New Delicious Darkness Challenge #1

I am Super Excited to announce that the very first challenge over at The Delicious Darkness Challenge blog has now gone LIVE................... A brand new 'dark side' challenge blog featuring Delicious Darkness images!..............And I am soooo Excited to be on the Design Team YAY!!!!!!! So for our first challenge it's anything goes folks as long as it Dark and not Cute. You may enter any type of papercraft creation but it MUST be a dark/gothic/alternative creation.
The Challenge runs from the 13th of every month to the 10th of the next so there's plenty of time to play and get creative.
 So folks for my first project as a Design Team Player I decided to create a Coffin Box and Pendant to go Inside. I started off with a Tando Creative 3d Coffin box. Once assembled I applied Delicious Darkness Beastly Paper to cover the coffin Lid.  Decoart Media Crackle glaze was then applied and once dry Decoart Media Antiquing cream was applied and the wiped back to reveal all the lovely cracks. A coat of DecoArt Media Matte Varnish was then applied to seal. A centrepiece was then Die Cut using black glitter card and attached strategically to the coffin lid. A final embellishment of  Delicious Darkness Rams Skully was resized in photoshop to fit on top of the Glitter Embellishment as the main Focus. To finish black satin ribbon was applied around the top edge of the Coffin Lid. The Base of the coffin was then given a coat inside and out of DecoArt Media Acrylic paint in black and when dry Finished with a coat of DecoArt Media Matte Varnish to protect. Now onto the pendant which is to be housed inside the coffin box. Delicious Darkness Rams-Skully was resized in photoshop to fit the pendant base. Glued into place and then DecoArt Media Liquid Glass applied. This is amazing stuff as it drys to a clear glass like resin finish and can also be used to create dimensional elements on your projects. Once Dry the pendant was then strung on a black leather  and Grey sheer ribbon thong to finish. A stylish but Gothic in nature gift. I do hope you will join us over on the Delicious Darkness Challenge blog.
