Left Of Center and Smudgy Antics Challenges

I was not sure if I would make the closing time on the Left Of Center Creative Challenges blog, but Yes (!), it does not close for another day.  And I am also in time to get one more in on the Smudgy Antics blog, {sigh}.

I had this image printed out and somewhat colored, then got side tracked with moving, Smudgefest, and   laundry...always laundry. it finished.

Left Of Center Challenge #11 - Creepmas in July or any LOC theme

Smudgy Antics - Use Fussy Cutting in project

There are so many wonderful entries and projects by the Design Teams in each challenge that if you got a minute you've got to check them out.

Even goth girls enjoy Christmas.  My gal is writing her wish list to Santa.  I have fussy cut her body, her head (2x), and her list (2x).  First picture is a straight on shot, and the second is one from the side so you can see the fussy cutting.

Details, Details

Digital Stamp is from Pur Imagination/Lacy Sunshine.  Click HERE for link, you may have to scroll down a bit, she is called Abby Love Letters.  Hard to see, but I used a fine tip black Sharpie to change the letter on her letter to Dear Santa.

I used a Blender Pen and Stampin' Up! inks to color her in.  An Aqua Painter was used around all sides with Basic Gray ink.

She is printed out on copy paper 4 times, then colored and fussy cut.
Layers are adhered with dimensionals.

Other stamps are from Stampin' Up! sets Christmas Lodge - greens, and More Merry Messages - sentiment.

The jewel and skull eyes is Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details.  Her dress filling also has Dazzling Details on it.

Feather is from Hobby Lobby.

I did use an Embossing Folder, Plenty Petals on the Basic Black card stock card base.

  4. Goth girls definitely enjoy Christmas. What other time of year can they hang their black stockings from their fanged-toothed skulls on the mantelpiece? I love the quilled raven pen the lass is using! Thanks for sharing your awesomeness with Smudgy antics :)
