Listen Up! Speak Up! Look Up! ATC Trio

Welcome back to Dream in Darkness!

Sorry I have been AWOL with projects, but I have an ATC trio to (hopefully) make up for it with!

What do you think?
(~and yea this is a bit of a shameless plug for my new stamps at Sin City Stamps >.< !!)

These new rubber stamps were made from original drawings by Rick St Dennis. I had asked Rick for a spin (darker) on the Hear No Evil trio... This is what he created!

Here is the DriBones krewe! Seen today starring in the Look Up, Speak Up and Listen Up story!

Bit closer!

Here is the stamp plate you can find at my shop HERE and shhhhh it's on sale for a few days, too!

So I hope you like this peek at these stamps and the ATCs. Are you inspired to play along with us? Still a few days to join in!

The Dream in Darkness Crew has some treats lined up for July, so hope you come back then.
In the last few days of June, come on and link up HERE, this month's winner gets a gift certificate to spend at Sin City Stamps!

Let's go!

Bete Noirs - the other side.

There are two sides to every tale.  At the start of the month, you saw this side:

Now for the other side - might Life get any "better"?
 In the centre, 
a troubled person sits, red-eyed from lack of sleep

Beneath her/him, memories of hopes, friends, whom Life has cut to pieces, made chutney of them and preserved the remains in his/her memory, for eternity to haunt him/her.

At the top, roll the Dice of Life's Price - an arm, a leg, or more?

The whole "picture":

Several layers of Seth Apter's Broken maze die were cut and glued together.  It's much easier (tidier) to paint the sides black before glueing the top diecut  layer on - made from kraft-tek stitched with varied tensions.  Painted background includes several of Seth's stencils, and stamps, bits of yarn knotted, bits of dyed guinea fowl feather.  The strip of stitched fabric goes round all the sides of the box canvas.  (Egyptian cotton sheet ripped, got recycled.)

Silver Crow Creations have all the different sized peopleskeleton, lenticular skullsspider web dresden, ants, laser-cut Bete Noir, and "nevermore" stamp.  You'll have to google for the body parts dice - I got some many years ago from I can't track where!  There's a tiny Teesha Moore stamp in there.  The "Brain empties" is actually part of a much longer phrase from Mad Rat.

How about sharing your nightmares here as part of our Challenge.

When all those Bete Noirs hit at once.

You can only run to Darkness to share your Dreams...
No matter how fast you run, you can't out-run your nightmares

Inside the box canvas, and with the hingeable chicken-wire threatening to let more beasties out to terrify you...  The laser-cut Bete Noir face on the outside has a threat on the inside too.  The skull heads are lenticular winkies - their look changes as you see them from different angles

Because the canvas was set onto (dice) feet, it can be turned around... But you'll have to pop in later this month to see more.
