Drum Roll, Please! Today's the Day! Welcome to the Dream in Darkness Challenge!

We promised you it was coming and it is HERE!  The first every Dream in Darkness Challenge! As it always will be, the theme is Anything Goes!  We want you stampers, digi stampers, digital makers, mixed media makers, steampunk folks, goth, painters, you name it if you can create it to come play in our dark playground.

There are not a lot of rules but please read the few we have so you know what we are about.  Think of us as more Alice in Wonderland and maybe the land of Oz than Snow White or Bambi.  We know that there are a lot of playgrounds for all the awesome cute, fantastic card makers and we tip our hat to them in admiration, however there are few places to play where it is Halloween all the time!  And it is Halloween here every day of every month!! 

To kick us off for our first ever challenge, the amazing Rick St. Dennis is sponsoring us and giving away a prize of some of his digital images to our winner!  Rick is featured in our "Creepster Feature" this month where you can find out all the many places he is at with his fabulous work!  Just click on the tab above to read about Rick!  Our winner will also be asked to be a "guest designer" for the next month and take our lovely badge to place on their blog.

The winner will be chosen by random drawing and our Creative Team will pick a favorite to mention and show their entry and they will also get to take an awesome badge for their blog!

Now that most of the housekeeping is done..Whew! let's get to the good stuff!

Our Creative Team has each use a Rick St. Dennis image in their creation.  And we must take a moment to brag about our team!  They are the best of the best and we have a great time doing this and that is the most important thing to us!  We want to have fun and we want you to have fun!  So without further delay here they are the Dream in Darkness Creative Team showcasing Rick St. Dennis's awesome digital images!

To lead us into the darkness, we  have "Growling" Granne with REaPeR (click to go to store and image) on a cover of a mixed media book! I would take care to not interrupt her creative time...






Next it's "Asylum" Anne with Nurse RoZeTta who says "Smoking is injurious to your health! Put your butts behind mine!" And this is sort of a teaser as the Nurse will be popping up in some unusual places with lots more detail during the month! You can stalk Anne on Facebook in the mean time, but do so quietly...just a warning....





Just a hint at how Nurse RoZeTta is "stuffed"...





And batting next is "Kuriousier" Kim with something to heat things up a bit! A digital hybrid canvas.


Using the image
                                                      Rum Poison Bottle Label for Monique  


To bring us home is "Up to No Good" Nan with a touching clock wedding shadow box using the image Let's Have a Little Chat.


 


Now it's your turn to show US what you have made!  You have a month, the challenge runs from the 1st day of the month until the very last day so No Excuses!  The dog didn't eat it, you didn't leave it on the bus, and your children didn't accidently flush it down the toilet!  So as you can see we have all your excuses covered, now run along, don't trip in the dark! 

Do be careful but do create and enter our challenge!  And do take a peek at the Creative Teams blogs to see the details of their fab makes!  Enough chatting, off with you!  

Mr. Evil Froggy will link your entry so no more questions!

Gentle reminder kind Dark Folks, please make sure your linky is to the project itself and the project is New and not posted before May 1st, 2015. Thanks!
