Green with Envy Blog Hop

Welcome to day 2 of the Sassy Studio Designs Green with Envy Blog Hop.  If you came here from the very talented (and also my sister) Robin's blog, you are in the right place.  This month we are doing things a little different.  The amazing artist and owner of SSD, Lindsay, has been having some computer trouble so we won't have any new images for you during this hop.  We will all be showcasing our favorite SSD images and you have a chance to win them all.  Each member of the DT will chose a random winner from their comments.  That winner will get the image showcased on that blog.  There will be one winner chosen from the SSD comments and they will win all of the showcased images.  We have a huge DT so that's a really big prize. The winners will be chosen Tuesday night and announced on Wednesday.

I had a hard time choosing an image so I let my niece, Becca, pick it.  She picked a great one.  This is Wednesday Addams.  I love her.  I tend to lean toward the darker images as does my niece.  I colored her with Copics, cut her out and popped her up with SU dimensionals.  We had to use the color green somewhere which is never a problem for me.  Not only is it my birthstone, but it is my favorite color.  

The house is Rickety House from Tim Holtz.  I used some core'dinations paper, cut it out and ran it through a paper crimper before sanding it.  The roof was put through a new Darice embossing folder.  I added a ghost in the attic and an dancing skeleton in the living room.  The background was done by sponging several Distress inks.  The grass was done using a Fiskars punch and the cobwebs were made last minute using a Q-tip.  

I hope you all had a great hop.  Now don't forget to head back to SSD and leave your comment.  I also have some blog candy posted at the top of my blog if anyone is interested.  Thanks so much for stopping by.

Your image certainly is striking in her green dress. Your house is very interesting with the peek through the windows in the house.
