The Second Day of Creepmas 2014

Hello!  I'm Lady B and I'm last on the hop list.  You should have arrived here from Lisa's fabulous blog.  If not, or if you found my blog by accident and want to start at the top of the hop list, head on over to Terra's blog.  I have posted the entire hop list below in case anyone gets lost along the way.

Here is my contribution for Day 2 of the 12 Days of Creepmas hosted by Smeared and Smudged.  Click images to enlarge.

I made another Creepmas ornament for my Creepmas Tree.  I started with the "Sad Frosty" image which was drawn by Rick St. Dennis and is sold exclusively by Smeared Ink as an unmounted 8.5" x 11" deeply etched rubber set named "Dark Holidaze".  I stamped the image onto Copic X-Press-It card stock with Memento ink and coloured it with Copic markers.  I took a plain wooden ornament, carved by a family friend, and painted it with DecoArt Multi-Surface Satin acrylic paint in True Blue.  When dry, I applied DecoArt Weathered Wood crackle medium and allowed it to dry overnight.  Next I painted a coat of DecoArt Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic paint in Sky Blue.  My camera didn't pick up the crackle effect too well, but it looks great in person.  I sealed the ornament with DecoArt Decou-Page glue/sealer in matte and sprinkled glamour dust glitter over the wet surface.  Lastly, I applied my image to the ornament and adorned the ornament with some skull beads.

Thanks for stopping by!
