Macabre Monday Freaker's Free For All!
Huh, you say? That's the Minion's term for "Anything Goes" (within the spirit of Haunted Design House, of course.) You know, sometimes that's even harder for me. I printed about a gazillion images and had the hardest time deciding what to use. I've been a bit ADD and the thought of coloring became a bit overwhelming today so I went the CAS route (so unusual for me) but LOVE how it turned out. I took our own Teri'sGothic Heart image from Delicious Doodles and sized it to fit the Love Hurts heart from the Tiddly Inks Basement that I'd printed in red. The sentiment is computer generated, the background embossing is the Tim Holtz Poison label and I've used MS border punches for the graveyard and drippy goo. Gothic heart was printed twice and fussy cut around the skull and then just the top half and popped for dimension atop the TI heart which was also popped. Cool, no coloring, just 4 square gems for the corners and that was it. Now aren't ya just dying to bring out your dark side? Hey, with no parameters...Woohoo! If you need more inspiration, go take a look at Haunted Design House and don't forget our Wretched Wednesday when the slackers (OOPS! I mean Glo and whomever else screwed around this weekend instead of completing their DT commitments) post their projects. They're always FAB with all that extra time they have and all. LOL Just teasing, guys. xx I'm also entering this in the Cardmadfairy's Digi Days Hearts Challenge, the Corrosive Challenge Love Bites, Sentimental Sundays Feel the Love Challenge, and of course, Delicious Doodles All Loved Up Challenge.
I'm so happy you came to visit and share in my crafting adventures. I hope in doing so you are inspired. I would love to hear your comments and I'm happy to share my designs for your personal use, but please do not submit them for contests or publication or copy them for any commercial venture.
I've always loved crafting, even as a little girl. My inspiration was my Daddy who was a wonderful artist and made beautiful 3-D Valentines for my teachers in grade school. Although I love all kinds of crafts I haven't had a real focus since abandoning counted cross stitch back in the 80's. Until I got my Cricut that is. Now I'm a blissfully retired card maker and papercrafter married 36 years to a wonderful guy with two furbabies, Goliath and Jezebel. Everyday I look forward to dreaming up designs and playing in my craft room. I invite you to share in my adventures.
