To each his own ~ Rick St. Dennis Progressive Challenge

Hi everyone! Not only does today mark the first day of Creepmas but it is also the start of Part Two of the Progressive Challenge on the Sparkle and Glitter blog. For part two, we all use the same image which was the freebie given to those who played along with Part One. The image is a Creepmas one called Take Yer Pick. He makes me chuckle.

I coloured TYP with a mix of Polychromos and Prismacolor pencils. Glossy Accents was added to the eyes of the prezzie and the pumpkin as well as the prezzie's teeth. They were then fussy cut leaving a narrow white border and matted in black. Foam tape was added to the back to pop them off the background.

The background, a 6 x 8 inch rectangle of mixed media paper, was sprinkled with Ost Red and Orange Brusho Crystals and then spritzed with water. By picking up the background and turning it several ways, the colours blend and create new colours. Once dry, Autumn Maple Crimson Starburst spray was added in a horizontal line across the top third line and allowed to drip and run. More of the spray was splattered on the background by tapping a brush loaded with it. Stamping was added with Rocket Red Gold ink and a spider web border to which black pen was also added. The three bats stamp was inked with Archival Magenta Hue and each bat was given half pearl eyes. The holly and berries stamp was added with Jet Black Archival ink. I wanted the mix of Halloween and Christmas stamps to further the Creepmas theme as well as the choice the prezzie is giving us.

Black Marble Dylusions paint was pounced through Memory Box's Rings & Puddles stencil and White Dylusions paint through TCW's Tiny Circles stencil. The lettering was added with black foam Thicker letters. TYP was placed over a piece of cheesecloth to represent snow and a black spider sticker with a jewelled back was adhered over that. A doodled border continued the spider web border from the top. To finish, the edges were inked with black Big Brush pen, and a black cardstock mat was added to frame the piece.

Thanks for joining TYP and me today. We appreciate your stopping by. To see the other fabulous creations from Team A of Rick's EDT, be sure to stop by the Sparkle and Glitter blog.
