A bit Goth

Evening all!  Early tonight as I have a date with The Mentalist :)))
Been in a bit of a Marilyn Manson mood today and opted to colour in Elainia which is a new digi by Hannah Lynn over at Crafts & Me

The actual digi doesnt come with too many swirls in the hair so its nice for beginners as you can just do a solid block of colour and trace a bit darker around the outlines like the original whereas I kinda put a line in here and a line in there and you know how it is the pen just runs away with you and you end up with curls and twirls :)  Had a lot of fun though :)

I added some make up and pinky purple cheeks and added 4 little dots with a white gel pen and mounted in a frame made with a corner adourner.  The black organza ribbon bow looked too neat so I shredded the ends and Ive used one of the Tim Holtz clock dies with pine needsles distress ink and a little doily dyed with my purple versacolor ink pad (then it finally fell apart lol!)  I dyed some of the flowers black and purple with promarkers and added some black nail heads and the clock hands on the bottom right.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!

BTW Promarkers used (As I know you find it helpful but I'm so forgetful!) were..

Orchid, Purple, Aubergine (Hair/Eye make up)
Blush, Orchid, Fuschia (Skin/cheeks)
Cool grey 1, 3, 5, Black (Clothes)
Grass, Lush (Eyes)

I'd like to enter into....

This looks stunning - I adore these images but I'm just too scared to try them for myself as I'm useless at colouring hair - one day I'll pluck up the courage LOL!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
Love, Andrea xx
