'Madeline Usher' Cameo Necklace by Leigh S-B

Happy World Card Making Day Everyone!

 A few days ago I shared my 'Bride of Usher' art card and promised you a matching Necklace and here it is, I hope you like it ;0)  I should have shared the card today instead with it being World Card Making Day and all, silly me!

 If you're a fan of Tim Holtz Idea-ology goodies then you're going to love this project coz I used one of his tarnished gold Ornate Plates as the frame for my spooky miniature 'portrait painting' of
Madeline Usher!

I used the same Goth Girl stamp from  Blockheads Paper Arts exclusive Di's Characters rubber stamp collection as the focal point of my dark and twisty Cameo Necklace as well as the Script 'Backgrounds for All Occassions' stamp for the backing of this piece.  I had a spooktacular time designing this and the matching art card!

Pop on over to my blog, Leigh S-B Designs, to see the full tutotrial as well as two more 'looks' I created for this spooky antique piece!

Stacey hinted in her recent newsletter that a domino necklace might have been in the works for this project and I hate to disappoint so check out the Goth Girl DominoART Necklace I did make a while ago in case you missed seeing it ;0)
