Macabre Monday - Octopodally Ominous

At Haunted Design house this week the challenge is to create a card / project using eight items.  I have used a canvas and sprayed it with glimmer mist glacier and cosmic shimmer blue lagoon and swirled it around with my fingers then added a black glitter glue and swirled that too.  I used a page and distressed the edges with tim holtz ink pad tattered rose then added little bit of red and white stickles then rubbed some over the page itself to give it a sparkle (you can't really see in the pic).  I used one of my digi drawing and used 3d gloss on her then with some coordinations black cauldron cardstock I wet it and scraped it and generally bashed it up then gloss embossed it put it in the freezer and cracked it up good style.  The flower at the top corner I made with some scrap material I got from the pound shop.  I put a backing on the cracked backing to the girl (I make no sense whatsoever tralala).  Anyway to cut a long long long boring story very short, I stuck to the eight Canvas, Backing x 2, image, flower, page, pearls x 2 totaling eight.


I added two pics, I am so terrible at taking pics and hubby always says he will take them for me but I am so impatient that I cannot wait about for this tehe (toe tapping).  The pics haven't shown up the glimmer mist very well but it does look lovely shiny sparkly.

Watched the last episode in the series of The Walking Dead last night, I feel so cheated I didn't know last night was the end of the series, come on I can't wait for the new series I so love that show!!!

Beautiful background! LOVE the blue, it's so electric looking! Very cool techniques used on this as well. Thanks for playing along with us this week at Haunted Design HOuse.
Wanna hear some really bad news regarding the Walking Dead? The new season won't start up again until October 2011! Way lame.

This is just stunning, that bg is soooo fab! Thanks so much for playing along with us at HDH, and good luck :D
PS I also loved The Walking Dead, I'm hoping that they'll get a second series. I assume the first one was so short to see how well it would be received, and thankfully it's got some great feedback, so fingers crossed they'll make some more :)
