Gothic Fan

My team-mate at A Step Into The Dark, Lisa, came up with some creepy cool designs and I really wanted to try one out today. I have used her Skull digi as the centrepiece for my Gothic style fan. The fan is cut with a…

Steampunk Masquerade

Today I have been having so much fun! Today I finished my Steampunk Mask! I started off with a plain white cardboard princess mask to which I added some grungeboard tentacles. I love grungeboard – it is sturdy and inkable, yet flexible…….mostly I love it…
