Creepy Swamp House - Day 23

























This is done on a DVD card I got last year (or was it the year before?) from a Video store that was going out of business - these cards were what people looked through to decide what DVDs or videos to get. I painted over a few parts and added some stamping - the crackle stamp is a big cube from Stampendous, the fence from Seaside Stampin' Ink, the skeleton is from Invoke Arts. The barbed wire stamp is a Tim Holtz stamp and the little creature in the lagoon is an Edward Gorey stamp, the crow is unmounted and I'm not sure what company he is from. I had to add a bit of white Distress Marker and some black Sharpie marker to make things stand out. The card was slightly glossy and so it was a little hard to stamp on. And I added the red torn paper to balance the color. It's a creepy, swampy look – I hope you enjoy it.

Be sure to check out everyone else's work in the blog hop if you haven't already – there's loads of really awesome art for you to see! And thanks to everyone who has left comments on my site.... every one is very appreciated – especially to those who have been hanging in for the long haul!

Wow, Pam!! I've been wondering what to do with those fabulous cards you got and this just knocks it out of the park!! You are so creative and so proficient and fast in your creating that sometimes I completely miss the great detail of your work! Love it (in case you were wondering)!!
