Don't Fear


Well what a fab theme over at Dragons Dream TIO this week.  Sylvia has chosen 'don't fear', she is asking for a scary image, a crowd of purple and textures.  So I ran my tag through the rellie rave Cuttlebug embossing folder and coloured it with violet shade (470.3) pan pastel and added a hint of black (800.5) around the edges.  I stamped the skulls with black stazon, one onto acetate and two onto white card.  I stamped the bottles onto acetate again with black stazon.  I placed the skulls behind the bottles and cut the excess off.  The top skull has been placed behind a piece of white card.  I stamped fear your dreams from the TH, stuff to say stamp plate and cut the individual words out.  I cut a piece of wire mesh to go over the top and used staples to attach it.  I added gem stones for the eyes, an eyelet and some black fibres to finish.

Great challenge, thanks very much.

This tag won me a Dragons Dream top 3 blinkie.
