Ah yes, it's another Macabre Monday at Haunted Design House with a super fun challenge sponsored by Tiddly Inks (and you know I LOVE me some Tiddly Inks!). The challenge? It's Creepy Cute. Create a dark, Gothic or Halloween page using cute images, but on the darkside. Turn something adorable into something abominable...something delightful into something devious...something cute into something creepy. Or just grab one of TI's Gothic cute images and start coloring. So here is Portence. Her lovely frame suggested a pillow for eternal rest. Her spidery coffin is cut from the Happy Hauntings Cricut cartridge. I created a shaped card using Cricut Design Studio and I hid LOTS of contours to create the background which I glittered with blood red German glass glitter. (This stuff is made from real glass so it HURTS, trust me!)
Dear Portence has been altered a tad (to look dead) by masking her eyes while printing, her x'd out peepers added by ME! (Sorry Christy, couldn't be helped) She's colored with Copics ( her skin taking a slightly greenish hue around the edges) and she's covered in a black tulle shroud.
She's still quite lovely though, hence the sentiment "Death... becomes her". Or perhaps I should have said "Undeath" Bwahaha! Again I used the Cuttlebug Embossing Plus Fanciful Label with a computer generated sentiment and a single Prima blood red rose. The coffin door is embossed with the Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes folder and the viewing window is cut with a Nesties Deckle Rectangle.
Of course there's loads of dimension and the entire card does open at the side. Ready to play along? Of course you are! Rush to Haunted Design House for more of Creepy Cute inspiration by the Macabre Minions and creep up your own cuteness for a chance to win some Tiddly Inks of your very own! (You know you want to!)
