HDH146 - Hiding in the Corners

For the Haunted Design House Challenge you are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based art piece
that is obviously adorned in the corners.
It doesn't matter if it's an ATC, a painting, or a 3D project.
It must have something lurking in or on it's corners.

 This week we are sponsored by Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps.

I used one of Teri's images from Delicious Doodles or Stichy Bear Stamps of a dark mermaid to make my very first ATC.  I don't really know much about them except you use a trading card size.  Glo made three using my images and they blew me away, so I defo wanted to have a go and it was so much fun.
I am going to be back with something using Ike's images.

I used some brown cardstock and painted it with dark blue watercolour then added Twinkling H2O.  I coloured Teri's image with watercolours and added some twinkling h2os to give it shimmer. I know it is a bit tame for HDH but I have lost my dark mojo of late and have to go hunting for it to creep myself up again.  Although the mermaid is sitting with skulls to be fair that isn't exactly fru fru.

Do try and find the time to play along our generous sponsors this week are offering up a $10 store credit to the winner.
