GC#73 Going Gothic with Gingersnap.
Back on the Gingersnap Creations crew after taking a six month break and what is the first theme? Gothic Elements! Excellent! :0) So I decided to run with the lighter side of the doom and gloom element of the Goth subculture and make this Batty Goth card using a selection of Stampotique stamps.
Here I used Mink, Batty (well I cut of his wings and attached them to Mink-
OUCH!!!), Swirl Stalks (I love using this stamp as its and excellent space filler), French Text and 'Batty About You'.
The crackle effect is obtained by applying Silver Croco Crackle onto card with the side of my finger :0). Nothing too technical! lol.
Gingersnap Creations would love to see contributions from you using any Gothic infuences. There are some fabulous takes on the theme from members of the Gingersnap DT so please take a look. Lots of time to have a think before the challenge closes and perfect timing ahead of Hallowe'en.
All stamps can be purchased from Stampotique in the USA or Happy Daze here in the UK.
