This week’s Macabre Monday challenge totally inspired me. My little family of 4 got our pictures taken a couple weeks back and I had purchased those cheapo $1 frames from Michaels so that I could create some cool gifts for the Grandparents. Well, this week’s challenge over at HDH asked us to use pink in a sinister way. Well, take a peek at Rhiannon’s snazzy duds and what I did to funkyify my frame. The Girl refused to smile for even one picture…but I gotta say, she’s pretty damn cute anyway! So I painted the wood frame fuchsia and then dug out this teeny skull and crossbones (Lost Coast Design) Dani had given me a while back and stamped it all over with Pigment Ink. I also added the “Hey Pumpkin” sentiment from Cosmo Cricket. I embossed all of that in clear. Then, I dry brushed some metallic white acrylic paint over the whole thing to glam it up a bit. But it needed something else…I looked up from my workspace and noticed a jar of misc. buttons. And in it was this crazy skull! PERFECT! Also in the jar were the little pink hearts which I made into a bow and topped it off with that fabulous silver star button. But it still needed something…So I found (after much digging) a bottle of faux snow. Slapped it on, and drizzled some black seed beads on to the white goop. Finished! I think it’s rockin’ and totally adorable! Just like my Rhi Bear. And I am happy to say that is is standing proud in my Mom’s living room already. Now I just have to figure out what to do for my Mother in law…she’s definitely not into skulls like my mom is! Have an inspiring day!
