HDH048 - Wayward Words

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 HDH048.
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 and will 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:
Wayward Words

 You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween page, project or card using text/words as the MAIN focus.  Poetry, prose, riddle, rhyme, text, quotes or statements... as long as it's got a wicked or creepy edge, it works!


Check it!  Did I surprise you?!  I'm posting my challenge card on time!  And not only that... I've got some treats in store for you.  A few of the Macabre Minions will be strutting their stuff today... so be sure to scroll down and check them out!  I'm planning on introducing HDH's Sisterhood of the Sinister this week along with their bio's so please stay tuned!  If you can't wait that long, check their blog links in the sidebar :)


But first, we'll talk about this quick (in theory) and easy card I made.  I've had this fabulous quote stamp forever and have only used it a few times!  Mostly for backgrounds... not today!  Such beautiful words need to be up front!


Stamps:  quote (unknown), skull background (Mrs. O'Leary's)
Paper:  Bazill & black (TAC) cardstocks
Ink:  Onyx VersaFine, VersaMark, Noir Palette
Other:  Transcendence EP, Tim Holtz edge die, Scor-Bug, black rose trim (Am. Crafts), ribbon (Michaels), misc. gems


And now... for some additional eye candy-corn:

 Susan (Digital Demon)



Donna (Creepy Cricut Cween)

The rest of the Macabre Minions are busy {insert cracking whip sound here} and will be dazzling you soon!  Please pop by Susan's & Donna's blogs for additional info about their work shown here!
