Left Of Center Challenge blog challenge #26 Die cuts sponsored by the stamping chef and Ike’s art 4

I’ve been cheeky and created two pieces for this challenge…so I’m sneaking in with team A to show you what I did with TSC’s ‘Bite me’

First off I love this image a LOT and spent ages colouring it… I have tried a lot of new techniques with this piece and absolutely love it!
Ingredients ;
Promarkers – burgundy, crimson, lipstick red, purple , amethyst and lilac, cool grey one, ivory
purple tartan paper from stash
a paper bag! (the inside was this fantastic skull and crossbones motif, so i hacked it down to size)
lace, purple ribbon, 
teal coredinations cardstock, homemade texture place, and a spellbinders impressabilities sheet
spiderweb borders and ribbon border cut on my Scan ‘N’ cut
black pearl cardstock
7 inch square card blank

I coloured the image, and cut around the edge. this was pre scan n cut so excuse the uneven edge!
I attached this to one edge of the silver diecut frame, so it looked like she was standing by a mirror- being a vampire, she of course, does not leave a reflection!
this i added to a piece of cardstock that i had already made up with homemade texture paste (talcum powder, tacky glue, glitter and mica powder)
behind that is a ribbon border with purple ribbon through it, on top of a purple tartan strip that was matted onto black pearlised cardstock . i put a little strip of lace under this before placing it onto the base which was made by matting a 7 inch square piece of black cardstock with a slightly smaller skull and crossbones ‘paper’. before gluing down onto the 8 inch card blank (which i had hacked an inch off each side to make 7 inches) , i tucked half of the spiderweb border underneath on two sides, to create an off the edge style thingy. 
and voila… my first card with bits ‘off the edge’!
Thank you also to Mo, who has let me publish this early, I would love to  be considered for a DT position on the punkyougirl challenge blog…i’m fairly new to dark but loving the challenge and doing some creepier stuff!

also entering at the TSC blog for ‘anything goes’ 🙂
