Challenge Reminder

The "Gothic Cuties" challenge is beginning its second week.  The post for submitting your entries is listed just a couple of postings below.  I  haven't received many entries in this challenge, so ladies get to work.  Everyone has a chance to win as the winner is picked by random generator.  The winner will be contacted next Tuesday after the challenge is over.

A big "thank you"  to Dilly Beans Digital Stamps for sponsoring this challenge which ends Sunday at midnight.  They have allowed the DT to use some of their wonderful images.  If you take a peek at their site, I am sure you will find something there you can use.  Here are some additional inspirational creations by the Design Team.
I used Dilly Beans' Page image.  Working with these images is so much fun and they are so versatile.  My image is colored with Copic markers and I love the sentiment.   The polka dot background keeps the image from being on the dark side  This is a great card for someone who is feeling blue or down because they are dealing with many problems.. 

Another Dilly Beans Gothic Cutie for this reminder post! I made this card using a completed ATC I already had - mounted it on an embossed card, added borders at the top and bottom and some baker's twine at the spine! Nice and colorful in bright orange and green!
I really wanted the image of the girl from Dilly Beans to be the focal point. Your eyes are so striking! I colored the face and the background of the image with Copics. I drew a frame around the image with Sharpies. The background was created with spray inks and some stamping.
This week I chose to make an ATC featuring Dilly Beans' Ragdoll Ruby.  I've colored her with pencils and layered her with torn coordinating designer papers.  I finished her off with buttons, ribbon and flower.  I love ragdolls and she is a cutie.  I hope you'll join our challenge!
The image on this card is a Sugar Nellie stamp. Layered onto papers from a craft CD.  I used watercolors  on this cutie. She is a wild one who likes to keep her toys well under control.
For my second card I used a Dilly Beans Stamps image #415 Pinkys Skull, coloured her with prismacolour pencils and odourless mineral spirits, layered the image on a piece from a DCWV matstack.
Krisha miss uploading a project last week, but she really went all out with 3 pieces of inspiration this week!


 Paige, my first choice is colored with colored pencil and mounted on a sparkling background, with black lace and black rhinestones. Sentiment is from 7 Gypsies.

 Here is Pinky's Skull Bow in 3 different colors, to match the sentiment from Inkadinkado.  The tag is 6 1/2 inches long and painted with water colors and tied with different colors of embroidery thread.  Who says Goth has to be so dark and dreary?

Last, but not least I went with Cordillia, printed her rather large to go into my art journal.  The sentiment is a song that has been running through my brain all morning.  I want to thank Dilly Beans for letting us use their CUTE digi images, they are just great!

I've used the creepy cute Cordillia (#378). She looks like she can be a real party animal if she puts her mind to it. I used pencils to colour her, layering colours. The rest of the card was created with  textured card & board. The sentiment was handwritten and a metal heart brad gives a final touch. Cordillia will be delighted if many of you cute Gothic creatures come and join her in the dungeons.
