I know I'm not the only one that doesn't like to work with pink. This week there seems to have been a conspiracy going on .... Pink, Glitter, all things girly infact. Even Haunted Design House - that haven for us "dark creatures" - has turned turned to pink this week. They do specify on the brink though to give them their due. Brink of what though? That's upto each individual. I know that this week has had me all "pinked out" for a few days and I'm going away on a short break, either today or tomorrow to recover.
This project is filling 3 challenges....
Haunted Design House for their Pink on the Brink and the Smeared and Smudged Forum challenge taking inspiration from the video "Tea Party" by Kerli. I have taken 3 aspects of that video - the triangles/cones, stripes and that bejewelled skull used as a centre piece. I am also entering this into Glitterbabe's challenge #8 - a recipe requiring sparkle, glitter, bling and 2 flowers.
Using a skull rubber stamp from Happy Daze, stamped 7 times and cutting out each layer slightly smaller than the previous one (pyramage?) layered them all up after glittering the edges. The base layer has the black glitter for the eyes and nose hole. The top was then studded with various pink and clear gems. I threaded some seed beads for the edges of each layer onto thread before sticking down. The light pink stripes are from crafty choas Halloween Bride collection - though I have heat embossed with pearlised powder and that lightens the paper - the effect I wanted I might add. The flowers have a little skull stuck on the brad. The pink box was part of a multicoloured stacking set that I have had up in the attic for years.
