Dark Christmas at PunkyouGirl

Well, that's us a week into December and it's time for a new PunkyouGirl Dark Christmas themed challenge!

Now, PunkyouGirl is a 'Dark Themed' Challenge blog - think Goth, Emo, Horror, Fantasy, Steampunk, Grungy, Vampires etc - this is not an 'either/or' challenge - your entry must be dark themed AND fall in line with the additional monthly theme. So many participants last month didn't qualify for a prize and I hate to leave negativity when people have made an effort to enter the challenges!

So, anyway, this month is about Christmas - Black instead of White! - or perhaps Creepmas if you'd prefer! We have Delicious Doodles sponsoring us this month and they have released some amazing creepy Christmas themed images in the last few weeks but today I am using a 'classic'! Emo Christmas is my image and I have kept her dark and gothic looking with lots of black - lace, ribbon, pins and rolled roses. The papers I have used are from DoCrafts Gorjuss range - lots of dark reds, greens, blues and Gorjuss damask and lined patterns - I have used the burgandies with black pearlescent paper to mat.

It actually looks really bright in that sunlight but I promise its a darker card than it looks!
I hope you will join us this month and show us your dark Christmassy creations!
