Return to the Dark Side

It has been quite a while since I made a card just because I wanted to make one.  And even longer since I made one a bit dark.  My sister told me there was a Gothic challenge going on at Craft Your Passion and I have been wanting to use this image for a while.  I got the image from Delicious Doodles and it is called Goth Guy.  It reminds me of Laurent from Twilight.  My background papers are from The Immortal Love collection by DCWV.  I don't know if you can see it very well but I also used my MS Drippy Goo punch around the image.  

Even though this is a simple layout, I really like the way it came out.  I usually spend at least an hour and a half coloring my image.  The artist drew tons of shading already which made it go a lot faster. I cut the image and popped it up on SU dimensionals. I hope you all like it.

I am entering into these challenges:

Craft Your Passion - Gone Gothic
Simon Says Stamp - Layered
Party Time Tuesday #76 - Let's get punchy?
Joyful Stamper - Anything goes
The Poodles Parlour - Use a digi stamp
Stampalot - What's your crafty passion?
That Craft Place - Anything goes

Thanks for stopping by.

The image itself I don't care for. I'm not into all the creepy stuff. There are elements, though, that are magnificent. The coloring on the jacket - wow. Your choice of papers for the background - perfect. The face and hand skin coloring - amazing. Your talent and creativity just blows me away.
