Creepie Cuties First Challenge: My Creepy Valentine

Hi everyone!  I just love the funky, cute-yet-creepy digi images at Creepie Cute Stamps, so I was thrilled to see their very first challenge posted here:


I am also entering this into the:

and
*My tip is this:  Use Halloween background papers to "creep up" your sweet image any time of year!  I love the creepy-cute stuff, and when I started working with this image I almost paired her with some heart DP but decided to use the skull paper at the last minute.  It was the perfect touch to give her that goth look that she was hoping for while staying sweet for Valentine's Day!  ;)
 
Creepy-cute is  right up my alley, so I jumped right in.  :)  I used the Sweet Little Emma (freebie from quite a while ago) image, colored with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits.  I added red Stickles to her lollipop and shoes, and also to outline the sentiment (which was done with my Dymo Caption Maker).  DP is a digi paper in .pdf form from Papercrave.com - punched out some hearts with my heart punch from Stampin' Up!  Peace.
