Day 4: 12 Days of Creepmas with Smeared & Smudged

Season's Greetings!

I'm embracing my darker side this year and participating in Smeared and Smudged forum's annual 12 Days of Creepmas blog hop as a Jolly Blogger!  Here's my card for today...a twist on how Santa waits for all the children to go to sleep before delivering all the presents ;0)

Santa Waits

Today is Smeared Ink Day which means we are challenged to use only Smeared Ink images in our creations!  So I used Smeared Inks' 'Thinker - As Death' image and created this Creepmas Santa card.  The image was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and coloured with Prismacolor pencils.  The sentiment was stamped with Rhubarb Stalk Memento ink.  The panel edges were distressed with Tim's distresser tool and edged with Fired Brick Distress ink.  I applied Snow marker puff paint to Skellie Santa's outfit and once dry activated the puff paint with a heat tool.  I then embossed an entire folded card with a snowflake embossing folder by Cuttlebug.  The card edges were distressed with the distresser tool and edged with Fired Brick Distress ink too.  Then wrapped red/white baker's twine around the front and poked 3 holes in the spine for the twine to thread through and finished with a bow.  The Skellie Santa panel was then adhered to the card with 3D glue dots.  I completed my story with a Dymo Buddy label maker and red tape and embellished my card with a holly sprig saved from a previous year's Christmas cake!
