...it was about your Christmas, there was smoke... and fire!



It’s challenge time over at PunkyouGirl with Creepmas as the theme and my card features an awesome image from BB Kakes via Stitchy Bear, Skulldiva.


To make up my card I’ve followed the current sketch over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2, which was awesome for being able to layer, which I love to do.  The twist was to add buttons or bows, which also fit well as it allowed me to echo the bows with skull centres from Skulldiva’s shoes in my embellies.  And don’t you just love the skullies I’ve used?  They are awesome as is the gorgeous Wendy, who made them especially for me.

With an image like this and a Creepmas theme I was feeling a bit steamy, Steampunky that is, which is the current theme over at Miriam’s Crafting.  So I raided my metal stash to see what I had and came up with Steampunk holly and berry to go with my skullies.  I’m no clay modeller like Wendy so I had to add in the Santa hat and holly and berry on my skullies using shrink film, problem is I’ve run out of the printable kind.  So I used clear and coloured it with Smooch, which ended up working really well on the Santa hat as it has a raised texture to it.

Over at A Creative Romance they are looking for you to use something old on your project.  The designer papers I’ve used are from the Kaisercraft Twig and Berry collection from way back in 2012 so I think they count.
