June-bugs, gems and gewgaws

It's a new month, and that means it's time fro a new challenge over at the Haunted Design House blog. This month's theme is June-bugs, gems and gewgaws. So we'd like you to feature insects/bugs (moths, spiders and creep-crawlies are also ok), OR gems and jewels, OR gewgaws in your creations this month. (A gewgaw is something showy and flamboyant that has little or no intrinsic value but serves a decorative purpose.) Here's my piece.

Create your own fairytale!

Here's a piece I created for the first challenge at Dream in Darkness. The theme for May is Anything Goes and I've used The Dark Forest digital stamp by Delicious Doodles / Delicious Darkness / ArtiDoodles for the main background and created a scene with it using elements from Holliewood Studios (More Brains and Halloween Art Dolls 2), Rucola Designs (Fears and Phobias), Mr Whiskers (Fairy Tales), TumbleFish Studios (Wispy Pieces 1) and Mystical Scraps (Zombie Mummy).

Busy doing nothing

Here's what I've made today. The girl is by Xquizart (one of the Mulberry dolls), and everything in the bg came from the Misfit Dollhouse kits. all available at Mischief Circus. The original quote is by AA Milne, but I altered it very slightly to fit.

These are the challenges I made it for

I've used a free damask tile from openclipart to make both backing papers and also to paper-piece the raven. The raven stamp is by Ike's World.

Dance with death

Here's my latest creation, using a tube by EnaMorte and a quote by Kurt Vonnegut. Papers are by me - that mesh one is actually just joined-up Xs and I'm pretty pleased with it :)

These are the challenges I'd like to enter - 
Digitally Sweet Challenges - what's in your bag? My newest tote bag has a sugar skull on the outside in shades of blue and purple. And, LOL, the last thing that was inside it was tinned soup, which I guess also provides an "art" link :P

Silly hubby!

This piece came together really quite quickly, which is rare for me. Somehow, I didn't take hours to make the bg or to find exactly the right shade for the font or to pick which images to use out of the many, many in my collection. Yay for me, I love it when I end up happy with pieces quickly and don't spend literally hours and hours struggling with every decision. The woman is by Xquizart and the bike is by Marta van Eck.

These are the challenges I'd like to enter - 
Crafts 4 Eternity - #213 two. I've used two lines of text, two images and two colours (mulberry and gold)
