HDH044 - Noxious Toxins

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 HDH044.
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:
Noxious Toxins

 You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween page, project or card using images & sentiments of a poisonous nature.   Arsenic bottles, killer ivy, venomous snakes, pollutants of nature...
... it's a toxic free-for-all.

Check it!  Another week of getting my card done on time :)
Oh, man... I probably just jinxed myself!


Is this not freakin' adorable?  I know... I REALLY like the dark & creepy, but I saw this image and had to have it.  I love the sweet & sinister look on her face :)  This image is huge... not much room for any extra schtuff.  I should have done a 5-1/2" square card... but that's out of my comfort zone :)


Stamps:  Perfect Poison (or is it Pretty Poison? -- Kraftin' Kimmie)
Paper:  Neenah white, TAC black & DCWV green cardstocks
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo
Other:  MS border punch, Crystal Lacquer, Offray & HL ribbons
Copics:  0, E000, E00, E11, V93, V95, V99, YG01, YG05, BV20, BV23


I added a little lacquer to the bottle, her eyes, & barrettes.  I know... ANOTHER dotty background... but it is totally in keeping with this image, no?!  Me loves it.

Ok.  Your turn.  Are y'all up for concocting a little sumpin' sumpin' for this week's challenge?
