At Crafty Cardmakers this week the theme is Cute with a Dark Twist. We are sponsored this week by the lovely Joanna Sheen who is offering a £10 voucher to one lucky winner for her on-line store. What is Cute with a Dark Twist, I hear you say? Well, some of the team (but not all) have gone for a cute Halloween theme. My own twisted sense went for something different!
I started with a tag from Crafty Individuals which I coloured by inking through sequin waste with ColorBox Chalk ink in roughe and pigment ink in Robins Egg and Glacier Ice. Then I sprayed over the top with Silver Sugar and Kiwi Glimmer Mist and mounted the tag onto burgundy card. I stamped the little girl (from Tim Holtz's The Girls set) and paper pieced her dress with paper from Basic Grey Hello Lucious pad paper. I also used some of the paper on the tag. The 'alternative' Little Miss Muffet rhyme was printed on my computer (ending written by myself) and matted onto burgundy card. Then I added some bling and fibres.
The box was made out of the same Basic Grey pad and lined with Doodlebug Crushed Velvet card in Ladybug, then a brad and fibre to make it easier to open the box.
The lovely spider is made from beads and wire. I used a flower bead for her (definitely a her) body, a round crystal for her head and then silver bugle beads and clear seed beads for her legs.
