AC - Naughty or Nice - 12 DOC ....

..... Hello and welcome to the 12 Days of Creepmas.  What's that, I can hear some of you ask?  Well, Creepmas is a friendly push back at the retail companies in America and the UK who decide that it's okay to put out Christmas decorations, presents, etc before Halloween has even finished!!!  So this is for those of us (and the number is increasing) who really enjoy our Halloween and quite like to play with Christmas too!  The 12 Days of Creepmas Blog Hop is run by Smeared Ink and there's a list of everyone playing along at the bottom of this post.  Do drop by and say Hi!

I have the great honour of being the first of Rick St Dennis's EDT to host our post at Airless Chambers.  I've made a very non-traditional Christmas card:

Naughty or Nice - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: Rick St Dennis Digi - Creepmas Costume; Dylusions - Christmas Words; Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz - Crazy Talk, Crazy Things
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Night of Navy, Bermuda Bay; Memento - Tuxedo Black
Dies: Spellbinders - Sm Deckled Mega Rectangles (S5-014) #4, Sm Mega Rectangles (S4-144) #4
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Gold Mirri Card; Copic Markers; Wink of Stella - Clear, Gold

I absolutely love this guy - I think he's very confused as to whether it's Halloween or Christmas.  I used the colours from this week's Cupcake Inspirations Challenge - CIC#338.  I found a new challenge yesterday, The Challenge - TC#53 - I don't know how I missed it, but I did.  This week the team would like a non-traditional Christmas Card - yep!!!

I printed the image on white card, coloured it with Copic markers, added some sparkle - gold and clear - to the Christmas ornaments, his crown and to the frills on his costume.  I layered the finished image on some gold mirri card and attached it to the card.  I found a sentiment that works with the image - he's not sure whether he's naughty or nice!!  On the inside I cut a mat layer of gold card and on the white panel added a pumpkin and Santa hat along with a message.
