Haunted Design House Wretched Wednesday

I bet you all were just sooo disappointed that there wasn't a Macabre Monday post from me, weren't you?  Well, I had a few too many things on my plate and wanted to do it justice because of the theme AND the fabulous sponsor so Creepy Glo gratiously allowed me to share her spotlight, this Wretched Wednesday, along with our fab guest Minion, Nancy.   WooHoo!  Our theme is Movie Madness and our sponsor is the fabulous Spesch Designer Stamps.  This was an absolute no brainer for me.  You know how much I LOVE Alice in Wonderland and I bought the whole collection as soon as these came out.  The winners of the coveted Gruesome Twosome with EACH receive 3 stamps of their choice from the vast selection at Spesch Stamps.  WooHoo!
I've used the Zombie Queen who seems thrilled to display the White Rabbit's severed head on her sceptre.  I've cropped it from Zombie Alice's little fist. Zombie Cheshire is there to clean up the remains.  I had a ball coloring these with my Copics, but didn't have a background chosen which proved to be a bit of a prob.  The sentiment begged for a "timely" theme and the lovely darkness of DCWV's Tattered Time was just the ticket.  I've added some blood via nail polish to the hands in the spirit of "time's up".  Yeah, I'd say so.  the sentiment letters were cut with the retired Curls and Swirls Cuttlebug Alphabet which is just PERFECT for the quirkiness of Wonderland, but it was really hard to get them to show up against the dark background.  Believe me, I tried many colors and finally had to go with the purple backed with the dark red which didn't show up on it's own. (Bummer!)  And of course, everything's better with Drippy Goo, so there you have it.  Be sure and check out my Sister Minions who managed to get it together on time HERE.

I was so thrilled that the Poison Peas challenge is back in business and there theme this time is "Unusual Alice" so of course I'm entering it there as well.  (I think this one's a little more fitting, don't you, Mark?)
