Hurray! The first of my weekly challenge entries is done. This ATC is for Isa's weekly challenge. I was puzzling over interesting words beginning with the letter 'G', and I got hit by inspiration! This doesn't happen all of the time to me, so I did rush into my craft area and get going as soon as I could. Then I had to rush back to my computer to create the background text, which is from the various spam emails I get trying to sell me pills I definitely don't need! I am fascinated with the computer generated text that these emails contain, they make no real sense but have a gothic, whimsical feel. (If you haven't received this kind of email, lucky you.) I also have this great Cherry Pie face image, which also has a gothic feel, so there we are!
All of the images are stamped in black Stazon onto white card. Stamps are by Cherry Pie, Tanda Stamps and PSX, and I coloured the eyes with blue felt pen, washed over with a metallic watercolour paint. The black line at the right hand edge is narrow black velvet ribbon. Isa's extra options this week were to follow a sketch for the layout and use alphabet stamps, both of which I have done!
I ended up with four ATC sized backgrounds, so may do another three ATCs in this vein. I think 'Vampire's kiss' may have to be one of them, very traditional!
