Goth or Emo Starts Today for the PPP Challenge

PPP Challenge No. 4 starts TODAY!

This month is  art with the theme “Goth or Emo.” We want to see anything you want to create, be it cards, altered art, journal pages, scrapbooking, ATCs, jewelry, etc., BUT your piece of art must be in the Goth or Emo realm.  Our amazing sponsor this month is Bugaboo Stamps. Bugaboo is offering seven digis as our prize this month. Take a hop over to the shop. You will be overwhelmed with the variety of images Bugaboo Stamps has available. There are also a few freebies to pick up along the way.  PPP’s Goth/Emo challenge ends on July 7 at 11:59 p.m. CST. So you have plenty of time to play along.  Here is my contribution:
I used “Skelekinz Moon” from Bugaboo Stamps.  You can get yours here.  My thought was to show how versatile it is.  I know that there are fathers out there who would love to get a card like this.  I believe my son-in-law is one of them.
I used:
A Sky Blue AtYouSpica pen
Here is a list of the copics:
BG 93
C-1/c-3/C-5/C-7
E-41
G-20
R-24
V-12/V-15
Y-23
YG-0000,YG-11
Then I used Angels Coffee Shop Mist, a Distress Marker–Picket Fence, and a Lattice Rectangle Nestie.

You are also invited to a fun group at The Crafter’s CaféPoisoned Peas Please. This is a place to chat and show off your alternative style. All people and art are welcomed. The more the merrier.  We have so much fun there and would love to have you join us!  Thanks for looking and remember…

I decided to make ATCs for Skull Appreciation Day.

I used an ATC image sheet from JLeeloo on Etsy.  I put distressed ink around all of them.  All of the eyes & nose are embossed in black.  There is some kind of embossing on all of the ATCs.  I added the flowers & b/c the were originally white I added color to them.  I also added drops of ink to look like blood droplets.  I hope you will join this weeks Smudgy Antics challenge and enjoy the hop.
