"Lady of the Lake" 3D Paper Art introducing Dark Attic Challenges!

Howzit Everyone!
There's a new challenge blog called Dark Attic Challenges in blogland geared specifically towards the darker side of art and our first challenge starts today!  Dark Attic challenges will always be Anything Goes as long as your projects are of a creepy, dark, alternative nature and will always start on the LAST Tuesday of every month!  I'm thrilled to be a part of this new adventure as a member of a very talented design team!

  Our first challenge is sponsored by Delicious Doodles and Shadow Clocksey and my project today features a gorgeous digi called Vivienne Lady of the Lake by


I absolutely loved creating my Lillith and the Lillies project the last time I used a Delicious Doodle digi so I couldn't resist creating another 3D paper art piece with this image too!

Lilleth and the Lillies 3D paper art
 This 3D paper art piece consists of 3 layers of fussy cut hair, lily pads and the sword.  The finished piece is matted first on black cardstock then colour coordinating blue cardstock and then onto a final black mat.  The layers were all cut with my Perfect Layers tools

I started out by printing the Lady of the Lake digi onto Neenah solar white cardstock and coloured her with Copic markers with highlights added with a white gel pen once the entire piece was completed.  I scanned the coloured image into Photoshop CS6 and printed it out 3 times.  I selected all the elements I wanted to layer and fussy cut out all the pieces which were then adhered in place with a combination of Scotch Quick Dry adhesive and pop dots.  I layered the sword and hands to further enhance the effect that she's reaching out of the depths of the lake and offering it to you.

I completed my piece with 3D shimmery water droplets with a Viva Pearl pen in Magic Transparent White.  The collage photo below shows the layered areas in detail and the shimmery droplets, click on all the photos to enlarge them for a better look.

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you'll come and play in our Dark Attic Challenges!
Before you go I'd like to remind you that I now have 3 new Facebook Groups that you might like to check out if you're into Gothic art, all art genres ending in "-punk" and Egyptian inspired art!
