Dire Warning...

Ok, I'll admit it... this one is pretty creepy :)  I mean it must be... Poot (Eric) threatened to have me committed last night ;)  He kept muttering to the babies (four-legged with fur):  "mommy is psycho... "
muhuwah ahhh ahh ahh ahhhhhhhhhh


Talk about fabulous therapy.  I'm tellin' ya'... give me something to color & an edge distresser and I am happy :)  See?


And have you tried Copics on kraft cardstock... it is so yummy.  You get a completely different shade of color, and it's all muted.  Fan-tab-u-lous-ness, I'm just sayin'.  It's great for darker cards, so you don't end up with a stark white image panel.  Me likey... a lot.


Stamps:  Winter (Stampotique), sentiment (River City Rubberworks), skull (Bombshell)
Paper:  basic brown, scarlet, kraft cardstocks (TAC), Bazzill green
Other:  EK Success edger punch, Scor-bug, Crystal Lacquer
Copics:  0, YR04, YR18, R29, E57, V99, G21, G85, BG72, BG78, BV23


I added a bit-o-lacquer to his heart... couldn't get a good shot of it, so you'll have to trust me ;)  And I went a little Scor-bug happy, but the texture worked perfect, me thinks. 

What do you think... are you scared?  :)
