Dante, A Divine Comedy

Welcome to the new challenge at Haunted Design House, for the next two weeks the challenge theme is "The Divine Comedy" the story of Dante battling through the different levels of Hell.  Don't panic! you don't have to read it, the pic below gives you a breakdown of the circles of Hell Dante passed through.  

The challenge is to create something inspired by Dante's time in Hell.  You can choose one of the circles of Hell that appeals to you, or feel free to sum up Dante's time as a whole, or just a wild hellish vision of your own.

I have chosen the 3rd circle - Gluttony

The image is by Dahlig, who can be found on Deviantart. Everything else, from the card to the embellishments are from a craft store in Suffolk

Anything but a Card

Hi Everyone, I hope you enjoyed your weekend, I know, Monday comes around too soon, hopefully a new challenge at Smudgy Antics will brighten you day and that challenge is to make Anything but a Card.
So long as you use a stamped image (real or digi) you can create anything you like except a card of course :)
I decided to make a bookmark

Here it is

I have used digi stamp Grim Reaper Tombstone from the Build a Graveyard set by Smeared Ink. As soon as I saw this image I new I wanted to make a bookmark with him. I've coloured him with promarkers and added him to plain black card along with a little bling and attached a chain tassel.

Anything Poes - Quest 19

Hi Everyone and Welcome to a new month long challenge at Quoth The Raven, Nevermore and your quest this month is Anything Poes, you are to create...........................well, anything you like really.

PROVIDING it is Edar Allan Poe related!

I made this card whilst visiting my dear friend Black Dragon.  She did try to teach me to make my own flowers, but that didn't go well, so I bought these ones from her local craft shop.  BD made this gorgeous tassel and kindly gave it to me to use on this card.  She did, however, successfully teach me how to make my own tassels!  

Thanks BD. x
