Macabre Monday 74: Angels and Demons

Haunted Design House…how I love thee…let me count the ways… Maybe not. That would take waaaay too long! I haven’t been able to play along with the first few challenges of 2011, but I’ve got one today, and I am really happy with it! This week, you need to create something “using angelic products or images and creeping them out as only HDHers can!”

My project uses a smattering of different Smeared Ink images. May I say, that is one of the reasons I love Smeared Ink…their images all work so well together! Enjoy…

I started off with the Praise Angel, by coloring him in with Twinkle H20’s. Cut him out…then went to town on my background. I was immediately inspired by the Confined Space stamp from Urban Decay…and thought it would work really well with the church from Holy City. Added some crows (holy City…made ‘em grey so that they sorta looked like doves flying up towards the heavens), other textures from Urban Decay…ink…chalk…done! The entire background is stamped directly on the card itself. The only added piece of paper is the Angel. Sweet!

See how he shimmers? Gotta love those Twinkles! I really need to add more colors to my collection! I pop dotted the Angel too, so he really stood out.

You can click on any of the pictures to see them bigger. I don’t know about you…but I kinda feel bad for this guy…looks like he really wants to get in! I wonder what he did that was so wrong…

Glad you got to join in this week Alison.
You know i love these stamps too... and you have done an A#1 job of stamping directly to your card.... i find this beautiful, but disturbing... i think its the wire netting... it gives me the impression of decay, and ruin... or am i just in one of my deep inner meaning moods?
Thanks for playing along at HDH...LOVE ALWAYS lynx
