Now It IS Time for Our 3rd Challenge for July at Dream in Darkness

Thanks to all of you for making this possible for Dream in Darkness!  We are starting our 3rd challenge right now!  As always the theme is anything goes as long as you stick to the dark theme of the challenge.  Our marvelous sponsor is Ike's Art and we all have been given an image to work with this month and fun was had by all believe me! 

And now a another first for the Dream in Darkness Challenge, we have our first ever Guest Creative Team Member!  Welcome Wendy and we are soooo glad to have you in our lovely, creepy home!  Here is Wendy, our May winner, with her fabulous make using Ike's Art's "Skelly Cup" image!

 "Hi, my name is Wendy. I have always loved playing with paper. As a child, I would spend hours with my crayons, paper and scissors. The only difference now, is that my supplies include rubber and digital stamps, die cut machines and the computer plays a big part in my crafting. Paper crafting is my stress relief! I would like to thank the Dream in Darkness Team for inviting me to be a guest designer this month."

 Fabulous make, Wendy!!  Thanks for inspiring us and those who may want to be a Creative Team Guest Member themselves!

using "Angels and Demons"

 An altered book make into a shadowbox using DecoArt's media sampler kit. The insides contain fire elements from Mischief Circus' Light My Fire kit and the contents of the shadow box are a skelly, a cupid, some cash, and mini people from SilverCrowCreations.  The mirror is cut from a package insert that was super shiny! and a bead made by CT Kim.  The skull head is made from air dry clay from a mold I made and the portion of the gargoyle is polymer clay stamped with the stamp from the Smeared Ink rubber set called "Gargoyles".  Words on front and inside cover are by Tim Holtz's idea-ology Chitchat pad.
