Well hellloooooo folks!
Happy Sunday to ya. 1st of December today, yikes!! Better start thinking about Christmas stuff I suppose.Not that I haven't already, just been a bit 'alternative' instead.
I am taking part (for the first time) in a large blog hop event called the 12 Days of Creepmas, where we celebrate Christmas a bit differently, hence the creepmas bit in the title. If you want to take part, head to Terra's blog where you will find all the details, dates etc.
There is a large blog hop roll over there in the sidebar if anyone wants to play along and visit.
I recently bought myself a wee black tree to use as a Christmas Tree replacement. It's meant to be a Cherry Blossom Tree, but I decided to Goth it up a bit and paint all the little light covers. Here is a 'before' and 'after' shot:
Later on I will be added some 'schtuff' to it like baubles and tinsel...
Anyway, my 12 Days item today is this wee card I knocked up using a couple of my Delicious Doodles images, Gothic Church Window and Creepy Gargoyle:
The background here was done using inks and smudgy daubers. The black dauber went a bit scratchy, hence the swirly effect. I quite liked what happened there so I kept it instead of redoing it. Looked a bit creepy...sorry about the blurry pic below...
The holly and berries are done using a holly punch, and small circle punch. Gold card for the berries and black for the holly. Edged in gold metallic waxy stuff, and gold pen for the veins. Regular black pen for the berry 'ends'.
I added dimension using foam pads. Wanted the Gargoyle to appear as if he is climbing out from behind the window.
So there ya go folks. Day one done and dusted.
I'll be back on 3rd for the next installment.
Enjoy your hopping across the large blog list peeps!!
