The Digit-al Dozen Does: Fairy Tales - The Robber Bridegroom

I couldn't complete a week dedicated to Fairy Tales without a design celebrating the original Grimm tales.  If you didn't know this, the first printing the Grimm Brothers did was not about happy endings.  They were pretty gory and some were down right twisted!  I had to study them when I was getting my Masters degree. I really enjoyed them and felt it was necessary to include them.

My last design is inspired by The Robber Bridegroom.  If you don't know this story I suggest you head here to read it.  It is not a long story, so don't be afraid to check it out!


Underneath all that "blood" I have OH MY GOSH Baby Blue and some wedding images.

The wedding images are from Winstonia Store Wedding Bliss Plate and MoYou London Bridal 04.  I applied them using Essie No Place Like Chrome.  I added the blood using BM416 and Barry M Chilli.  I went back and added some more blood using a dotting tool.  I thought that I had some more pictures but when I was editing I only had these ones.  Not sure what I was thinking????
