Gettin' Creepin'

Do you ever see stamps/images and think, no way-those aren't for me. And then over time, you really begin to like/love the exact same images? Well that's what happened to me with the Creeper Crew from The Greeting Farm. 

I always told myself that they "just aren't my style" and moved on. Well, lately I've noticed that I'm drawn to cards using these images and also Tiddly Inks new Gothic Pin Ups. I am so intrigued by these images and finally decided to break out of my "norm" and start using these images. I think we all go through times as artists/crafters when we want a challenge, want to have some fun and do the unexpected...well these are my challenge, my fun for this stage in my craftin'. 

I was bummed when The Greeting Farm introduced the Creepin' Creeper Crew Collection 1 for one day only and I missed it. But then I got excited when I found a store that still had them so I ordered it! Fun! So here's my first "Creepin'" card! 



I used the sketch for this week's challenge(#29) at 4 Crafty Chicks for the starting point for my layout. It just sort of evolved into a bit different..hehe!

This is just adorable Danni! I haven't picked any of these up yet, but they are growing on me too! :)

I know just what you mean.
Your card is adorable and the coloring is amazing. I just watched someone color one of these with Copics and she did the eyes just like you did. I love it. I really love the purple hair.
Great Job breaking out of the norm.

Danni I know just what you mean. I have a few stamp sets like that were just not my thing to begin with and now I just love them. I am sure glad you entered your card with the Greeting Farm stamps. Your coloring is amazing and I love how you turned the second layer behind the image. Your card is just stunning. Thanks for playing with us and you will come and join us for our next challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks. I love how you used my sketch and that you have inspired me more to break out and try some new stamps. Have an amazing week and sorry it took me so long to comment.
