HDH117 - Chic Freaks

Well we have a sponsor this week over at Haunted Design House that probably every single one of you know and love and it is Stampotique!!  Their images are so unique and freaky and wonderful and guess what?  They are also putting up a $30 gift certificate for the winner.  I know that this will get a lot of you excited but calm down you have to enter first haha.

Anyway on to  my project/s.  I thought Chic Freak, well what would most freaky girls like.  The conclusion was wine, chocolate and a nice candle.  So that is what my projects are:

 A bottle of wine inside a shoe bottle holder (I made this using paper mache and painted then glittered over).  The label is stamped with heads by Daniel Torrente.  The embellishments used are from our own Creepy Glowbuggs etsy shoppe which are the brain at the top and the skull on the neck.  The image used on the shoe is Linda another Daniel Torrente stamp.

This is a coffin chocolate box that I had made and just coloured the image in black and white.  I stamped the choccies wrapper with heads.

Again I used the heads stamp on tissue paper then melded it with the candle.  Personally I love this and am going to keep it haha.

The inside fo the shoe is also stamped with heads.

The individual chocolate.

The stamped chocolate wrapper.

The brains and skull.

Sorry for so many pics but you all know just how bad I am at taking pics.I realise the post is a bit disjointed I apologise but I have been up with my two year old as she has had earache and I am rather confused at the moment what with the lack of sleep.

I absolutely adore the stampotique stamps and only just found out recently that there are stores here in the UK that sell them.  So watch out bank account lmao. 

Well come on people there is a $30 gift certificate to be had for the winner.

Many sleepy hugs Andrea C x

Fabulous spooky gift set Andrea, that shoe bottle holder is outstanding and I like the brain on top of the bottle, you can see how much work you have put in to create these wonderful pieces.
