Tainted Love

 
'Tainted Love' is the title of the current challenge at The East Wind.  To me this was an invitation to make a 'darker' themed card! I used the gorgeous Pink rose and shimmer chiffon digital image which I was lucky enough to win in a previous challenge. I printed her twice, once on cardstock, once on vellum. I coloured the image with copics (love colouring these images!) then fussy cut around the flowers so that I could attach it over the vellum to give the effect of chiffon (hope this makes some sense!!!). I then placed the image over the skull (a fabulous Delicious Doodles image.)
 
 
 The red heart is a doily which I covered with versamark and  heat embossed red.. The background paper (Delicious Doodles again) is distressed and edged with black die cut lace (Sizzix Tim Holtz die, long neglected!) then faux stitched using a white gel pen. The banner is stamped, fussy cut and handwritten. The words to the song are firmly implanted in my headwhere they are spinning round and round interminably
....and now probably in yours too!
 Thanks for visiting
