Darkside Challenge...Mannequin

Duck and cover won''t prevent the Leukemia that came from the Nuke Testing in Nevada. How many were infected? We'll never know. I made this ATC, the text says Mannequins before the blast. I was going to do one after, but they weren't available for pictures after the blast went off. They were annihilated!!! I then burned the edge of the ATC, now it smells like a pyromaniac lives in my house. I stamped the Duck and Cover with Versa Mark and heat embossed with Red Tinsel embossing powder. I had to wet the paper to put out the fire...This DCWV paper burns real well. I like the effect that wetting the image gave, it smudged it around the edges slightly. I had to light candles to get the fire smell out of my house. What we do for art...


  1. Lol Kristen i am laughing at you with trying to burn the house down hehe. Have you ever tried lemon juice burning on your work ? I find that works well and doesnt smell as bad.
    Great idea for darkside challenge and as alway you use your imagination t great effect
