Masked Beauties ATC swap and a dangerous tag

As I mentioned in yesterday's post, Kimberly is currently hosting a Halloween swap with the theme MASKED BEAUTIES. I took some time out yesterday to make the ATCs so that I can get them in the mail. You can never tell how long a little package will take to get to its destination.






I used some of my precious vintage Swarovski trim on them and a little bit of gold paint under the cut out corners. It wasn't until after I had taken the photos that I noticed that I hadn't used enough of the gold paint on one in particular, lol, but I have fixed that now.

I also made a tag for this week's Tag Tuesday theme, which is DANGER. Difficult theme and it wasn't until after I had watched a horror film that I knew what I wanted to do -





I started by colouring the background with different blue inks. Then I cut out a spooky old castle. Had to cut the pic and rearrange it because the tower was too tall, so I cut a piece of the right side and glued it on the left side. Next was the screaming lady, which I hand coloured with Spectrum Noir and Promarker pens. The lightning wasn't easy to do, my white pen wasn't very co-operative, so I used a glittery jelly roll pen as well. A bit of a large moon in the top corner, and a flock of menacing birds completed the scene. All that was left was to add the words. 

She is definitely in danger of being pecked to death by that flock of birds of maybe even of being torn to pieces by the walking dead in the castle............
Lol, I know, I should stop watching horror movies!

Every detail is amazing. I love how you put your imagination to work on these tags.
The decorated and masked women are so deserving of that beautiful Swarovski trim. Just perfect!!!
I'm busy in my studio right now - there's no stopping me! (hehe!)
Big scarey hugs,
