Party like it's 1816...

Well...that's the year Mary Shelley and friends were partying hard and creating the Gothic images we have grown to love...
meet Frankinella from the wonderful Ike's Art (who does regular freebies on her challenge blog)
The image printed out wonderfully as an A4 image
(yes I has a new printer squeee...)
 and then I started having fun colouring her with alcohol markers...
 mixing and matching skin tones...
 and creating a velvety look for her tattered gown.
 Her hair, a hint of a streak of party pink lol.
 Keeping the colour palette simple can prove very effective
and lets detail show through.
 Now to mount her....
 I had an old canvas board I wanted to reuse, whose painted background was just right.
I used a layer of black tissue to obscure the original centre piece. 
I don't bother trying to cut out the landlocked pieces...just use your markers to colour match to the background.
 Now to add a title.
Had to be "Mass Scar ade"(because I has a warped sense of the macabre)
 and the addition of a mask to finish.

I am entering her for this weeks LOC challenge...which is to be as LOC as you like lol
and she is my FOURTH piece for the July Challenge at Dream of Darkness

Enjoy :D XXX
