Creepmas: Day 6 and a Wicked Winged ATC

Creepmas is in full swing now!
I've started to find my groove and now I'm almost an entire day ahead 
of my Creepmas projects. Almost.

Today I made a tag.
I have only made a few tags so far, but I really enjoy making them.
It gives me a chance to play with my Distress Inks and a squirt bottle.
I like making the backgrounds for my tags that way. 

I used Rick St. Dennis' "Creepmas Girl" image.
Ya gotta love a creepy chick with antlers! 

For the background, I crumpled the tag, ran various distress inks over the high spots, and used sponge daubers to blend in some other colors. 
I spritzed the tag with some pearlized mist, and then stamped the 
"Let it snow" sentiment randomly. 
Popped on a couple of snowflake die cuts and ta-dah!!!

Next up is Aletha for the RSD hop.
The link for the 13 Days of Creepmas hop is on my sidebar.  

 I got so wrapped up in my Creepmas projects,
I forgot to share my Wicked Wednesday ATC with you!

This week's theme is "Wing it" and our sponsor is Stampotique.
I missed the bus when it came time to order my sponsored DT image from Stampotiquebut that's okay, I had a few (or 20+) of my own to choose from.   

"Daniel's Tree Topper" is one of my newest stamps from the incredibly talented, Daniel Torrente
He originally comes holding a heart, but I wanted to mix it up a bit
and added the skull from the pumpkin cube. I love his lazy eyes!!
I added some dots of color (and Sakura Clear Star gelly roll pen) to give some interest and sparkle to the background.
I am entering this ATC in the Guest DT call for next year at Stampotique.
Fingers crossed..... 

Join us at Wicked Wednesday ATC challenge this week! 
Play along and you could win a $30 gift certificate to Stampotique Originals!!

  3. LOVE the background you created for that fabby Creepmas Girl. You're a whiz at tags, my dear. Please make more. And as for the ATC. Gotta have that angel, although we know with the shipping at Stampotique I won't have it 'til NEXT Creepmas. The addition of the skull is inspired.
