Dilly Beans Non Traditional Christmas Colors Challenge


This is my second post of the day.  Please scroll down for the new Simply Steampunk Challenge.  Busy, busy Friday.  Our new challenge at Dilly Beans is Non-Traditional Christmas Colors.  Ummm...although the DT did some lovely pastels, I'm still in a Creepmas mode so...what can I say?  I've used one of my fave images, #161 Zombie Christmas Elf and colored him with Copics in shades of gray.  The plan was to use him as a topper for a bag of hard licorice "coal" but do you think I could find any? (Obviously not)  Had to improvise with torn paper and a bunch of Glossy Accents but it doesn't really show in the pic.  You can see it on the candy on his had and eyes, though.  Glued little jingle bells to his collar, too.  The sentiment is a combo of Alpha stickers and computer generation and the bottom black icicles (they be DEADLY!) are from an MS punch.  Please check out the Dilly Beans Challenge Blog for more fabulous inspiration.

I'm also entering this in the PunkYouGirl Black Christmas Challenge, the LOC Winter or Holidays, and 613 Avenue Create ATG or Gift Packaging Twist (planned on packaging but it was not meant to be.  LOL).
