Macabre Monday HDH076 - Love bites!

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. Please make sure that your blog post / upload has been made AFTER the challenge date... we wanna see fresh stuff, not those from a few weeks ago!!
3. If you upload to any online galleries (TACPCC, S&S, PCP, SCS, etc.), please tag the title using HDH076.
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. We'll be selecting a weekly Gruesome Twosome (our 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:
Love Bites
You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based project with a distinctly anti-romantic theme. We know there are dozens and dozens of challenge blogs out there that are challenging you to create loved-up sweet pink goo, and we want you to give your dark side a chance to bite back! Forbidden love, twisted desires, passionate revenge. Let your inner demon out and bludgeon that smug little cherub to death with his own arrows :P

We also have a sponsor this week, the fabulous Strange Skin, and the winner will get to choose 3 of their wonderfully creepy digis! I'm going to let them tell you about themselves in their own words:


"Strange Skin is a company run by, began by, and will one day be ended by, Pamela Bowman and Jorge Garcia. Until that fateful day comes, we provide very real and eager-to-be-purchased products to hypothetical potential customers. Such products include (but are not limited to): jewelry, t-shirts, toys, various other trinkets, and our newest product, digis! Oh hell yes! Though digis exist purely in the technological world of confusing neon green blips and bleeps, they can be made physical upon purchase with a simple print out. From then on the journey has begun! Do anything you want with our digis! Spruce up your ransom notes, or add a distinguished flourish to your morbid scrapbooks that once only contained yellowed newspaper clippings and victims' ears (not so hum-drum anymore, sucker)! Just one purchase gets you an unlimited supply you can use until your printer explodes or a virus deletes your backup files. But what am I saying? You know how these things work. We here at Strange Skin strain the thin membrane of our gray matter that dictates creativity in order to bring you the most unique, daring, and admittedly sometimes cliched digital illustrations for your anything-you-want-to-do-with-it-ing pleasure. We hope you enjoy our current line-up and check back in the very near future (later tonight) for even more incentive to question how much more you love being emailed some sweet-ass artwork over that lame stupid money that's just sitting there surviving this recession somehow. Halloween is our favorite time of the year and we believe our current and soon-forthcoming collections reflect that. We only hope our joy for that season spreads to you. After all, we are here to serve joy. And to serve you. Bone appetit! "- Strange Skin

Here's what the Minions have created for you this week, using some of the digis from our sponsor:

Macabre Mistress Lynx:



Creepy Cricut Cween Donna:






Smudgetastic Andrea:



Terrifically Terrifying Teri:




Digital Demon-ess Susan:



And now we want to see your creations! The linky tool will be added shortly, but if you've finished your piece before it's up and running, feel free to leave a link in the comments and we'll find you :D
