On The Darker Side at Delicious Doodles.

Good morning! Happy Friday!! So glad it is almost the weekend!! Woot!!!  I'm really looking forward to crafting this weekend!! Bailey has her 2nd Lacrosse game tomorrow morning... I think it starts at 8 am; she has to be there at 7:15 am. I laughed at her.. she doesn't get up early... for me.. thats late!! LOL I'm an early bird! That is because I'm at work at 6 am! I like to miss the traffic.. its fantastic coming in early and going home at 3 pm! I miss the traffic both ways!!

Today we are beginning Challenge #107 which is On The Darker Side over at Delicious Doodles. Since I am trying to work on Christmas cards every chance I get :)  I did another Creepy Christmas Card! LOL  Merry Creepmas.. here it is:

For this card I used Creepmas Centerpiece which you can find at the Delicious Doodles Shop. I did a bit of decoupage on this image. the candle, the fingers and one of the berry skulls on the holly LOL I colored the image with my Copic Markers. I added two holly swirls from Cheery Lynn. The image was cut with a Spellbinders die. The frame was cut with the Cameo and the negative from that cut was used on the inside. I did one line of stitching down the image and around the edge of the frame. Last but not least I did some doodling around the image as well. I did add a bit of distressing on the black patterned paper inside and out.

Copic Markers Used:
  • Bones: E40, E41
  • Holly Leaves: G94, G99
  • Flame: YR00, YR02, YR09
  • Candle: R22, R25, R35, R46

I had trouble deciding if this was a Christmas or Halloween card, lol. Wonderful design and I love the negative of the mistletoe and holly.
