Left of Center Creative Challenges- Challenge 1



Hello!  I am so excited to have the Left of Center Creative Challenges (LOC) go live today!  The first challenge is Buttons and/or Bows or a LOC themed project!   We have a wonderful group of designers and some fabulous sponsors lined up- I hope you can join us!  We allow both traditional crafting styles as well as the left of center styles- steampunk, anime, goth, Halloween (year-round), mythical, supernatural, etc.  Swing by and have a look at the rules if you are curious!

For my project I did a Halloween card using one of the images from our sponsor, Floppy Latte Designs.  It's called Artsy Coffin.

I added a bit of shading with copics, and a layer of Black Diamond stickles around the edge.  The papers are from My Mind's Eye- Haunted House collection.  The twine is from dollarama, and the black bow is from vintage seam binding ribbon.  I think that is the last of that ribbon.  :(  I need to find more! I have been lucky to find a good bit of seam binding at the thrift stores lately.  The sentiment I think is computer generated.  I think.  I had it already printed out- not sure if I did it or it was someone else. Oops!   Card stock is bazzil and Recollections.

I hope you can find some time to join in our challenge- it runs for two weeks.
