"Killer Style" Doctor Who inspired Creepmas card for Smudgy Antics ;0)

Howzit Friends!
Our new Smudgy Antics challenge today is a "Colour Challenge"!  For the next 2 weeks we challenge you to create using at least three of these colours.  The Smeared Ink DT has provided lots of spooktacular inspiration and here's my DT piece for you to check out :0)  I used all 5 colours in my creation!

Just a quick reminder that I'm having a huge 31 Days of Halloween Scarefest right now over on my DominoART blog.  DominoART teamed up with the Smeared and Smudged blog hop so we're celebrating the countdown to Halloween in spooktacular style so pop over and join us for the chance to win some awesome prizes!

"Killer Style"

If you're a Whovian, aka a fan of Doctor Who, then you'll completely understand where I was going with this one!  The 2012 Doctor Who Christmas Special was all about the Doctor and Clara defeating killer Snowmen and a few years ago the Doctor and Rose were attacked by a killer Christmas tree.  So here's an episode where the duo had to deal with killer snowmen and skeleton soldiers and only guns did the trick even though the Doctor loathes the use of them...just another day in the world of Doctor Who and I love it LOL!

 I'm featuring the two new November Smeared Ink's exclusive Rubber Club sets.  
Set 1 is Chicks Dig Guns and Set 2 created by Rick St Dennis is Dark Holidaze.  Come and join our Rubber Club and you can get your gimme hands on either of these sets or both!

I started out by stamping the images with Memento Tuxedo Black on to white cardstock designed for using Copic or similar markers on and it has a gorgeous shimmer to it but for the life of me I can't remember what it's called.  The shimmer gives my Creepmas piece the right amount of Christmasy sparkle for my rather dark theme.  All the images were coloured with Copcis and white highlights added with a gelly roll pen.  The creepmas zombie hoard was die cut out with a Wonky Square Quickutz die and matted onto black cardstock.  The gun chick was fussy cut out.  Both were distressed with Tim's Paper Distresser tool and aged with Tea Dye Distress Ink.  The burnt orange background paper is one of Smeared Ink's new digi papers from the Creepy Tree digital paper pack.  I removed the large tree in Photoshop CS6 and then stretched out the remaining design to create my background paper which I printed out and distressed and aged too.

I used my Perfect Paper Layer tools to cut the 1/8 and 1/4 inch mats from black cardstock and decorative grey cardstock.  I used my new Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations Alphabet Sizzlit called Spooktacular to die cut out the letters from black cardstock with Xyron permanent adhesive added and applied gold flecked black glitter glue to them, I also added a touch of glitter to the orange background mat too.  I added skull ribbon, a grey button with green thread and black rhinestone embellies and the gun chick was adhered with Create & Craft dimensional silicone glue.

Thank you for visiting with me today and I hope you'll come and play in our Smudgy Antics challenges and I'll see you over at DominoART...come and play in my upcoming 12 Days of Xmas Festival too!

Happy Stamping!
