Bloody Valentine Blog hop 2012, day 2




Hello and welcome to day 2 of The Bloody Valentine Blog hop sponsored by Smeared and Smudged! You should have arrived here from Jennifer's blog.  If you get lost along the way, or just stumbled upon this hop by visiting my blog, the entire list of Hop members is on the left. I suggest you start at the beginning, you'd don't want to miss anything :)

I have 2 offerings to share today. :) First a creepy ATC


The digi Ghoul image is from IKE'S WORLD, and I used the brick wall stamp from LAYERS OF COLOR.  I printed the "Kiss Me" on transparency. I colored it all in markers by STAMPIN' UP. The arrow photo turn is by 7Gypsies, I used a medium black brad. the gems are by Martha Stewart for EK SUCCESS.

Next is a creepy candy stash holder:
 It is a paper mache Coffin, I painted it thickly with gesso, and made it lumpy. (except for the area where the lid would fit over) I painted it pink when it was dry, and then with tan and brown, and with a wet paper towel I dabbed at it to make it look like it was covered with dirt, as in an exhumed coffin. the textured heart is a homemade stamp someone gave me, that was cut from a flip-flop (cool tip there)
I then used a gold SHARPIE poster paint pen. (too liquidy now) to go along the top edge of the coffin lid, and to put a name on top. "B Luddy (Bloody) gone too soon"
 Here is the lid slightly raised so you can see the difference.
 The inside of the lid (inside the coffin is the same way.
