This is a twofer day! This is my project for both The 12 Days of Christmas - Smeared & Smudged's day 9 and Simply Betty Challenge's Day 11. It is the cover for an photo album for my dd Becca who is indeed having a Skelly Tree this year. I used black chipboard cover with green and red cardstock, along with a scalloped metal book edge from 7 Gypsies. The lovely girl is Lola, one of Simply Betty Stamps' Christmas Emos which I colored with prismacolor pencils & markers. The skelly tree is one of the new Smeared & Smudged plates featuring the artwork of Misty Benson "Skelly Christmas", colored with various markers and embellished with skull & crossbones nail stickers, as well as some fun skulls I drew. The "plaque" stamp with the skull is from 7 Gypsies. I used a couple of candy canes & glittered tree buttons as well. I hope you like it!
Don't forget to visit the Jolly Bloggers on the list to the right. My apologies to those who've visited to find nothing new. Happy Holidays & Stamp on!
***Edited to Add*** Yes, you're correct Alex, it is an alcohol ink background (I'm not too swift at describing my process LOL) I started with a yellow-ish glossy paper and used Cranberry, Pesto and Eggplant Alcohol Inks. I could spend hours just playing with them. I wanted the background to look somewhat Nightmarish.
