Texturizing the Cure

today is day 6 of Kickstart your art over at the Smeared and Smudged blog...
and today's challenge is TEXTURE!
 
I combined it with my Musically Challenged challenge which is to be inspired by gothic music...either a song, or a music video...and when I thought of goth (and when I asked my husband) I thought of The Cure and the song Burn...so here is what I created...

my image is from Sweet Pea Stamps...Ching Chou Kuik's Fall Woods...and I colored her up with pencils, then glued her to my page, and wrote my lyrics on a baby wipe I cleaned up black paint with a while ago, it says "Every night I call your name, Every night I burn, Every night I fall again." I glued a piece of tissue paper over an already painted background, then added some black crackle paint on top of that.

I hope you have a chance to join us this time over at Musically Challenged, and get a chance to win some Sweet Pea goodies for yourself! And if your really into challenges and music you can email me about joining our DT!

Hauntingly beautiful, Kapree! the image is gorgeous and I love your textured background. Great idea using the (I was gonna say "used", but that sounded all kinds of wrong. LOL) baby wipe, too. xxD
