Going Green with Haunted Design House (please avert your eyes if boobies offend you)

Our new monthly challenge at HDH begins this fine Macabre Monday with the theme of "Going Green".  This fabulous challenge is open to a few different interpretations as in use the color green predominantly in your project (zombie skin anyone?), "green with envy" or the eco-friendly choice to recycle something, all of course in a deliciously wicked or or macabre way.  I, being the overachiever that I am, (LOL, JK) chose all three.  I immediately thought of the "Trophy Beauty" stamp from Smeared Ink, and came up with the sentiment after pairing it with my new Tim Holtz Trophy Antlers die.  "Green with Envy" down...

Trophy Beauty was colored with Copics being sure to add a bit of lime green to her complexion (it's gotten a bit humid in that bell jar and he was so anxious to display his prize he cut a few corners in the preserving process.  She seems to be putrifying just a tad). There's your color green (along with the green wood grain boards on the wall),  Two down...And WAIT!

Those wall boards were cut from the DCWV Green Stack which is made from 70% recycled paper and EVEN BETTER, it's all backed with a cut up Priority Mailing envelope.  Yea ME!  Truly the Minions have outdone themselves with this challenge so be sure to check out HDH and the fabulous interpretations of the theme found there.  We can't wait to see what YOU create!

I'm also entering this in the Smudgy Antics ATG challenge and Left of Center using the LOC theme (or it's sort of monochrome, well, maybe not).
