Macabre Monday You Wood Do That Week 2

So here we go of week 2 of You Wood Do That at HDH.  We're looking for wood in your projects this time around.  I've taken a wooden plaque from the thrift store, painted it with black gesso, masked a moon, painted in white acrylic, dry brushed with black glitter paint.  The gnarly tree branch was found on my daily walk and glued to the plaque.  The stamps are both from Smeared Ink. Great Horned Owl from the Eyes in the Dark Set is feeling a bit peevish.  He seems to have ripped the heart from an unsuspecting victim with the head still attached.  YIKES!  The sentiment is an inside joke from the HDH dungeon.

I've printed the owl twice, colored him with Copics, fussy cut and popped for dimension.  His victim is the SI Open Bust  from the Gross Anatomy set.  Please visit HDH to see the wonderful work by my teamies and our special guest, Maureen Scott.  I promise not all the makes are this gruesome.  LOL

I'm entering this in the Smudgy Antics ATG challenge on the Smeared and Smudged Forum, the Recycle, Re-Purpose& Re-invent Fall/ Harvest/Halloween  challenge, the LOC Altered Art Challenge and Crafting by Designs Boo You Scared Me.


  1. Hehehe...Irritable Owl Syndrome. I'm not sure owls come in any other flavour! Love it!

  2. LOL! Now Donna, you know first rule of the dungeon.... is you don't talk about the dungeon. Or our inside jokes. Everyone will think we're crazier than shit house rats! Too late, huh? LOVE this! You really do have a morbid and deviant side to you. I love that about you. Very unsuspecting with your petite and proper disguise.

  3. Wow!! Amazing creation Donna. It's just fabulous and so much detail. Really really a great design. Thanks so much for sharing with us at Re-Cycle, Re-Use and Re-Invent. We sure hope you will join in our next challenge.

  6. Hi Donna, This is a gorgeous piece and the detail in your coloring on the owl is amazing. The drippy blood looks exceptional cool. I also got a kick out of your quote, it made me laugh. Also love that hunk of wood you found, it really makes the piece. Thank you for sharing this in our first challenge on Recycle, Re-Purpose & Re-Invent. Always a pleasure to see what you create and hope you will come back and join us often.
