Still on the Dark Side

Another late post for Studio L3 Compendium of Curiosities Volume 2. It's time for challenge number 26 using Tim's Crumpled Kraft Suede technique. For full details, turn to page 40 of CC2. I'm still in halloween mode and have made a rather 'dark' valentine card as I was keen to use this heart stamp I bought sometime ago from Stampfrancisco. They have some really quirky stamp designs. I don't think this is quite finished  as I feel the flower isn't quite working for me. I may have to come back to it... or not as the case may be I think I am done with Halloween now. Still I really wanted to enter Linda's challenge as I missed the last one. This week's challenge is sponsored by the lovely people over at The Funkie Junkie Boutique with a $25 gift certificate. I am also entering this into The Fashionable Stamping Challenges where the theme is Halloween. They also have kind sponsor in  Marina at Cottage Crafts x.


  1. You do like cutting things fine, don't you Toni?! This is fantastic though - I love your anatomical heart, and gorgeous embossed background!

  2. I love the colours in this Toni. That heart is so unusual and it works really well with the beautiful background. Sometimes I have to mess around with the arrangement of the leaves to get flowers to 'work' - I think it is just the right colour for this little delight. Hugs, Buttons x

  3. Hi Toni

    Good to see you supporting us once again this time with a dark and menacing card. That stamp is amazing! It looks like a digital image, you coloured it to perfection.

  5. Hi Toni, What a fantastic image, love how its displayed on the embossed background!

  8. This is an unusual stamp Toni. Not sure it is one I would have chosen but love what you have done with it. Your card is gorgeous.
    Thanks for your visit. I haven't chosen what I will be buying yet....too many to choose from!
