Can I quote you on that?

Before I get on to this week's project... For anyone that actually reads this and is "into the Darker Side of Crafting"; Haunted Design House is having a Design  Team Call. You got until the 20th April guys and gals. Check it out using the link.

This weeks Haunted Design House challenge is to create around a favourite quote. There are so many that I like, it was hard to pin down to one, so most of this week has been with that question niggling at the back of my mind all the time. Aarrgghhh. I finally settled on one - then had to remember which when I finally sat down to make it last night. sheeesshhh.
It, of course, came back after I started something else. Quick, out with the stamps.
Based on a Mae West quote
I loosely based the layout on the Smeared and Smudged scrapbook sketchy for march. The main image is from the "As Death" set from Smeared Ink, coloured with promarkers.
The MS Drippy goo punch looks like the read out from an ECG m/c if you squint at it. Without red blood and a heart beat there would be no life in the man (or anyone really).
The bling - well it's no secret that "our Mae" loved her bling. So added a few little black and red gems and one humungous diamond in the corner.
That's about it for this week.

I am entering this into the challenge over at
