Now I'm not saying they all look suicidal (they do though!) but the next time you see a Goth I hope you now hear the words above. Over the years they have been a massive source of amusement to me; they walk around with faces that look like a smacked a*se, angry at the world but with no clue why, clothing that has the statuatory amount of straps needed for mentally disturbed patients, a glaringly obvious allergy to any and all soap products and more kohl eyeliner on than Max Factor generate in one year of trading.
Why the massive downer on Goths you ask - 'cause I can, is my reply but also because this week's challenge over at the Kenny K Krafty Krew blog is Going Gothic.
I really struggled with this one as it is not really something I have ever looked at before. After chosing Lady Raven from the Kenny K Downloads site I kind of knew that my main colour was going to be purple as I didn't want to use too much black and I wanted to keep the card a little more upbeat. I have used a lovely Sizzix Bigz die for the heart and the mask is a Spellbinders one, something Venetian I think. I also used one of their new D-lite dies, that gothic looking iron gate just looked perfect but was a bit of a swine to cut out. I used some cereal packet liner between the die and the card to make it come out easier and that worked a treat though, so I will be saving all my liners from now on!! The skull and crossbones paper is from Magnolia and I have had it on the table forever, waiting for something to come along and I love it on here, it certainly matched the mood of the image I think.
Before I sign off this week I must say a massive Thank You to all the lovely new followers and as you may be aware, I have been running a Candy challenge for the last two weeks and after putting everyone's name on a piece of paper and asking Jo to choose one at random I can now tell you that the winner of 3 Kenny K images of her choice is...
Congrats honey. You emailed me a couple of weeks ago when the challenge first started so if you want to have a look at the Kenny K Downlloads site and let me know which three images you want, I will pass them on to the lovely Suzie who will send them to you after speaking with Kenny or Elena.
So that's me for this challenge, hope I see you again soon,
take care of each other,
Hugs 'n Stuff
