It is Wretched Wednesday!!
Are you ready to get your freak on?!
Now I can remember the very first time I set
my eyes upon a Daniel Torrente image.
I can distinctly recall thinking happily, that someone had
finally tapped into the alternative, unique, not so cute,
slightly creepy, vein of rubber stamps.
Stampotique is still one of my very favorite
stamp companies to this day, with Daniel's
images at the top of my must have list.
This week's sponsor for Macabre Monday
is none other than
The challenge is
I started off with the awesome and versatile Bat Like Wings stamp
and my favorite little bat buddy, Batboy.
I altered him a bit by chopping off his usual party hat
and adding those killer wings.
I used some die cuts and cool word art from Ginger's House.
Top it all off with some rhinestones, and voila!
He's chic and a freak!!
But I'm not done yet!
This is my new favorite image called simply,
I decided to do some clean and simple cards
using Distress inks to "color" the faces.
I went over the eyes and the smiles with VersaMark
and then clear embossed to keep them white.
Then I used TH Distress Inks in various colors and some
sponge daubers to blend the colors together.
I left them blank until I need them for a specific reason
or occassion. It's good to have blank cards on hand.
I had a blast (as usual) creating with the awesome stamps
