Somewhere Between Chance & Mystery....

July 17th 2011


The Summer of Colour this week is RED (LOL I'm a bit early posting!!) and I've used red as a "feature" on this card so thought it would fit in with this wonderful colour challenge blog! LOL I used my fingers to "drag" the red paint down this card obviously to make it look like bloody hand prints!!!

There is also a new challenge blog starting up: Forever Night Challenges which is going to focus on the "darker" side of crafting including gothic, steam punk, emo, punk that sort of edgy dark art!! Now this is an area I really haven't gotten into although I've done some steam punk items and loved it and have just recently started colouring in darker more striking colours and trying to make images look more macabre!!!


So the first challenge is an Anything Goes Theme with this "genre" in mind . I've used a CS Designs image from the "Solitaire / Behind the Mask Series - PERFECT images for this type of challenge!!!! I've used the Solitaire Mysterious Butterfly image - now if you look at the picture below which is from Chris' Shop you will see how totally different this image looks when coloured more traditionally compared to the dark greys and blood reds I've used for this card. Just goes to show how versatile these designs can be!!!



The sentiment I have used is also from the CS Designs range of digis and is a perfect match for this "masked" image! The cute little cat is just a Clipart picture I found and thought was a "cute" little addition to this "dark" card!

It's amazing what a change in color can do to an image. I liked seeing the different versions of the image next to one another. Totally different feel of each piece. Great work!
