Tiddly Inks "Creepy Cute" for HDH

Creepy cute???? Had a job getting my head round that I must admit. Macabre Mondays over on Haunted Design House have gone cutesy!!! - but in a different way than most would expect. Tiddly Inks who are sponsoring this week have some other images as well as the real cutesy, and it's with those that the Minions have magic'd into some great works of art.
My effort .....
I have to get started on some crimbo stocking fillers so......
making another notebook cover with black cardstock and layering some black/white rose paper onto some pearlised white created the diamond shape in the middle. Then added Katrina from TI, coloured with promarkers, leading her pet Grumpy from Smeared Ink on a rather prickly leash. Finished off with one of the gel pens that I picked up for a few more like this.


  1. This is so cute I never thought to use the grumpies as pets :)

  2. Great work Helen - love those TI stamps and this is just so right! Hugs Cherry XXX

  3. Darling book! Katrina is beautiful and I love the grumpie as a pet! Thanks for joining us for MM at HDH! xxD

  4. This is absolutely fab Helen; your colouring as always is wonderful, I love that diamond shape behind the image, and the Grumpie as a pet with a tinsel lead? Just genius!
