My Entry

I often joke that behind my pink skin and red hair, there is a goth girl screaming to get out. I JUST LOVE the classic elegance of that dark ambiance; it's just romantic and mystic and unearthly. Yep, my goth girl needs out once in a while and it's challenges like the one The Greeting Farm is hosting that gives me that outlet to set her free. Their "Farm Fresh Fridays" challenge this week just so happens to be called "Goth Inspiration". My heart did a flip when I read this week's title and I just KNEW this was the challenge for me. I spent the WHOLE DAY today working on this card and I loved every minute of it. This is BY FAR the prettiest card I've ever made. And while I hope I win (of course), even if I don't, this card will be treasured.

So here's a side shot because the front view just doesn't do this beauty justice. This thing is LAYERED and is the most dimensional card that has movement because of the dangling teapot charm. Did I mention that I LOVE THIS CARD?!?!

Click on the link above to read about the challenge (there's still time to enter), and to see the inspiration pic... it was SO inspiring!!! You'd never guess that the black veil on this sad girl's hat is just another piece of white tulle that I colored with a copic marker. I did the same thing to the flower.... it started off white. You just gotta love those white staples! From buttons to bows, white can be made to match ANY color with copic markers! Well guys, that's it for today... now it's time to do my nails. Anyone else in the mood for a black mani?
