Day 8 of the 12 Days of Creepmas: Creepmas Centerpiece

Hello! It's the 8th day of the Smeared & Smudged 12 Days of Creepmas. It's also my daughter's birthday! I cannot my little girl is 5 today! Today's project features a fang-tastic image from Delicious Doodles. Terri (owner and artist of DD) had a Facebook contest to name the image I used today. And I won! It's called Creepmas Centerpiece.

Isn't it rad? I colred the image with Spectrum Noir markers, and I used watercolor paints for my background.

I love the way Teri draws hands. When I colored in the candle, I knew I had to use my Martha Stewart Drippy Goo punch to mimic the dripping wax.

The other punch is from EK Success. Please be sure to visit the rest of the Jolly Bloggers, all listed in my side bar. And now....I leave you a photo of my and my lovely little girl, at a Steampunk Convention we went to last month. Happy Birthday, Rhiannon!

Thanks for stopping by. Have a creeptastic day!

An amazing image, I'm going to have a look at that site, you've had some fantastic images to work with. This is particularly gorgeous, love your colouring. It's so strange to find out that Martha Stewart knows the word goo. Happy Birthday to your beautiful daughter.
