Zombie Strippers are awesome!!!

I am alive, but still a bit "off". Okay a little more "off" than usual.
But I did manage to actually produce something for this week's HDH challenge.
Bare Bones - no bumpy embellishments or dimensional creations this week.
More along the lines of a clean and simple, but cleanliness is not
really in my repertoire.
I went with a tag this week, featuring an insane image from
Rick St. Dennis. I was inspired to create a tag after watching a Stamp-tember tutorial
by Tim Holtz. It was perfect for this "non-dimensional" challenge, and it gave me
a reason to use some new stamps and more of my unused Ranger products. 

Who doesn't need/love a Zombie Stripper image?!!!
Isn't she just wonderfully wretched?!
I have a few RSD digis from last years designs, but he has come out
with so many new and horribly twisted Hallowe'en themed images this season.
I picked up a few more, with plenty still on my wish list.
He is a fabulous artist and just recently had a DT call on his blog.
Congrats to our own Croms, for her recent DT spot!!!
Check out her blog see what she created to really wow Mister St. Dennis.
I intentionally left off the seam binding ribbon at the top
for this photo. I didn't want any real dimension at all on this tag.
Rules is rules!
I had fun using Distress Inks to create my tag background, and adding
lots of strange and awesome stamps that I have been collecting for years.
I love all of the (non dimensional) layers and overall dirtiness of it. 
There is still plenty of time to come up with something flat, but not boring,
for our Bare Bones challenge.
Deadline is Sunday the 9th, at 3PM CST.
I am blissfully up to my neck in custom orders for Hallowe'en
and even Xmas right now. I've done a couple Zombie wedding cake toppers (one was featured on, and I am currently working on a Zombie Batman and a
life-size Zombie hand for a cake topper. Not to mention brains, ghosts, bats
and candy corns!! If my posts are sparse, this is why.
It's a good thing.


  1. OMG this is absolutely out of this world!!! LOVE it

  2. I just bought a few of Rick's stamps myself but didn't see this beauty. Fabulous and I adore the background. Glad you're feeling a bit better. xxD

  3. OOOh, and congrats on all the comissions. Gotta go look for that wedding topper post on

  4. Your topper was the best BY FAR! and so reasonable, too. xxD

  5. What an interesting image! So creative on the bg and coloring. I am so glad you are getting sooo many orders - doesn't surprize me a bit - you are the Queen when it comes to Zombie stuff. I am going to go check out Croms stuff and the news post.

  6. Glad to see that your work is finally getting the recognition it deserves. Your tag is fabulous, love the background. Hope everything else starts to look up too. xx
