It's the SHITS, Gettin' Old! (Warning, some Profanity...DUH!)

It's my turn to post on Airless Chambers, the RSD MFA Dark Blog, so here's a little wall hanging I did using the fabulous HaunTed OUTHOUSE, just ONE of the amazing outhouses available in Rick's Zibbet ShopI've removed the background from Madama de la Noche in my printing program and added her to the steps. This idea came to me after repeating my mantra, more than several times this week, for one reason or another.  Yeah, it's the SHITS, gettin' old, alright!

Here's a closeup of the combined images, colored with Copics with a touch of Prismacolor pencils here and there.  I've added spiderweb die cuts (I always think of then when I pass an outhouse (don't you?  EEEK!!!), some epoxy bats and edged the banner with my trusty Drippy Goo punch. 

The TP roll is from a design by Marlene Shaw who had a wicked sense of humor and gave out freebie stamps for years, but sadly, no longer blogs.  I added my own sentiment to the roll.  The spider came from a an experience I had as a teen.  I traveled to Bermuda with a high school boyfriend's family to visit his oldest sister and brother-in-law.  Fabulous trip, except for the BUGS!  One day, I was in the bathroom and when I pulled out the TP, the biggest palmetto bug (think the most GIGANTIC COCK ROACH EVER) rolled out with the sheet and my scream was heard round the WORLD!  Okay, not a spider, but close enough. Actually, a spider might have been better, except the one's there are HUGE and all hairy and shit, EEEWWW!!! 

The language goes even further South from here, so if you're easily offended, better stop reading NOW!

I've been missing the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers a fuckton and am thrilled to join in their current challenge

And as much as I love a good F-Bomb (well, perhaps I already got that covered), gotta say this lovely banner did influence my project a tad. Ya think?
I'm also entering this in the Left of Center Use 3 of Something challenge, not only because I used 3 spiders, but also 'cause those chicks can take a few choice words, Forever Dark ATG, and Dream in Darkness ATG.


  1. Love that potty mouth IS awesome isn't it?
    I love so much about this card Donna, the TP, the skeleton, the bats and the cold hard fact that getting old is indeed the shits (she types squinting through her new glasses)

  2. Hahahaha Donna - this is just FABULOUS. Your usual awesome colouring and I must say that the whole image made me laugh :-D I totally agree about Outhouse scares but I reckon when you saw that bug, you didn't have to worry about going to the toilet any more did you coz I reckon you just did it straight away ??!!!! Bwaaahahahaha xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  3. It is good to see you back playing with us, Donna! And wow, that is one amazing wall hanging. Your colouring is awesome! Sadly, the sentiment is just all too true. And I really really don't want to think about bugs of any kind appearing out of the tp roll. :P
