Welcome to the Dark Side…

Wednesday Stamper has challenged us to show our Goth style this week and while, strictly speaking, I’m not very Goth-inclined, I used to sell a lot of Goth jewellery and black candles, etc. at the Sunday market! I do have a curiosity/affinity for the Dark Side and here are a couple of examples of darker stuff I thoroughly enjoy creating!

Here’s the Bug Box I was talking about yesterday – DD hates it!!

It’s a hexagonal box which comes ready to alter and I painted it with lovely Stewart Gill paint, added the architectural stamp, using black Stazon and then painted a purple glittery glaze over that. On the top I stuck down a rubber scarab beetle and some black/grey eyelash fibres, with gel medium.

This domino was stamped and inked then heat set. The skeleton border is from Third Coast RS and I stamped the sides of the dom too! Then I glazed it with gel medium (gloss) and stuck the rubber ant on to look as if he’s climbing over the skellies…

It’s great fun because all the ant’s legs wobble when you pick it up! It’s a bit gross, but I know the boys will love it!!

  15. Rosie, the real truth is that I stopped by your blog a couple of days ago and was so taken with these that all I did was look! I actually didn’t even think of commenting then because I was so busy looking! What wonderful, inventing pieces!! Obviously, they are captivating!! The black bugs actually look wet and slimy! Great, shiny black color with your gorgeous blue!!
