Today begins a new challenge over at A Day for Daisies - Black and Spooky! I couldn't resist this adorable little kitten image 'Black Cats for Sale' when Tammy first introduced it a month ago, so this seemed the perfect opportunity to get it all inky! :) As I was growing up, my bestest friend in the entire world was my beautiful black cat, Samantha. oh my gosh, she went absolutely everywhere with me. I had a basket on the front of my bike so she could go on every bike ride, if I went to visit relatives - along she went, she slept with me every night (probably why I insist our labbers sleep with us! grins!), she truly was my partner/shadow/confidante/friend. So coloring this image was great fun and brought back so many memories!
Their cutie little whiskers are outlined with my black spica glitter pen. The doily is sprayed several times with graphite glimmer mist, as is that most delish flower in the lower corner. isn't that thing just enough to make you drool? I won it in some blog candy and sure do wish I knew who made it and where I could find more.... if you happen to know, please let me know. Under that most gorgeous hunka hunka lucious vintage lace is a piece of Basic Grey Ambrosia dp that has also been sprayed with the graphite glimmer mist. A crinkledy wrinkledy piece of seam tape divides the doily and lace. some fun black rhinestones add a final bit of decoration while black diamond stickles edge the entire card.
Why don't you see how much black you can incorporate into your creation and play along with us? I bet you will find that it is much easier than you think! ;) and probably not so very spooky after all..... stop by and visit the other DT members, too! you know they will have some gorgeous things for inspiration!
edited to add - for today only a cutie patootie little witch freebie is available on the challenge blog for you! so grab it while you can!!!
