HDH091 - E.M.O.

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 HDH091.

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 Barb... this could be stamp sets, handmade items, papers, halloweenie embellishments... you just never know.


Ok, macabre fans... your challenge this week:

"E.M.O."

You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based art piece 
using items that begin with an 'E', 'M' and an 'O'.
 For example:
E:  Emo image, Edge punch, Embellishments, Embossing, Eggplant, Ephemera, Eight
M:  Material, Medium, Mists, Matts, Metal, Magic, Magenta, Messy, Mesh, Maroon, Mint
O:  Orange, Oval, Old, Ornamental, Octagonal, Oblong, Obsidian (black), Overlay, Organza, Olive

You only have to have one of each of the letters represented in your piece.

This week is sponsored by Simply Betty Stamps!  SBS is all about "the quirk in you"... here's a little info from Betty:

"Hello, my name is Betty.... I can remember buying my very first rubber 
stamp, I thought I will never ever have a collectioin of these suckers 
as they are expensive!  Well... here I am 4500+ and my own designs 
(which I haven't counted yet)!  I love stamping, more than that I love 
fun, quirky and off beat stamps.  It was only natural I'd want to 
venture into do my own designs.  I started this little company about a 
year ago, wanting it to get it off the ground I decided to go with 
artists that knew what they were doing already while I figured out how 
to get my drawings not just my ideas and concepts out there.  So, soon 
you will all see more of Betty than just concepts done by my wonderful 
artists for Simply Betty Stamps.  I look forward to bring my art to 
life... or ink... and look forward to many more years bringing you that 
Simply Betty Image."
 
A little edgy, a little cute, and a lot of quirk, I think... if creepy-cute is your style, then SBS is right up your alley.  Oh, they have mainstream stuff too, but I know our HDH readers are looking for some Halloweenie goodness, and SBS has it:  can you say "zombies"?  Steampunks, teens, zombies, Emos... there is a bit of everything.

Betty is offering up THREE Emo rubber stamps to each of the Gruesome Twosome this week!!!   Winners will be able to choose from the following EMO lines:  Everyday, Valentines, Back 2 School, and Halloween.  Awesome prize, right?!  Thanks, Betty :)


Now let's see what the Minions have in store for you:


Sultana of the Sinister Lynx:
E:  Emerald green  M:  Masking technique  O:  Obsidian black
Dark and creepy with a touch of cute... LOVE it, Lynx! 


Creepy Cricut Cween Donna:
