Dark Love - Going Goth at Tiddly Inks!!!

 Hi ya everyone!
  This month at the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog we are celebrating our differences or just differences in general!!  So this week we are going Goth!!!  I always say I'm not really all that dark - but I LOVE how this card turned out!!!  I chose this adorable image from Tiddly Inks called You and Me. I colored them in my Copics.
 I also used this cool grungy ink stain that Christy created for a freebie (you can find it on the challenge blog).  I created my paper with a $1 studio G stamp - the first is a forever stamp.  The second is a skull stamp I used this on the maroon background.  I also inked the edges in black ink.  I added a bit of black lace ribbon down the side and I added a Love charm.
 I also added a quick strip of black flowers from an EK punch.  I added a few pearls to top it off...don't they look great in Goth??   Join our challenge - OH and the fabby Christy has two NEW fabulous image - Awww Thanks and Lillie Lolita!!!
Care about my Copics?
