12 Days of Creepmas ~ Day 5 with Monique

Bwa Ha Ha! Airless Chambers is once again celebrating Creepmas by joining the 12 days of Creepmas Blog Hop organized by Smeared Ink. The AC Crew will be using Rick's awesome Creepmas digis which are available at his Zibbet and Etsy shops or some of his rubber stamps which are available at I Brake For Stamps. Looking for more chances to colour Creepmas images? Check out Rick's new adult colouring book called Creepy Creepmas: A Holiday Adventure for Colorists. Details are here.

Welcome to Day 5  of the 12 Days of Creepmas Blog Hop. The blog roll is in the sidebar for those brave enough to hop through the entire line-up.

For the 12 days of Creepmas  at Airless chambers I made this Creepmas Shrine

Stamp used: The Skullie nutcracker by Rick St.dennis  is a rubber stamp by Smeared Ink, but now only available as digi on the Dark Holidaze sheet
Deco Art products used : Metallic Lustres in Silver Spark and Brilliant Turquoise. Craft twinkles in Christmas Green, Christmas Red and Chrystal . Glamour Dust Glitter paint in Turquoise and Emerald. Americana acrylics  in Titanium white and Indian Turquoise.  Dazzling Metallics in Shimmering Silver, Triple thick Gloss Glaze , Glistening Snowtex and Gesso.

The shrine is made of 2 wooden frames a wooden box and a piece of chipboard.

First Gessoed all parts and painted them turquoise, added glitter paint and next traced one of the frames onto paper to cut out and emboss (Cutlebug embossing folder Snowflakes), also painted the paper and used metallic lustre on the embossed parts
 The pentacle is made of rhinestones, was a bit of a puzzle but I think it looks great as a creepmas star

The cross is a charm, it's upside down ofcourse....duh!  I mean,  CREEPMAS!! all Creepmas crosses are upside down aren't they?
 The nutcracker was stamped on paper, and coloured, I used glitter paint to give him some bling and a shine star rhinestone to put on his hat. After that I used 2 layers of triple thick gloss glaze to give it a more nutcracker varnished wood look.

 The trees are normal trees from my hubbies model train, I borrowed them :-)   and put lots of glitter on them to decorate (I don;t think hubby wants them back now LOL)
The snow flakes are stamped using white americana paint and they have rhinestones added. there is glitter paint in the inside walls of the shrine too
 I added some battery operated christmas lights to give it some extra cheer    errrmmm I mean CREEP

 to get some extra bling I added tinsel and silver painted, glittered skullies with real candles on their heads (candles and skulls are a must for a Creepmas shrine, everybody knows that)
 To give the scene a frozen look I added turquoise glitter glue to the edges and glistening snowtex on the ground......very creepmassy :-)   (I can just hear the nutcrackers scary voice sing "Let it go")
 O forgot to tell you, the embossed snowflakes on the frame have rhinestones too
 just like the eyes of the skull candle holders :-)

that's about it,  just paint glitter and rhinestone away and you have a blingy creepmas shrine, this one is made for the Sparkle challenge on Rick;s fans and friends facebook group..........cuz you did not think I would use that much glitter and bling on my own  would you???    there goes my dark reputation  lol
