Creepmas Hops and Smudgy Antics Weekly Challenge

I'm Lady B.  Welcome to my blog!
As most of you know, I am involved in three Creepmas hops at the moment.  All of the information about the Creepmas hops and prizes can be found in the links below and the full Blog Rolls for each hop are posted in my left sidebar.

The 13 Days of Creepmas, the Official Site (Day 10)

If you are following the Rick St. Dennis hop, your next stop is  Pauline's blog.  The RSD hop has prizes so be sure to check out Rick's  original blog  and his  "airless chambers blog" for details.  This hop goes live at Midnight PST. 

If you are following  The Official Creepmas hop, your next stop is  "Something Wicked this way Comes".

The Smeared and Smudged hop  resumes tomorrow the 11th at 9 am PST for Day 6.  If you are still hoping from yesterday,  your next stop is Carolyn.

Here is my offering for the hops:

Can you believe it?  I did a hand's on project.  
I know this isn't very creepy, but it is dark and anti-jolly.  I used a Rick St. Dennis, "Bah Humbug", and colored everything with copics and distress inks.  The only thing computer generated is the sentiment and my watermark. 

This one is easy as can be as the theme is "DISTRESS IT".

I embossed Smeared Ink's "Angel" from their "As Death" set. 
 I am lucky enough to own this set in rubber.  You can own it in rubber too if you join 
the Smeared Ink Rubber Club.  I used other miscellaneous stamps for accents.  For the color, I sprayed a bunch of Dylusion's Inks on the tag.  I also used Distress inks to paint the main image as well as to darken up the tag for a grungy look.  It's hard to tell, but I roughed up the edges with scissors as well.  There is some staz-on opaque white and metallic silver in the mix too.  Both projects turned out a bit dark.  I guess that is just the kind of mood I am in right now.

Go off to hop or get working on your distressed project to submit to Smudgy Antics.  You have until Saturday at midnight PST.
