The Enforcer in the Eyes of Lady B

Lady B here to share a piece that falls on the darker side of the crafting world. Today I'm hosting on "Airless Chambers" which is Rick St. Dennis MFA's "Darker" Blog.


Image: "SH Enforcer" by Rick St. Dennis MFA
Background: "Hotel Hell" By Crystal Rain
Digital Embellishments (skulls, knife, sickle): "Edgar Allan Poe" By Crystal Rain
Light Effects: PSE8

I first printed SH Enforcer onto Copic X-Press-it card then coloured him with Copic markers.  Next, I scanned the image to my pc, imported the image to PSE8 and removed the white background.  I then added the SH Enforcer into the eerie scene above.  He looked lonely in the empty room so I added a batch of skulls and two other random weapons he may enjoy using on his next victim(s).  Lastly, I added some lens glare light effects and added the sentiment "Fresh Heads Severed Daily".  
Yep.  Severed, not served.

Now for some other news:

Creepy Cute with Lady B

Lady B here with some digital inspiration.  My printer has been on the fritz and my Copic markers are in desperate need of refilling and cleaning so I've been doing mostly digital work until I get the rest of my crafting gear in order.  Pictured below is one of my latest creations.  Click on image to enlarge.


I have used a digital stamp by Rick St. Dennis MFA named "Zombie Jive".  Zombie Jive can also be purchased here in Rick's Etsy Shop.  I coloured this image before my copics ran out of ink then scanned the Zombie to my pc and removed the white paper background in PSE8.  I then added Zombie Jive to this creepy cool scene I created using elements and digital design paper by Crystal Rain which I purchased from "Mischief Circus".  

The room is one of the digital papers offered in Crystal Rain's "Abandoned PP".  All of the elements I've used (spider webs, skull and bones, black widow spider, black cat, bloody hand prints and blood splotches) came from Crystal Rain's "Edgar Allan Poe" digital kit which includes elements and papers.  Right now all of Crystal's stuff is discounted by 20% - 40% !
