Brain Baby

Every time I look at this tag, I’m more convinced that I’m just not right in the head 😛  But ’tis the season to be creepy…so, here it is.  I used the (any other time of the year) adorable Acorn Baby Sprite image from Aurora Wings.  I wanted to creep up a Sprite, as that is a huge challenge with them being so flippin’ cute!! I thought BRAINS when I saw this guys head (like I said, I’m not quite “right”), so set to work making all the brain type of grooves, using some of the acorn pattern as a guideline.  Continued to color in the face in as gruesome a way as I could, while still maintaining the idea of cuteness.  After I colored him, I fussy cut him out, and then wondered what the heck I was going to do with the little creeper, lol.  I haven’t done a tag for a long time so cut one out from some Black Magic paper, and embossed it with a brick pattern, using a Tim Holtz folder.  I used a portion of a trellis (Sizzix) die cut, and was reduced to hand cutting the blood drop border, because I had no die or punch in that shape.  With the little guys brain puffing out, he reminded me of a science experiment gone wrong, so I printed the sentiment on the computer, distressed it a bit and added 2 silver rivets.  Some fuzzy fiber and yarn provided the tie for this tag.

I’d like to enter this in the following:
