HDH 163 Dante, A Divine Comedy

Time for another challenge over at Haunted Design House. This weeks theme is about Dante.
The Divine Comedy/ Dante's Inferno
I'm sure most of you know at least the rough gist of the story, Dante battling through the different levels of hell, so the challenge is not to read the Divine Comedy although you can, but to create something inspired by Dante's time down under.
Dante passed through.
Now you can pick a circle of Hell that appeals to you or feel free to sum up Dante's time as a whole, or just a wild Hellish vision of your own. 
So for the Challenge I decided to create an ATC with the theme Purgatory based on the 9th Circle of Treachery. My image was created in Photoshop then printed, cut and mounted on to the ATC base cut from mountboard. The edges were then stamped with gold leaf ink as a finishing touch.
A Great challenge. Thanks for taking the time to stop by and read.
Hugs Fiona.

HDH162-Drop Dead Georgeous

It's that time again for another challenge over at Hauntaed Design House. I have really missed participating in the challenges there as they are one of my favourites. But now I am back in the swing again after a short absence. So here is what I have created......................
Our next challenge is :
Drop Dead Gorgeous

Think corpses, zombies, grave digging or even our old favourites, vampires!
I decided to create an ATC for the challenge. I cut my ATC from Mountbard as I love the sturdiness this gives. I then created a spooky background in photoshop printed out and adhered to the mountboard base. My main figure of the piece.......Elvira Mistress of the Dark ( thanks to Mestadelsbilder's ) a Delightfully Georgeous Creature that she is. Resized in photoshop to fit, printed out and attached to the ATC base.
Voila.........a fun and quirky comic book style ATC  that was fun to create.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by and read.

Back after a long Silence.....................

Hello all has it really been nearly four months since my last post..................I really have neglected this blog!!!! It has all been down to a family crisis involving my daughter, seperation from her partner and a custody battle for the kids. Mum to the rescue to help sort things out..............Things seem to have settled for the moment but there is still a long way to go before all is resolved. Explains why I have been absent in blogland as well as my favourite challenges to boot. Well all is about to change. During all this I have still been active in creating Just......... I might say not as much as usual. Over the next week I have a lot to post so hang in there folks.  So over at Deviant Scrap there is a new designer in the house. Some of you may be familiar with her works as am I and I have loved her collage sheets for the past two years and have quite a collection in my private stash. So it is my pleasure to welcome Itkupilli Imagenarium into the fold. Here are some artworks featuring her fabulous kits all availble in her store Itkupilli Imagenarium over at Deviant Scrap.
