Last week I used cool Alice in Wonderland images from Spesch Stamps for my HDH challenge. I bet the Minions shared a little giggle when they saw it, being that Spesch is the sponsor this week, and damn near all of them used those same images. Am I a week behind psychic? =)
The Macabre Monday challenge this week asks us to use a movie as our inspiration. Easy peasy, right?
Not as easy peasy as I thought. I immediately went clown, thinking I would use Killer Klowns from Outer Space, or It. I have a cool new monster clown image I have been dying to use. I colored him all up...and hated him. Completely. One of those polished turds. I thought for sure I wasn't going to make it.
I started going through my images for inspiration, and happened upon something perfect.
Papelitos Stamps. I made her into the Grady twins from Stephen King's The Shining(the movie, obviously). I used some flocked paper for the bg to represent the walls of the Overlook Hotel, where the Grady twins and a few others met their demise. I don't have a blood drip/goo punch, so I did some fussy cutting. My last dilemma was finding a font to type out their invitation to Danny Torrence in. I didn't have anything close, and my own handwriting didn't work either. Some noises from the other room reminded me of something that would help.
I have a six year old.
My nephew was removed from his mom's care last October due to her negligence and he was placed with us. He's a great kid, and we have been able to help him quite a bit. I had him write out my sentiment and then traced it. It upped the creep factor quite a bit, if you ask me.
Won't it be funny if Papelitos is the sponsor next week?
