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.
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! ;)
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!
