this weeks SSS image!

Well here's the image for this week for my DT card for SSS.
This ones very gothic, I was in a state last month due to Hard drive failure, so I asked Heather Valentin to select the images for me, and really I should have known what I was going to get, lol. Ta Heather, xxx
so here's my card for this week.................


 This is Tempest Lil Gothie. Just sitting there waiting. Waiting, waiting waiting!
So how do you deal with the image? For me, she's in some kind of Cage or dark place, waiting to be released. So the card has to reflect what I see.
Dark blue, nearly black pearlescent base card, embossed with an A4 touch of mica, gears mask, sanded to reduce the finish, to symbolise Time.
Silver Buckram paper with a metalic mesh effect, for the cage, and flowers made with Spellbinders Spiral Blossom One. Black pearlescent card for the leaves, and finally some black organza Ribbon, heated with the heat gun, to wrinkle and crinkle it.
And lots of grey Promarkers! a couple of red, a purple, and my favorite skin colour of the moment, March hare. Some gems, and a sentiment printed in MCS Chiller font, edged with a silver paint pen, and added to the base, more like a plaque than a sentiment.
The inside, is a base sheet from a free MCS download, a poppy, opacity reduced to match the faded, black grey theme of the card.
So I am now off to drive middlest back to College! Boring, and will do things like entries, and comments later, lol. In the Meantime, why not pop to SSS and have a look around, it doesnt cost anything to look.....

Hugs

Lou
