May 1, 2015, Dream in Darkness NEW Dark Challenge Blog Launch Today!

Today we launch our very first Challenge at our new DARK Challenge blog, Dream in Darkness! This is intended as a new dark playground, where it is always Halloween and all things creepy.

We welcome all media and the theme is always Anything Goes. The creepier the better, just about the only thing we will turn away is cute, there are plenty of places to share cute. So come join us, indulge your darker side! The challenge runs the entire month.

Our fabulous first sponsor is Rick st Dennis! We are so happy and honored to have him onboard for our first challenge. We have a Creepster Feature page on the Dream in Darkness blog and you can read more about him, HERE

Rick generously provided some images to each of our Creative Team to play with. It would be awesome if you can make time to visit each of us :)

I was given this image, it is called "Rum Poison Bottle Label for Monique". I think is is a wicked reaper...

Click Mr. Reaper if you dare to see the canvas larger....

This is a digital hybrid canvas. I colored the image with Sharpies markers. Then I scanned it into my PC. All the layering was done using Photoshop Elements.  

The pocket watch images over the skulls and crossbones are by Marta van Eck at Mischief Circus, you can find them in her wildly fun kit, Cabinet of Curiosities.  Some of the background papers are by Shadowhouse Creations by Jerry, a fabulous artist who shares such wonderful images.

I am so excited it is finally May 1st and Dream in Darkness is Open :)  I really am looking forward to seeing what all of you will come up with and share!

The linky to link up is HERE at Dream in Darkness Challenge #1

Happy Hauntings,
