I Was Made for You…Macabre Monday #77

As many of you know, I try to play along with Macabre Monday over at Haunted Design House as often as I can. I squeezed in some time to create a card for their latest challenge…Dr. Death. We had to make something with a medical theme. I immediately thought of some of the rad images I have from Strange Skin. And this is what I came up with.

I used one of my absolute favorite images from them, the Bride of Frankenstein Cameo. I think she’s gorgeous. I colored her with colored pencils and my watercolor markers. Here’s a close up.

I accentuated the pieced together look by making her skin all different colors… like she really was made up from different creatures. She also has quite a weave going…lots of different colors. You can click on any of the pictures to get a close up.

The screw heads on the side are from Smeared Ink’s Urban Decay collection. Yup, the same ones I just used in Friday’s post! Screws are SO versatile!!! I hand wrote the senti, making it a little scratchy. The 3 pieces of cardstock sticking out from the image are actually a pewter foiled cardstock. Ultra reflective. I use it all the time because it’s amazing.

I have a bunch of great posts coming up this week, including a new challenge from the Desert Island’s Crafters Challenge, StampInsanity and a super special new release from Sweet November. Please be sure to check back! Have an inspiring day!!!
