Tiddly Ink Challenge #53 Going Goth & Tue. Morning Sketches #97

This card was a perfect card for me to do this week for Tiddly Inks Challenge #53 Going Goth.

I say it was perfect because I made it a "Missing You!" card and I certainly have missed you all.

Like everyone life has gotten a little crazy and I haven’t had the time to work on a card until late Monday and then it was just too late.

The font I used was called Bleeding Cowboy – odd name but it good name for how you would feel if you are missing someone Goth.

I used Tiddly Inks Gothic Lady I will say I did adjust it a little just to make it easier on me and this beautiful image has a wonderful frame on it that I did cut out.  I was drawn to this image for some time and had bought it a while ago.  You don’t often think of making someone crying, but she sure does make being sad beautiful.

I colored her with Copic markers, mostly in the red and black with the C grey family.  I did however use the colorless blender on the outside to give it that faded out color on the edge.  To give the red in her dress a deeper blood red I then went over it with W grey 02 which made a big difference.

I used paper that looked weathered to just finish that Goth and sad feeling.  And cut out 2 frames with my Spellbinders.  The design was to complete the Tuesday Morning Challenge # 97

I hope you enjoy my Goth Lady and I look forward to getting back into doing these challenges.
