"a day for daisies'" Black out Challenge #4


Today starts a brand new challenge over at "a day for daises."  Get spooky in honor of the season! Use as much black as possible! There’s black paper, black paint, black glitter, and black ribbon… it won’t be easy but lets’ see how dark you can be!

The challenge begins today (October 15, 2010) and will close on November 4th at Midnight PST. So that means you have a whole two weeks to play along!

The winner will recieve; 2 digi images of their choice from, their image and blog link featured on our home page, an exclusive Flower Basket winner’s badge, and their image archived among the amazing talent in our sketchbook! The winner will be announced on Friday, November 5th. All you have to do is upload your entry at the end of this post to link up your entry!

If you visit the challenge blog, you can pick up an adorable freebie witch to use in the challenge.

Here's my creation.  I guess I am a literal kind of girl so I of course I challenged myself to go completely black and almost accomplished the tasked.  I title this card "Little black dress," because I don't celebrate Halloween; however, this dress reminds me of the bride of Frankstein's wedding dress.  TFL!
