Chic Freaks

Theme on Haunted Design House this week is - Chic Freaks -.
Sponsorded by Stampotique.
Oh, I do loooove Daniel Torrente's art stamps!! This one I just purchased, first time I used it. 
I stamped the background with versamark and then brayered over it. One with mushroom Adirondack ink, the other with Mountain Meadow Big&Juicy ink.
Am not sure what colour is my favourite, so I put them both on my blog.
Thought the lyrics worked perfectly for this challenge.

Challenge on Grungy Monday #32 is A Little 12 Tags Review, sponsored by Simon Says Stamp!
It is about Your Favorite New Technique From 12 Tags 2011.

On Less Is More the challenge is 'One Word'.
I used versamark to stamp the man with umbrella, then brayered with Distress Ink Iced Spruce and spritzed some water to make it look like it rains. Stamped the word Pluie (Rain) with Iced Spruce & Archival Black.

Cracked ATC's

Stamped the woman / flower with Archival Ink. Added several layers of Versamark & UltraThick EmbossingPowder, placed the atc's for a few minutes in the freezer and cracked the layers.
The rubbed DI on the surface and wiped of with tissue.
