HDH043 - Truebie or Not Truebie

HDH Macabre Monday Rules:
1. Create a dark and macabre SOMETHING (card, scrap page, altered item, whatever) that follows the specific Macabre Monday challenge given. Cutesy is fine, but creepy is better :)
2. You have until the following Sunday night @ 5pm central time to post your creation and please leave a direct-link back here.
3. If you upload to any online galleries (TACPCC, S&S, PCP, SCS, etc.), please tag the title using HDH043.
4. Weekly giveaways!  Some weeks will be loaded with loot, others not-so-much... but the thrill is in the win, right?!  Some prizes shall be by random drawing, others hand picked... and I'm not telling you ahead of time :)
5. I'll be selecting a weekly Gruesome Twosome (my top two favorite creations) from all the players. At the end of every month these will be compiled and a Master of Macabre will be selected. He/she will be asked to be a guest blogger for the following month, if they so wish, and receive a little giftie from me... this could be stamp sets, handmade items, papers, halloweenie embellishments... you just never know.

Ok, my little pretties... your challenge this week:
Truebie or Not Truebie

 THAT is the question.  You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween page, project or card using inspiration from the HBO series True Blood.   Don't watch the show?  Then simply watch a few of the series trailers & episodes HERE!  What will it be... the Eric/ Sookie/ Bill dynamic?  Or maybe the southern setting of Bons Temps, Louisiana inspires you.  Then again, there is the old standby:  vampires.


Here's my take on the challenge!  I know... A:  it's actually done & B:  it's done on time :)
Though I made the image into a vampire with khaki hair, it reminded me a bit of Sookie.  Wistful and dreamy... who exactly is she thinking of?  Bill or Eric?


Like the flower?  Yeah, another tissue paper one... kinda looks like a mum, doesn't it?  I inked it with violet & black Glimmer Mists.  It's wonderfully sparkly in person... subtle.


Stamps:  Dreaming Gothic Lady (Stamp It Crazy), Label Lingo (TAC hostess set)
Paper:  white ultrasmooth, black (TAC) & Bazzil cardstocks
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo, Glimmer Mist
Other:  Amelia ribbon (TAC), Scor-Bug, tissue paper, red Stardust gel pen
Copics:  0, BV0000, BV20, YG03, YG91, V95, G24, YR23


Your turn for a little True Blood!  I know there must be a couple of Truebies that follow this blog... if not, maybe we'll create some ;)

Fabulous! That stamp is awesome, and your "mum" is gorgeous!

Suzanne said...

It's very lovely! Just curiousity but do you send these out to people? I know they'd 'get it' coming from you. I just can't imagine myself sending out a 'bloody' vampire card saying thinking of you! LOL!

WOW! Perfection BARB! I'm trying to catch up with True Blood, but season 1 ends on my On Demand TODAY! Better get movin'! xxD

I <3 the card! I've still yet to sink my fangs into this series... I'm waiting to borrow season 1 from a friend. Looks yummy though!

Carmen said...

ME! ME! I'm a Truebie! Oh wow what a challenge! I adore your card, I must go check out that image!

Carmen said...

Oh no! I should NOT have gone and looked at that stamp site. Need to go get me a cuppa and settle in for a proper look!

Fangtastic card, Barb! Love your interpretation of TB (the show, that is!) and that image is wickedly awesome! This would be the perfect card to send to Eric ;D

I am so inspired Barb! And ya know what that means! I'm gonna rock this challenge! I had to cancel HBO due to finances, but, I am contemplating getting it turned back on only for the season. I too, have a lustful eye for the one they call Eric.

Linda aka Oz said...

OMG, what a hoot! I don't want any of you to spoil this. I just finished season one thanks to netflix and have season two at the top of my que....
Hopefully season two will explain why you love Eric, cause I am not to impressed yet. Also, why the hell does Bill have to talk like Elvis??? What a turn-off... or maybe it is all the drugs they are pumping into me. I am thinking my hearts belongs to the dog right now... hehe. I will try to get a card done... cross my fingers. Oz

Creepy Glowbugg said...

No, Linda, Bill IS a walking, talking turn-off. I just don't see what Sookie sees in him, but Eric is tall, hott, and dangerous. Yummm!

DonnaMundinger said...

WooHoo! Wish I had time to do some more for this challenge. Poor DH may not get handmade Father's Day cards from the kitties if I don't get crackin'. xxD

Just found this site and love it. I am huge TrueBlood Fan (books and show) so I love all of the projects. Too bad I didn't find this in time to make something.
