Happy Creepmas!!!!

I have to admit that time is moving so fast, it is kind of scary.
Christmas is almost her, stores are filled with ornaments and decorations,and everything is so traditional.
I am not saying it is boring, I love traditional, but sometimes have more fun with the non traditional things.
Since I have lots of problems finding the non traditional decorations and centerpieces, I will be making some of them myself.
When I saw the new image by Teri, owner and designer of Delicious Doodles, I knew what to create, an altered puzzle for my coffee table.
Here it is:


The image is called Skully Santa, don't you just love him!
the image was colored with Copics and Prisma color pencils. Cutting the pieces was kind of tricky because my hands are hurting a lot, but it was so much fun to see everything come together.
To finish it up I used Vintage Photo distress ink and made the borders a little darker, it creates some interests and contrast to the piece. The frame was painted with red acrylic paint and it was also distressed.
This piece measures 8 inches by 11 inches (20.32 centimeters by 27.94 centimeters).
I would like to enter this project in the following challenges:
