12 Days of Christmas - Day 11 & A Wicked Christmas

Hello, all! Today is Day 11 of the 12 Days of Christmas for Smeared Ink! And today I have combined my Day 11 project with a project for the Wicked Christmas Challenge over at Smudgy Antics. The image from Smeared Ink that I used for today's card is one of my favorites; this Santa is one of the coolest I've ever seen!


The Wicked Christmas Challenge is this:

Weekly Challenge - Wicked Christmas

We have another challenge for you this week, and we KNOW you will love it! Since the holiday is fast approaching we are allowing two weeks for this challenge. Oh...and once again we have tweaked the rules to hopefully inspire more participants.
Here's a reminder about the rules. The new rules will be in red.

*Each Monday morning a new challenge will be posted. It will contain that week's theme and prize information.

*To participate, you must make a project that fits the theme and add it to the post using the Inlinkz linky. Your link must take us directly to your project on a publicly accessible blog or website, or it will be disqualified - so please make sure you're linking to your actual post. It must be linked by midnight on the following Saturday, Pacific Time. This gives you six days to complete the challenge. *For this week's challenge we are allowing 2 weeks so participants can enjoy the holiday and still be able to play along.

*Your project can be anything (card, scrapbook page, mixed media, altered or 3-D item, etc) as long as it is handmade and stamped somewhere with either a rubber or digital stamp. We have taken into consideration our digital artist fans and will be allowing all-digi projects. Feel free to think outside the box and have fun with your project! We are all about looking at things differently and look forward to the variety of projects and mediums we are sure to see.

***Every entry, no matter what stamped image is used, will now qualify for a prize. Encourage your crafty friends to come play with us!

*You may use any stamped image, however only projects using at least one Smeared Ink image will be eligible to win placement in the "Top Three".

*You can only enter and qualify for a prize if you are, or become, a follower of the blog. While you're at it, why not visit the forum as well for more challenges?

*The weekly winner will be chosen by random number and revealed on Sunday. Prizes will vary and may range from a free digi to a coupon to a blog badge.

So let's get to it! Here's this week's info.

The Challenge: Wicked Christmas
We were originally going to have this challenge week's theme "Gothic Christmas" and the following week's theme was going to be "Wicked Santa". Because we are giving 2 weeks for this challenge, we are combining the themes. You may choose either theme to work with or combine the two.

And here is my card for both!

Steampunk Santa Card. Such an amazing Santa image! I love him! I used some The Paper Studio paper, a Echo Park word sticker, some random charms for the middle of the gears, and some Crystal Stickles. The gears were stamped with some foam stamps I made with my Vagabond and the Santa was colored with Copics and Stickles.
