Develish Nemi

I discoverd a new challengeblog this week at The Haunted Design House. The Macabre monday challenge! This weeks challenge is called "Oh you Devil". That's a fun one I think!

I have used this great image of Nemi. Nemi is a Norwgian cartoonfigure drawn by Lise Myrhre. Nemi is a blackdressed unemployed young girl, struggeling with the fact that she is growing up. She is hard on the outside but soft as it gets on the inside. She may look develish on this image, but show her a dragon and she will go all cuddely wubbely on you *LOL*

I love Nemi!

Since the MMSC has begun to give out sneak pea on their sketches I have got so much time, so I am entering twice this week. This card is also made after the MMSC #44 sketch. A bit differnt from my other entry ;o)

I did need something in the top left corner and I decided that 25 was just the rigth ting, no matter whos birthday it is - a woman never gets older then 25 ;o)

The coolest thing I did with this card, was that I embossed the Mulberry roses with distress embossing. There was a bit of smoke and some bad smell occured, but it looks great - right!

I printed the image on some glossy photopaper, torn the egdes and rubbed over it with some sandpaper. Then I gave it all a good rub with Vintage Photo distress ink.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

Hi~~First, thank you for stopping by my blog with a kind comment. I always love and appreciate that soo much! p.s. My b-day is July 4th...wink wink. ;)

Boy, did you put alot of work into this one! So many fabulous details. I love the way you did the flowers and sandpaper and ink distressing. You really achieved the look that you were going after here. Very creative and great job on the sketch. I always look forward to seeing what you are up to next. Can't wait to see your next MMSC entry.

Gunn I love how your style goes both ends of the spectrum--from soft, romantic, vintage to dark,grunge, macabre. You are so talented and I am intrigued with your alluring work. It is captivating and I find myself anticipating your card entry every week. So to get two is a super big treat!!! I have seen this challenge blog and have wanted to join myself as it is SO unique and interesting...but everything I have is "cutsey"...I forgot that I could actually print something to work with. I am going to try it once I get done school. I got a kick out of you burning your mulberry flowers!!!! Spectacular work my friend!!!! Thanks for playing again with us at Midnight Madness.

Bear Hugs,

Linda aka Oz said...

I so agree with the "25" bit.. and it is never really art until you have smoke and a bad smell! LOL

Thank you for introducing me to Nemi. I love a girl who knows dragons. the Oz
