HDH137 - Perplexing Pigment Play

This week at Haunted Design House, we have a Bugaboo as a sponsor and they have most generously offered up 7 digis to the winner.  They have a challenge blog too which I never knew about but am defo going to check it out which is here.

The challenge is called perplexing pigment play and you are to use the colours, black, teal, purple, and lime green.  Basically, anything goes as long as you use the prescribed color palletand make it creepy (cute) in nature.

My hubby is always saying that I bruise like a peach as there is not a day goes by without me getting at least three bruises or cuts!  I am such a clutz, no table or door handle is safe with me around.  So I chose to make my card about bruises seeing as it is perplexing pigment play.

The image I am using is Skelekinz Wings.

I made a keychain with shrink plastic:

I made a card using the colours from the challenge.  I used one three of those inks with the shiny stuff in it (duh) with the chosen colours of the challenge.

I drew the peach with a little worm popping out and hand stamped a bit of rymans card stock and rubbed some purple ink over it with a sponge.

Bruises? Don't tell me about bruises! Some of them remind me of very proud moments like catching a disk during an Ultimate match, but some remind me of the clumsy moments in my life - why can't we build furniture with a non-bruising surface?
Your keychain is so cute. Shrink plastic is definitely on my list of things I have to try!
I'm also a person who gets burns and cuts very easily but I managed to stay unharmed yesterday while baking my vampire cupcakes. They taste even better than I imagined. Thanks a lot for placing this thought into my head.

Very cool sentiment and I love the extra peach - it all works so well with the image and papers. Wonderrul keychain too - I am going to have to attempt something like that soon.
