Atlantia- elegantly evil

Atlantia is a stunning and fairly mythical feeling image drawn by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD. Nothing evil about her. However, when I decided to work on the challenge for Macabre Monday this week "Elegantly Evil" I decided it would be much more fun to take a very non-evil, but elegant image and evil it up, so to speak.



First thing I did was color my tag with some various dye inks watered down and let it dry. I then stamped Atlantia with Momento Ink on the tag. I colored in her hair and dress lightly with color pencils. I used the red Spica glitter pen for the starfish in her hair. I stamped the webs and spiders around her. To finish it all off I used my Craft-T Metallic rub-ons to give it some darkness and a bit of shimmer- just a touch!

This is so awesome Alex! I would have never pictured her as being evil, but now I don't know if I will be able to picture her any other way! :)

Gorgeous tag! Love that she sort of looks like she'll soon be consumed by those spiders all around her. EEEK! Thanks for joining us for MM at HDH! xxD
