Children Of The Night with HDH

Hi all, it's been a while since this little cubbyhole saw some activity hasn't it. Mr Mojo went on an extended holiday and left a Fibro flareup to keep me company. NOT a good companion! Anyway.....
I do have a project here to share with you today.
It's week 2 of the Haunted Design House challenge
Children Of The Night
and it's sponsored by another of the Minions - our uber talented Ike who has her shop here. Also her very own challenge blog - Ike'sworld Challenges.
The tag I made uses an image of hers that appears to have been discontinued. Sorry Ike, I should have checked.
 This is the Sphinx Moth
Coloured with distress inks, fussy cut the body out and adhered to the main image then partly coated with crackle accents.
The tag itself is a spellbinders gravestone diecut. Painted with black acrylic, then a layer of decoart "weathered wood" then grey acrylic. The RIP added using a stencil and more paint.
The candlestick is a TH die and got the same treatment. This time using copper as a top coat on the base and a red/offwhite colour combo for the candles. Then there's the spider's web - another diecut with just a touch of white glitter.
A bit of black seam binding. and done.
Now your turn to get those derrières over to play at Haunted Design House as well. 

I'd like to enter this tag into the challenge at
Left Of Centre - Use diecuts
Simon Says - Tag It


  1. Mr Mojo is definitely back! This is brilliant. Love love love all the crackle paint on your tag, really gives it that finishing detailing and look of texture. Brilliant diecuts and great layout with the elements sitting off the tag.

    Thank you so much for joining in our current fortnightly challenge 'Diecuts' over on the Left of Centre Creative Challenges Blog. It's also brilliant to see you have joined our new Facebook group :-)
