This inspiration came first from one of Teri's newer stamps, Disturbia, with it's giant pile of creepy characters. A good portion of the DD team also resides in the dungeon with me at HDH (imagine that!) so this reminded me of them. xx I printed this stamp 5 times so I could fussy cut the crew and add the dimension I so love. (Better pic of that later.) Fortunately, there was minimal coloring to do, just my usual fave combo of WG! and G21 for Zombie flesh, some more warm grays for shadowing, and a couple of other greens for the lovely snakes slithering about. After distressing the edges, I chose one of the digi papers from the Beastly Paper Pack (a total "must have").
When I saw this sentiment from Ginger's House I couldn't believe the luck! We're a tight knit bunch and this really fit the bill. Cut and matted with Spellbinders Labels One and inked with Distress. OOOH, notice the google eye? They're splattered throughout.
However, the hanging was a bit lob sided now with that large sentiment, so I looked to the papers of balance it out a bit. Ah yes, Teri's Pentagram did quite nicely.
This weekend, I went to the Scrapbook Expo in Santa Clara hoping to score, among other things, some more of the Melissa Frances hangers I so love. However, much to my dismay, they no longer make them in black. Bummer! Not that I can't paint the, but... Anyway, I bought a number of them and tried a few and this, a new style for me, looked the coolest. However, it needed something to darken it up a bit (besides a bit of Distress Ink). So on with the Ram's Skully (also from the DP). WooHoo!
But, of course, I just could leave it flat. Printed 5 times and fussy cut, here's the dimensional shot. By the end of this project my hand was in spasms!
And finally, the dimensional shot of my bunch of crazies. I considered naming them but didn't want to cause any more chaos. (But I'm the one middle left with her mouth open, big surprise.) Thanks for hanging in there with my longer than long post, but, as you can tell, I really, really, REALLY love this project.
So, if you haven't visited the new Delicious Darkness Challenge Blog, you're in for a treat. Go meet the team and check out the fabby makes and by all means, come play along.
I'll be adding it to the following dark themed blogs: Left of Center ATG, PYG August ATG Challenge, A Step in the Dark ATG. And the mainstream Oldie but Goodie Black and White Plus One (Green and my oldies are the google eye's that are so old, some of them have turned a bit cloudy.), All Crafts Anything but a Card Aug/Sept, and Anything But a Card Repeating Motifs.
