Macabre Monday #031 - Perilous Princess

HDH Macabre Monday Rules:
1. Create a dark and macabre SOMETHING (card, scrap page, altered item, whatever) that follows the specific Macabre Monday challenge given. Cutesy is fine, but creepy is better :)
2. You have until the following Sunday night @ 5pm central time to post your creation and please leave a direct-link back here.
3. If you upload to any online galleries (TACPCC, S&S, PCP, SCS, etc.), please tag the title using HDH031.
4. Weekly giveaways!  Some weeks will be loaded with loot, others not-so-much... but the thrill is in the win, right?!  Some prizes shall be by random drawing, others hand picked... and I'm not telling you ahead of time :)
5. I'll be selecting a weekly Gruesome Twosome (my top two favorite creations) from all the players. At the end of every month these will be compiled and a Master of Macabre will be selected. He/she will be asked to be a guest blogger for the following month, if they so wish, and receive a little giftie from me... this could be stamp sets, handmade items, papers, halloweenie embellishments... you just never know.

Ok, my little pretties... your challenge this week:
Perilous Princess

 You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween page, project or card using images/sentiments of princesses.  Young or old, sweet or sinister... as long as she has got a dark twist!!

I was cleaning up my scrap pile and came across this stamped image hiding amongst the bits & pieces!  I had stamped her when I was doing THIS card.  Here she is in all of her glitteriness.

Stamps:  Gooseneck (Stampotique), Yield to the Princess (TAC)

Paper:  white UltraSmooth, basic black, & Bazzill cardstocks

Ink:  Palette Noir & Onyx VersaFine

Other:  Copic markers, EK Success edger punch, Diamond Stickles, Michael's ribbon, misc. gems

I LOVE how her eyes turned out!  That Copic blender is awesome :)  After coloring, I just placed a dot of the blender, and it forced the color to the outer edge... creepily wonderful effect.

I know you know that I'm a Torrente fan... and Gooseneck really is one of my faves!  However, I'm waiting on a new shipment... so be on the lookout for some more :)

So, are you all up for the challenge?! 
Let's see some pretty creepy little princesses!
