12 Days of Creepmas: Day 2 and Bombshell Wacky Holiday

Welcome, welcome! It's Day 2 of the Smeared & Smudged 12 Days of Creepmas. Plus, over at Bombshell Stamps, we are celebrating the wacky holiday "Wear Brown Shoes Day." So I decided to combine the 2.

Basically, Wear Brown Shoes day is simply a day to dust off your underused brown shoes, and wear them! I told you it was wacky. I used a bunch of sets for this one little card. Bombshell Angel, Holiday Accessory, and 2 digi sets, Business Bombshell and Fun 'N Flirty dress up sets.

I colored my Bombshell with Copics and Spectrum Noirs. My background was done with a Tim Holtz clock stencil, inked with Gathered Twigs and Peeled Paint Distress Inks.

Please be sure to visit the Bombshell Blog for some more projects for this wacky holiday. And don't forget to wear your brown shoes tomorrow (which is the actual date of the holiday...aren't you glad I gave you advanced warning?)! And of course, there's that fabulous list of Jolly Bloggers, listed in my side bar. Say hi to all of those peeps too! Thanks for stopping by. Have a creeptastic day!


Erm...I have no brown shoes so I will be borrowing my husband's at least you will know what I'm up to if I get funny looks when out shopping. Lovely image you have used here, great colouring and stenciling.

Well, that is a holiday idea I can get behind! Love my brown shoes, especially boots.

She has holiday attitude and the green gives her a festive look.
