I have made a card for a GDT spot at The Mausoleum of The Dammed,sponsored by Lacy Sunshine and I was given the image Lucille,coloured with promarkers and cut into three.Now I struggle with "Dark" cards they always seem to turn out cuteified but tried my best lol,cardstock is from Papermill Direct,die-cut flowers/black rose trim/black tulle/buttons from stash,the die cut and stamped leaves are Sara signature dies from Crafters Companion the set was a craft mag freebie,paw print stamp from Visible Image.
I love promarkers-use a die-cut

I know just what you mean about dark cards, all of my embellishments make a card very girlie and I resort to cogs ... not exactly 'dark'. This is great Carol. I love your lace and the black flowers.

I too would struggle with Dark cards. The image is very cool though, it reminds me of some of the cartoons and dolls that my daughter likes.

You did a fabulous job on this card Carol, it is dark but the design, image and colouring are wonderful. Dark is not easy do! You did it (but I am not creeped out) :o)!
