Bite Me!

Purple and black are not my normal colours, but Lil Haunts Vampire Lilith, who is a digi from Tickled Pink Stamps, demanded to be given a Gothy and mysterious look, so what could I do?!

I have had the sparkly black card for years - it came in an assortment from The Range and I found it while having yet another clear-out of my shambolic craft room. The purple paper with writing on it is Papermania capsule collection, and I put it twice through my paper crimper to give a waffle texture, just for a change. The other paper was loose in a drawer and I can't remember its provenance!

I used a MS deep edger punch and a Nestie to give a bit more interest. The ribbon is from stash, it has a slight sparkle that isn't showing well. Also not showing is the distressing round the image and the addition of Whiff of Joy Christmas swirls, both in Milled Lavender DI. The sentiment is from The Greeting Farm, stamped in Dusty Concord DI. The flowers are from stash, I coloured the gems with my Speccies and added Glamour Dust to the petals.

Lilith has been coloured with Spectrum Noirs - the photo is a bit faded, in reality the colours are more vibrant. I added purple glitter to her collar and the bows on her skirt, and put Glossy Accents on her boots, the wine glass and her mouth! She looks as if she's about to say 'I do not drink.... wine' in a fake Transylvanian voice!

I'm entering two challenges: Inky Impressions Challenge - 'Dress to Impress' is the theme, and I think Lilith has done that! (Thanks, Joey, for the reminder!)

and a new challenge blog, Friday Sketch Challenge supplied exactly the sketch I needed!

Ok, back I go to my Grand Tidy-up - who knows what I'll find next?!

Thanks for looking, and have a good day!

luv, Mags x
