Creepmas Day 4 ....

.... Hello!  We're on Day 4 of Smeared & Smudged 12 Days of Creepmas. I've another Creepmas/Christmas card for you today:

Stamps: Smeared Ink/Teri Sherman - Holly Sugar Skull; Winnie & Walter - Winter Wonderland
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black
Dies: Spellbinders - A2 Locking Loops (S5-175); Lil Inkers - Stitched Rectangles
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Kaisercraft DP - North Pole; Stampin' Up! Card - Real Red; Copic Markers; Wink of Stella - Clear; Glitter

I absolutely love the Mexican Day of the Dead sugar skulls - and I think Teri's Creepmas style sugar skull surrounded by holly leaves and pretty berries is just fabulous!  I printed the image on white card, coloured it with Copic markers, cut it out with a die and then added sparkle with my clear Wink of Stella brush and glitter.  I used my new WOS brush - so there's a bit more sparkle than I'd normally like!  I think the image is so beautiful that I decided to finish it off with a lovely frame.  I die cut this frame from some winter design paper and layered it on a red card base.  On the inside I cut a white panel, added some decoration and a greeting.  Here's a close up of the sugar skull with sparkle and glitter.  I'm submitting this to this week's Just Us Girls Challenge - JUGS270 where the word is SPARKLE.  I've got lots of sparkle on this card - it might be a bit left of centre, but it sure does sparkle!!  Hope you ladies like it.

I think that today I'm going to have to get some housework done - my ironing pile is getting bigger and bigger.  That's all for now - have a great day.  See you soon.

Nice theme! I'm glad you mentioned how it fits the holidays as I didn't get it on my own. I like the sparkle added with your WOS pen/brush!
