Dark Valentine - Delicious Doodles

Happy Saturday morning

Just a quick reminder that I am looking for DT's for my new challenge blog over @ Eclectic Ellapu.
This is a new venture and I hope you will support me on the journey.  If you are interested in joining just pop over and have a look around.

Now onto the reason for me posting here LOL.  It has been a while, a long, long while since making a goth card and I have to say it made a change and thoroughly enjoyed it.  The image i used is called Dark Valentine by Teri Sherman of Delicious Doodles.

I coloured her using promarkers and prisma pencils.  I used glossy accents on her lips and nails.  I did use them on her rose too but later on in the project I placed a wee rose on top LOL.  So indecisive....The backing, although it hardly visible is spider web lace against red card however I used it also for the bow.  I attached a heart and cross charm to the bow.  The flowers at the base of the card are from my stash. I altered them and added glossy accents as I did on the spellbinder leaves.  However before hand I sprayed them with red mist.  I just love accents bet you can't tell LOL.  I added a couple of marabou feathers for a little softness.  Well thats about it from me right now. 

In the full pics it looks like her fang is her entire mouth and I suppose that is due to my beloved accents grrrr so I took a couple of close ups to show the defined fang LOL.

I have to add that this card may be entered into the OUTLAWZ magazine called Through the Craftroom Door.  If you subscribe you may just see it there in the next issue or another project by me if this one cannot be used due to me posting it on here too early LOL.  Hop on over here to take a peek at the magazine and you may just like it enough to subscribe for small fee ... I did!!!
