Tuesday taggers.... 1st week as full time DT member

As some of you know i have been a part time member of the TUESDAY TAGGERS DT for a little while now, but last week they invited me and the other part timers to go full time so of cause i said yes.... Taggers being one of the 1st challenges i ever did and them usually being a little different from the 'norm'.... i was dead chuffed.
Any how heres my atc.... SCRAPZ is were i brought the stamp.... its stamped in black, and i've used midnight blue, deep purple, forrest green and black ink to colour the background. the moon is done using a mask and silver and gold ink. The trees are highlighted with a gold pen.
I like doing this darker more atmospheric stuff.... i keep trying cutie stuff but its not really me.

sophisticats challenge

This weeks challenge is a sketch by stef..... its an amazing sketch i think and i even used a flower!
I used black handmade paper with gold writing on. I stamped on a white flower in black ink and on to 2 small bits of card used gold liquid ink for detail and edges .
Sorry but i have no idea who made the stamp but its a very pretty little angel.... and i have it in 2 sizes.
Please go and check out this weeks challenge... and maybe vote for me as this months dt winner....??? I dont think so... the other DTs are all so talented... i'm the weak link.

Last weeks s-cats

The challenge last week at sophisticats was set by karen ... a brilliant sketch but NO STAMPED IMAGES!!!!!! well what can i say.... this was a hard one for me.... but when needs must the devil drives they say so i drew a cute little face and found gingham paper and ribbon in my stash and this is the end result.

Art on the darkside...

The challenge this week is 'lurking in the shadows'.
I used a stamp from 'scrapz' but cant remember the maker, and a part of a 'crafty individuals' doorway stamp.The words are from the same plate as the woman.
I made shadows using ink... all very simple.... and mounted it on red for contrast.
Thanks for taking time to look.

The challenge this week is to use a repulsive riddle or rhyme.... i have used a rhyme by one of my favourite writers...EDGAR ALLEN POE... these simple 2 lines haunt me.
The background was made by my little girls,,, the stamps are 'inkadinkado' and 'non-sequtur'.... i have used black and white pencils to define the details.
Thank you for taking time to come look.

Haunted design house

Oh how i love this challenge... i used a 'stamptivity' fairy stampcoloured her with water colour pencils and normal pencils, heat embossed with clear powder over the top, then used a circle template to colour in the moon... covered the moon and inked in the sky with 2xpurple inks and 2x blue inks.
I then stamped on some foiliage and the bats. I matted on to black card edged with gold.... and thats it.... she looks pretty wild to me, and has a wicked half smile.
Thanks for coming to look.
