February's Challenge Winner is in the box.

Welcome back! We have a double treat today! Yepp a bit late on announcing our February Winner but none the less here we are!

The winner is IKE for her wickedly dark playing card! Check it HERE
Drop us an email at dreamindarknessblog@gmail.com I think Asylum Anne has a non-looney treat in store for ya!

And part two of the treat! Better than Valentine candy for sure....welllll unless it's chocolate!



It has been confirmed, Asylum Anne is bonkers - she's hearing Voices!  Stencilgirl Voices to be precise.  The March Club stencils are out, and she has voiced her opinion of them:

Normally, Stencils are part of layering sequences when I use them, but these stencils fell so far out of the box, they ARE the box – with all the rigidity that implies. Once I have a “story”, a piece just takes off, and this 12x12 page was no exception.  The starkness of the stencil lines, the bleakness of the story, the straight lines of film strip down the sides, and all I needed were some illustrative stamps from SilverCrowCreations.com (alas their vulcaniser, Pete, has been unwell, their stamps are temporarily unavailable) Poor Leonardo Da Vinci bottom right, with staircases to the sky… Rigidity is scary!


These “Legal Eagle” crows have been waiting a few years to submit their evidence, as have some tags prepped with shaving cream background. In order to retain as much of that colour, the stencil was used with clear embossing powder on the right-facing xrow. The diagonal lines on the 6” stencil worked well, and the book stamp was stamped twice for each page, fussy cut, then extra-fussy cut and glued over the the bigger one to look like real pages. Because the tags’ theme was words, the other one had a background of stamped text before the stencil was overlayed – giving shades to the meaning of words generally. The crossword/scrabble stamp in full reads Feel Better, but implies other things when split as they are here. Again, all stamps from Silver Crow Creations

Well, I'm off to help St Paddy hunt down snakes... see you later!
