12 Days of Christmas...the Smeared and Smudged way...day 6


Remember the Zombie scene I created for the 31 days of Halloween? Look closely...one of Santa's elves decked out the zombies for the holiday season.  What?  Just because zombies eat brains doesn't mean they can't have a little Christmas cheer.  Sometimes we all need a little help getting into the holiday spirit.  I know I do...as I am prone to the holiday blues myself.

The image used is from Strange Skin.  They have some awesome alternative digital stamps...monsters and zombies and stuff like that.  This was originally colored with copic markers and distress ink, uses DCWV paper from a photo stack, and mounted on generic black and white cardstock.  I added the santa hats with picnik.

Well, I kinda feel like just adding santa hats is cheating so I'll post another Christmas card I made.


This image is from Simply Betty Stamps.  Isn't she cute?  She is colored with copics, mounted on DCWV cardstock, and embellished with christmas light stickers, present stickers, and a stocking sticker.

OK...I can't leave you with ulta-cute...it might make your blood sugar soar.  Here's one more....

I don't remember if I posted this one previously or not.  Because Saturdays are my Smeared Ink DT posting days I figured it would only be right to end this post with an awesome Smeared Ink image.  This one is from the "As Death" rubber stamp set.  I applied three shades of distress ink directly to clay coated cardstock.  On top of that I stamped my image with black Staz-on ink.  Man...I love the smell of staz-on!  I colored a Santa's Hat from Kenny K and applied it to my creation and then mounted everything on multiple layers of DCWV cardstock.

If you like what you've seen today you should definitely check out Smeared Ink's forum....Smeared and Smudged!  It's an awesome place with a lot of diversity, inspiration, and just plain fun. The challenges are always great and you can win some awesome prizes!

Okay!  Now go and check out the work the other gals have created for you.  The hop list is on my sidebar.

Cheers!

  9. Love all three and the Santa hat connection. The zombies make me think of the song, "It was a Monster's Holiday". They just want a little lovin' from Santa, like we all do LOL. TFS. Paula
