Deliciously Dark

Delicious Doodles have branched out and are now hosting challenges for those of you that favour the DARK. It's no secret that Teri loves drawing her dark images and has now decided that it's time to have a challenge specifically for them. ........... SO NO CUTE allowed at
I am honoured to be amid a team of immensely talented crafters asked to join the team and our first challenge has gone live today. You have nearly a month to get those deliciously dark projects made and linked up at the challenge linky. For more deets - you'll just have to go look for yourselves.
I have made a couple of hanging ornaments suitable for either Hallowe'en or Creepmas using a blank wire snowflake frame.
First up is the image "Skully Pendant"
The image printed 12 times (6 mirror images) Coloured and fussy cut out. Seed beads form the vertebra, then the images stuck front and back. More beads and finished off with a black ribbon bow.
My second one features that gorgeous Raven Skull Pendant image.
Same principle - 12 images stuck either side of the wires then dipped in UTEE. Beads and ribbon to complete.

Now go look again at all the eye candy the rest of the guys came up with, get your thinking caps on and come join us so we can ooooo and arhhhh at yours.

I'd like to enter my onaments into the challenges at
