Today starts Poisoned Peas Please Challenge #6 — Dark Fairy Tales sponsored by one of our own team members, Ike. Ike has created some brand new images for our design team to work with. You need to check out her store, Ike’s Art, for some of her newest designs. Ike’s illustration talent is out of this world.
The challenge runs through September 8th. We want to see any kind of art you want to create, be it cards, altered art, ATCs, journal pages, fat books, anything that your heart desires, but we want an actual fairy tale with a “dark” nature. Most of the original fairy tales are very dark, at least until Disney got a hold of them. That’s what we want to see, the “dark” in that fairy tale. Please be sure to check out the challenge rules! Now, let’s see if I can give you some inspiration! 🙂
I chose “Beauty and The Beast” from one of Ike’s illustrations that she has yet to release.
Here is the list of Copics I used:
I used some gray & white chalk for the background. I honestly love this movie & I love this illustration. I loved doing the hair & experimenting with the color of his skin & teeth. This was a fun digi for me. Ike is offering a $10 gift certificate to her store, Ike’s Art, for the winner of this challenge. That sounds like a fun prize to me.
After you have entered, come show us your little piece of a “Dark” Fairy Tale at The Crafter’s Café – Poisoned Peas Please.
Please go to the Poisoned Peas Please Challenge Blog to see all the wonderful inspiration there is there to see and they will be adding more inspiration in a couple of weeks. Be sure to check that out. I’m sure it will have you excited to craft! This is definitely a fun challenge. Have a fun day & I hope you have been inspired to create. Remember to “Beware Dark Shadows!”….Bwahaha
