When I saw Jade Dragonne’s Marie Antoinette image I knew that I wanted to color it!

Then, how to make it dark?  Cake!  Ok, but something fun…cupcake?  Card?  How to make a cupcake bloody?  I found a cupcake file in the Silhouette store and already had a blood border, so it was “just” a matter of merging them.  I decided to also do the candles in the same same paper to enhance the red/blood aspect.  Then the bottom seemed boring and an idea was hatched.  The final piece of the design was cutting her head off and making the neck area on both red.

At first glance this might not appear overly dark, but the layers of macabre are certainly there!  Let’s eat that bloody cupcake with a beheaded Marie.  YUCK?  Fun? Maybe!?!
