Forever Night and Catch The Bug

Today Catch The Bug, is sponsoring the Forever Night challenge blog.  The theme is “Goth Christmas”.  Head on over to the Forever Night challenge blog for all the details, and your chance to win some gorgeous Bugaboo Stamps!


One of my very favourites from the Bugaboo Stamps collection are the Skelekinz.  This one is called Make It Snappy - Skelekinz Merry Christmas.  You can purchase it at the Bugaboo online store, and it’s a perfect time to go shopping, because Jodie is offering a 50% off sale on everything in the store. Please check all details about the sale on the site.

I decided to color the image with shades of grey using Copic markers.  I added black flock to the hat and pompom.  Then I printed off the skeletons' in various sizes to make the string of lights.  Then the hats were added, and I used black stickles for the eye sockets.  The red card stock was embossed with the Christmas folder by Cuttlebug, then sanded to show the white core in the card stock.

Have a wonderful week-end!
