New Dark Themed Dream in Darkness Challenge Announcement!!!

We are soooo excited and happy to announce our new challenge blog Dream in Darkness for all our dark, steampunk, goth, Halloween lovers, alternative artists out there to play!  We will start on May the 1st with our first challenge being sponsored by the fabulous Rick St. Dennis, who is offering some digis to the lucky first place winner!  We have a few rules so please read them; there aren't many just some guidelines that must be followed and the biggest rules is "no cuteness, please".  Not that we don't love all the fantastic challenges that have amazing cute projects it is just that many of our dark themed challenges have had to close and we need a place to play dark:)  So one major thing I want to point out is that this is a challenge for stampers, digis, mixed media, altered art, paintings, etc. just follow the dark theme and we are always "Anything Goes"!  We hope to give as many folks as possible a place to show their work, also we take 100% digital work!  So in anticipation of our first challenge I have made a canvas with Rick St. Dennis's "Zombie Love" that I was fortunate enough to win from him.  

This was made on a canvas with stenciling, texture paste, and some Cricut cuts  and painted with many layers of dark colors.  Also a couple rubber stamps and a little embossing.  Some doodling which I need work at desperately!  The image was colored with Chameleon pens, fussy cut, and glued to the dry canvas.  The photo gave me problems but maybe I can fix that before adding to the blog page.  And that was the making of some zombie love:)
We are going to be posting some projects leading up to the first day of the challenge so please follow the link below and check us out every day or so and see what our fabulous team has created for you!  And most of all get started on your dark don't have to wait for a theme always going to be "Anything Goes" so show us your dark side!! 
Thanks to everyone who has helped make this happen!  Kim Johnny is co-owner of this blog with me and she is one amazing person!  She thinks of things and has it done before I even begin to think of them.  We also have a Creative Team but we will be announcing them on the blog; we want to show them lots of love because we are so proud of them!  
Happy crafting and the link is below for Dream in Darkness dark themed Challenge starting May the 1st!
