Hello! I hope my US friends had a joyful Thanksgiving, and for those overseas, a lovely week! I was quite inspired by this week’s Macabre Monday, as usual…and I came up with an idea that I thought was pretty damn funny!
As soon as I saw the challenge, I knew what I wanted to do. So I quickly printed out Freddy, one of Strange Skin’s freakin’ amazing images. Then he sat there for a couple of days… Hey! I was sick! Anywho…I finally got to color him in, and I removed his hat and the souls that are usually flying around him…just go to Strange Skin to see what I mean! I made his sweater have a real holiday feel by using traditional red and green, added some sprigs of holly, and of course, that ridiculous foam Santa Hat that I jacked from my kids (Just kidding. I asked them politely first if I could have it. No. Really!)
Isn’t he festive??? Then of course, I needed to add those fabulous “claw” marks from Smeared Ink, plus some wonderful smudges of Fired Brick Distress Ink.
I wrote “Santa Claws” all scratchy-like and, as per my sister Pam’s suggestion, I added some Gold Stickles to the letters for some extra holiday cheer. I thought about adding some to my 3 layers of drippy blood at the top, but I thought that was…well…overkill.
I hope I gave you a good laugh with my card! Now I just need to figure out which unsuspecting friend will receive it! If you ask me nice enough…it could be you!!! Now, sing it with me…”1, 2, Freddy’s coming for you…..”
