Left of Center Challenge - No Designer Paper Allowed!

It's new challenge time at Left of Center and this time we are sponsored by the awesome Rick St Denis.  The challenge is to either create something Left of Centre (Gothic, Steampunk, spooky etc - very appropriate for Friday 13th, don't you think?) and/or to use no designer paper in the creation.   I chose Dark Angel Sauvage for my project.  The background to this tag was one which I made for Tim Holtz's August tag (I made a few while I was in the groove, as it were!) and wasn't used.  However, it came into its own here.

The great thing about digital stamps is their flexibility - they can be any size your printer can handle and can be coloured in digitally as well.  That's what I've done here;  I used photo editing software to colour the image in (another advantage - any colour you want, you can have!)  Once it was all finished, I imported the image into my Silhouette Studio software and added a cut line (it was surprisingly easy!), printed the image and then cut it out with the Cameo.  I previously had a Craft Robo and could never get it to detect the registration marks that it needs to cut accurately - however, the Cammie did it first time. 

After that it was just a matter of assembling the tag. I do hope that you like it.

Why don't you hop over to LOC and see what the rest of the DT have been up to, and maybe join in the fun?
