My card this week has been made using this gorgeous image Emo Valentine Fairy by Delicious Doodles. I love the darker images that Teri does but have never had the courage to have a go. There are so many very talented artists out there I have been afraid to use these images as I didn’t think I could do them justice. I specifically chose this image to make a card that my eldest neice could frame. I have missed out on a lot of her childhood due to an estrangement with my Sister for many years but we are all building bridges and strengthening our relationships with one another. In the meantime this once little girl has grown up to be a beautiful 20 year old Emo and I know she will love this to a T.

I coloured the image using Promarkers and Flexmarkers and added some silver gel pen for the skull jewellery and lots of stickles glitter for the wings. I used a black cardstock for the base and covered with some spotty paper. I found a ‘girly’ skull in my digis with a bow on it which I thought was perfect so I made a border out of it and cut a single skull out as an embellishment.

Try as I might I couldn’t find a sentiment to match so I made my own!  I had included it here in both JPG and PNG format and you are welcome to download it if you can use it.

Please do not claim them as your own and give credit back to me if you do use them. I would appreciate it you would let me know if you do as I would love to pop over and see your creation.
