The Christmas Ghoul

Today as we were doing some spring cleaning around the Guild Hall, the Lady Commander of Copics came across a small Christmas Ghoul. She has been holed up since last December, snatching food from the kitchens. As she seemed harmless, and in her boredom reorganized all our Christmas decorations in the attic, we decided to leave her be.

This week the theme at Wicked Wednesday is April Fools or Your Favourite Holiday. Make an ATC following this theme for a chance to win a prize from our sponsor, Creepy Cute Stamps.

I started my ATC by colouring the Creepy Cute Stamps image using Prismacolor pencils. I figured her dress needed to look a little more Christmasy so I stamped it with a little snowflake from the Lawn Fawn “Critters in the Arctic” set. This earned me +90 fashionable XP. The holly for her hair was stamped using the Lawn Fawn “Winter Gifts” set and coloured with Prismacolor pencils. 

I used my Wink of Stella glitter pen on her dress and the holly in her hair for some extra Christmas sparkle and +111 glittery XP. The snowflakes for the background were die cut using the Lawn Fawn “Stitched Snowflakes” die set. I had to add a sentiment, so stamped one using the Dylusions “Christmas Words” set.

This ATC will creep into the following challenges:

The Christmas Ghoul was a silent creature, never speaking as she went about her business. I don’t know if this would come back to haunt us later, but for now her organizational tendencies were enough to make me want to keep her around.
