About Me

My photo
I would classify myself as an artist. It took me a while to finally accept that monicker, but that's what I am; AN ARTIST!!! I have a wonderful hubs that supports my "talents" in most all avenues, except maybe when the credit card bill comes in the mail...LOL And I have 4 great kids and 5 beautiful grandchildren that I love to pieces. Come on by and sit a spell and "STAMP 'TIL YA CRAMP!!! & "CROP 'TIL YA DROP!!!"

Royal Bleeding Heart Club.....

A rose by any other name would still be a rose nine......Bwahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!

Hmmmmmm....gottcha wondering about the title and the verse above.  Well, don't these really look like bleeding roses.  Their not really roses at all.  They are actually the number 9 from the Happy Hauntings cartridge (pg. 36....see on bottom).
I was really stuck (no pun intended) with the latest challenge at
 Haunted Design House.  This week its "Queen of the Damned", but anything royal would suffice.  I so see a evil princess/queen having roses like this.

I punched out the leaves with a leaf punch and ran my stylus down the middle to create the spine of the leaf. 
I used crystal effects to emphasize the blood droplets. 



Doesn't that #9 really look like a bleeding rose in the booklet..........well maybe  very artsy bleeding rose...Bwahhahahahaha!!!


I love to look at images in a different way. 

I really stretched this one to resemble the challenge......

But all fair in love and challenges!!!!!!

Until later, fellow members.........Gotta split......TFL!!!!!!!

Hi Crystal yes I can see the wicked queen using these 'flowers' they look great the crystal accents look like dripping blood, I can't believe they have been made using numbers this is both creative and quality.
