Macabre Monday - Out! out, damn spot!

Haunted Design HOuse - Out! out, damn spot!

This week over at Haunted Design House the challenge is to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based art piece that is covered in spatter, splatter, drips or drops.  It doesn't have to be bloody. There are plenty of other creepy,  drippy, gooey, and oozing things that can go SPLAT!

The inside had this:

Now I better explain my card.  I made this for my son to give to his teacher (minus the blood splats) haha big mistake.  I thought it would be nice for her not to get a card with an apple on it tehe.  Anyway when I showed it to my 6 year old he looked at me kinda funny and I said what do you think and he said it's very nice mummy but em, er, em I don't think it's the kind of thing to give to my teacher haha.  I told him he didn't have to give it and he said well you went to all the trouble of making it so I will give it to her.  I told him he doesn't have to do anything that will make him feel uncomfortable and he said ok could you make me a pretty one then haha, hence why I had this one to splatter blood over.

Anyways just a quick post as we are headed out today for a day dedicated just to fun, fun, fun for the kids (oh joy hehe).

LOL, it amuses me greatly that your asked you for a prettier card for his teacher! And yay, because that meant you got to go all out with this little beauty :D

Well, I see you are not neglecting to bring that child up in the right manner! I am sure my pupils would have always gladly given me a blood spattered card! Hugs, Valerie

Terrific card Andrea but can so understand where your dear little boy is coming x

DonnaMundinger said...

ROTFLMAO!!! I about snorted when I first saw it and then after seeing the sentiment I thought, well, yeah, it could work for a teacher. However, probably a good call by your son who probably doesn't want to be sent immediately to the school psychologist or counselor to have him wisked away to protective custody. LOL Great card! xxD

FANTASTIC LMHO!!!! My kid's would have given it to the teacher anyway, but then they have my wicked sense of humour and the look on her face would have been PRICELESS!!! Hahaha
