Hello! It’s a big day for me today! I get to share the first challenge with the brand new A Step in the Dark blog. It’s where creative meets creepy. I also have a new Wicked Wednesday challenge. Let’s start with the A Step in the Dark, shall we?
We are sponsored by Delicious Doodles, and the challenge is “Skulls.” I decided to work with Deadly Nightshade. I colored this stunner of an image with Spectrum Noir markers. Here’s a closer look.
I went with colors I don’t often use together. I don’t typically do citrus tones…so this was a challenge for me. Did you notice the leaves in my background? Those were made using a new die from Dreamweaver Stencils.
I am entering this card into the following challenge- Left of Center’s “Spring Fling.” http://leftofcenterchallenges.blogspot.co.uk/2014/04/challenge-30-spring-fling-with.html?m=1
Now…on to Wicked Wednesday.
The theme this week is “Tropical Colors,” and we are sponsored by Time for Tea. Again, not tones I use too often, but I thought adding the pretty shade of blue would be ok since the sky (or sea) can totally be this color in the tropics.
I colored the image with colored pencils, and the background was done with watercolors.
Please play along with one or both of these challenges! Get all the deets (plus check out more rad projects from the other DT members) on the A Step in the Dark Blog, and the Wicked Wednesday Blog. Thanks for stopping by, Have an inspiring day!

Hi Alison thankyou so much for your first project at our new challenge blog A step in the darkness. Your card is beautifully coloured and love how you have created it.
Hello Teamie 🙂
Both makes are brilliant. I love your colour choices in the Delicious Darkness make. The whole look of the card is natural and rustic and it's finished off perfectly.
