Luna Bitterfrost Fallen Angel

I created this project for the new challenge at LMM which is to create a tag, challenge #123.  I've used Luna Bitterfrost Fallen Angel and paired her with the Marine Creek Door metal die.  Then I also added some other diecuts (Bats and Skull & Bones) and create a Halloween themed card.

I thought that a Halloween project doesn't have to be all orange and black so it was fun to add some yellow and teal into mix.  The metal die I used for the tag was a random choice, but now that I look at it, it looks like a tomb stone.  That was a lucky pick!  LOL



Carefree Elise

This is Carefree Elise from Make it Crafty, but maybe you don't recognize her. You don't?  LOL.  I used some Creative Color Placement and took up Zoe's Zombie Challenge.  Happy Halloween! 


I made lots of transformations but first sketched it out on a second image.  Not all my ideas made it to the final project but that's the way of things.  Here are a few things I did:  Her face was scratched by some beast and ripped her nose off and part of her chin.  She probably fed them to her pets or nibbled on it herself and this new look makes things easier to smell anyway.  I'm sure that her brains have been eaten and that's where the snake are living - so she uses the hat to keep them from falling out. 


Her skin is suppose to be a rotting green with some bruising.  I'm not sure that worked out but I think it's putrid enough to pass as a Zombie.  Regardless, it's rotting enough that she's started using bandage wraps to keep herself together.  The bugs crawling around and the barbed wire were elements that I included to add to the creepy theme.  I wasn't sure what to do with her eyes so I went with a bright green for a spot of color that would lure your attention. 


The image was colored with Copics on printer paper; plus I used a pencil on the bandage to add the hash texture.  This is a digital stamp that I printed out at 90% lightness, but however light I put it, there are always residual printer dots.  On the real life project, these aren't as pronounced as what I see in my photos. Hopefully you can see past that and enjoy the image.  Well, enjoy it as much as you could a Zombie image.  LOL

Shirley

I have another felting project to share.  This one is reminiscent of Shirley from Shaun the Sheep. I love watching stop motion clay movies - it's always incredible what they can do and the amount of time it takes to make them.  Anyway, this idea is from some wool balls that I found on Amazon and thought it would be easy to CASE it.  So I convert one of my Mom's wool balls so she would have a friend to do laundry with. I didn't take a picture, but I added a small tail on the other side.

Sugar 'n Spice Dolls Sugar as Swan Princess

Purple isn't generally a color I reach for, so when it came time to put this colored image on a project, I had to borrow, beg and steel some purple paper from my mom.  LOL  Luckily she had plenty to share with me and I was able to complete this project. I always set out to buy purple paper for my own stash but somehow I seem to miss it on the shelves.  Maybe the next shopping journey will be productive in my purple hunt.  Hmmm ... maybe if I vow to create a purple people eater monster that would do the trick? 

On this project, I used Sugar 'n Spice Dolls Sugar as Swan Princess from Little Miss Muffet Stamps and paired her with the Over the Rainbow chipboard sentiment from Make it Crafty.

Thanks for dropping by!  There is still one more day in the Anything Goes challenge at LMM - pop on over and add a project so show off.
