Macabre Monday 101: Kreepy Kids

There was no way I wasn’t going to play along with this week’s challenge over at Haunted Design House! It’s all about Kreepy Kids! And I’ve always said that Rhiannon is a demon. But…in this case, she’s more of a zombie. You may remember back in October THIS POST. Oh. That was a great one! And I am so obsessed with the photo I used in it, that I just needed to use it again. And I am quite sure you will see it pop up for more! Here’s the original picture.

Picture 198

Just on it’s own…it’s creepy…don’tcha think? Well…I took it to the next level via Picnik. Here’s what I did. Yeah…I did it! Me! All by myself! The photoshop-phobe did this! ;)

Zombi Rhi

Creep-tastic! If I do say so myself. There are a lot of folks that are totally creeped out by this picture. I happen to love it. The original and this zombie version. I even have the original sitting on my craft room desk.

Now obviously, since I already used this photo, I needed to make a new project for the HDH challenge. So I decided to put my little zombie girl into a frame that I altered.

Rhiannon is looking a little washed out here. But in real “life” (or death…as it were) she is as green as in the photo above. Yummy! So I used a plethora of stamps for this fame, and globs of glorious paint. All of my stamps are from Inkadinkado (those little dollar ones you find in bins at the craft store), except for the red splatter stamps. That’s from Smeared Ink. I embossed them with a deep red to make ‘em shiny and goopy looking.

I had started off by painting my cheapo $1 frame with gray paint. Then I smeared on some Peeled Paint Distress Ink. A few spritzes of Candy Apple Red Glimmer Mist, and then I went to town with my stamps. I get so caught up in making cards, that I forget sometimes how much I absolutely adore altering things like frames and boxes. I really need to try to make more, because I have such a blast.

Seriously, how great are all of those stamps?! I am so glad I nabbed ‘em when I did!

And let me not forget to mention the bit of altering I did to the photo itself after I printed it. For some dumb reason, I didn’t print it as a full 4x6 photo. And I didn’t want to give it a traditional mat. So I decided to go in with my alcohol inks and blob away at the fugly white edge. Then, I stamped a fantastic stitched border to 2 sides. Voila! Stoopid white is gone. Scary-ass Rhi takes center stage.

I hope you liked my little project! And my little girl zombie! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Hop

This is a very exciting week for the Stampendous team! We are hanging out with the ultra cool Deco Art Mixed Media team, each using each other's products to share some incredible creations with you. These companies go hand in hand, so using each other's products is easy. And the results are amazing. We are of course featuring Andy Skinner's stamps, who is the DecoArt International Education Coordinator.  And yup, there are prizes! But I want you to go to the Stampendous Blog for all of that info. The link is at the bottom of the post. Now, on to my project. I made a cool wall hanging today. I started off with a piece of MDF and I drilled 2 holes, and covered it with DecoArt's white Gesso. After it dried, I used Andy's Alcohol and Media fluid Acrylics Layering Technique. You can check out his how-to video HERE . Needless to say, it's a great technique, and I loved doing it. Once I finished with the aforementioned technique, I sealed the piece w

Remembering Aletha

Greetings, Friends. This post today is part of a very special blog hop. We are celebrating the life of an amazingly talented artist and friend. The crafting community lost Aletha Jane Williams on May 5, 2019. Those of us that worked with her on Design Teams or on Challenge Blogs all agree that she was one of the sweetest and most talented women we knew. We are not here to mourn her loss though. This hop is happening in conjunction with a very special celebration of her life and her art that her husband Bob is holding in her home city of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Please join us in honoring our incredibly creative friend Aletha . My card features the "Remembering Aletha" Sprite, which Mitzi (owner and artist of Aurora Wings ) created specifically for this hop. She is generously giving the digi away to all, over on her blog. This sweet Sprite looks so much like Aletha, and I know she would have been honored. If you download this digi for yourself, please be sure to give a huge "
