Smeared & Smudged Creepmas - Day Five

Happy is Day Five of the Smeared & Smudged 12 Days of Creepmas! 

For today's project I used a wooden snowflake that is about 12" at the longest point. My bone and skull image is a digital stamp from Delicious Doodles called Skully Christmas Wreath. I took some liberty cutting it out (yes, I am a lazy crafter), the full image has some really cool thorny boughs surrounding the skulls and bones. Check out the site for some great digital stamps.

I printed the wreath out on design paper, added some shadows with chalk and then glitzed it up with some blue and iridescent glitter. The words say "Deck the halls with skulls and bones falalalala...lalala". I've been having fun creating creepy Christmas decorations.

Now it is time to pop over to Carla's Blog to what she has created for Day Five. If you get lost, the blog roll is posted on the sidebar. Have fun!
