Before we get too far here, I have to tell you I'm in FL working on an unfamiliar computer that doesn't want to let me link in my post. I will correct this problem when I get home later on Monday, but for now, it is what it is. (All fixed so be sure to click the links) So sorry I missed last week's Macabre Monday challenge. I must say the rest of the DT outdid themselves, but I'm up and running with this week's Chic Freaks Challenge sponsored by one of my FAVE rubber stamp companies, Stampotique. Stampotique has some of the most talented designers in the business and my personal faves are the creepy quirky images by Daniel Torrente and Jill Penney. This happy dude is a combination of Mervyn's face on Dweeze's body.
I've stamped him on purple card stock and left him uncolored. I made my own DP using Tim Holtz's method of swiping Distress Ink (in Dusty Concord, Milled Lavender, and Black Soot) on a craft sheet, spritzing it and wiping my paper in the concoction. Once dry, I stamped 3 Smiles over and over for the pattern. (LOVE it!)
I fussy cut Mervyn, added a black border mat and popped him to make him stand out against the smily faces. The sentiment is computer generated, inked and matted as well. Chic? Well...but he sure is freaky, don'tcha think? The Minions really enjoyed working with these fab stamps from Stampotique so be sure and check out their fabulous inspiration. I know you'll want to join in this week as well for a chance to win a fab prize from Stampotique (BTW, the stamps are not all creepy, LOL), so check out Haunted Design House and play along.
