Smeared and Smudged 12 Days of Creepmas Day 1
It's here, it's here, The 12 Days of Creepmas sponsored by the Smeared and Smudged Forum and for the first time I'm a Jolly Blogger. You've seen my "Dark Side", most often with my DT posts for HDH, but I love to play on the Forum as well. Get ready for 12 Days of Creepmas fun offering the creepy cute, the cheeky, the gothic, the just plain creepy and the possibly the slightly gruesome, as it pertains to the holiday season. It's all in fun, so let's get started with Day #1. The Blog role is on my sidebar if you wish to hop along and see the fabulous projects from the rest of the Bloggers. For those who comment on each of the blogs all season long there's a fabulous prize to be had.
I thought I'd ease you in with a "creepy cute" image from Lacy Sunshine. This is Amelia, one of my faves from Lady Heather's Curiousities. She obviously has a bit of a split personality. The front of the card is half of the 6x6" square covered with skully digi paper from the unfortunately now defunct Crafty Chaos. The tombstone is a Cuttlebug die and I've added dark metal snowflakes from Recollections. The oval die is Spellbinders, split and popped with a glitter zig zag sticker down the middle.
Amelia is colored with Copics, fussy cut and popped, and I've added a Glo skull from my HDH DT sister Creepy Glo's Etsy shop (great Creepmas stuff to be had there) and a bat charm (with the ring clipped off) to her hand. "Naughty" and "Nice" is done with stickers from Studio 112.
Miraculously enough, I've finished the inside as well. Woohoo! The DP is Recollections (honest, it was from a last year's Christmas stack, if you're wondering about the color choice). The sentiment oval was placed directly beneath the one on the front and I repeated the "naughty" inside 'cause you know her true inclination. The acetate glitter snowflakes are from MAMBI with more metal ones on top and the fab skull and crossbones is from Tim Holtz. Sorry I'm sort of the wordy type but I can't promise I'll do any better. Now hop on to over to Violent Kittie (don'tcha just LOVE her name? Jezzie is SOOO jealous!) and see what Creepmas cheer she has in store for you.
I'm also entering this in the Lacy Sunshine Anything Goes Challenge, Simon Says Wednesday ATG, the Corrosive Happy Holidays Challenge the C.R.A.F.T. Use Metal/add a Charm Challenge, Drunken Stampers Metal challenge and Left of Center using the LOC theme.
