Loathsome (or maybe luscious) Lotharios!

We have a fun new Macabre Monday challenge for you over at the Haunted Design House blog this week; Loathsome Lotharios! We want to see all your bad boy creations featuring men who serially seduce women.
My first piece uses Tommy Leen from Kenny K, papers by Crafty Chaos Designs and a huge gold medallion saying "Bad boys do it good".

Here are the challenges I'd like to enter:
Fussy & Fancy - sketch
Kenny K's Krafty Girlz - anything goes
Creative Belli - make your own embellishments. I made the medallion necklace thingie myself and my neglected stash is the stamp which I've had for quite a long time but I've only used once. Shame on me!
Digital Tuesday - bling it up
Pink Gem Challenge - let's hear it for the boys
Paper Crafting Journey - males
Do It With Digis - spots or stripes or both
Cupcake Craft Challenges - your favourite past Cupcake challenge. I've used #80 One for the boys, #106 let's go digi, #113 boys ad their toys and #128 seeing red.

My second piece in the post was actually my first creation for this challenge, but then I decided that it wasn't macabre enough for a Macabre Monday challenge, so I changed it slightly. And then I realised that the changes made it unsafe for public viewing, so if you like wincing with your legs crossed, you can see my alterations HERE. I wouldn't recommend it for the faint of heart though :P The wonderful image is by DezinaWorld, try not to drool too much on your keyboards, ladies :P

These are the challenges I had in mind for this one:
Deconstructing Jen - sketch
One Stitch At A Time - anything goes
Pile It On - your favourite technique (mine is digital creations)
Crafty Catz - vintage look
Inspire Me Fridays - linky party
Aud Sentiments - at least two words
Craft Us Crazy - distressed vintage
ABC Challenge - Y is for Yesterday (I went for a general vintage look, used an older image and these past challenges: N is for Neutrals from Feb 2011, U is for Unused Stash May 2010 I've had that ripped cardboard alpha since last year but never used it, V is for Vintage, also from May 2010, Y is for You and Me from July 2010, D is for Distressing from Sept 2010, Z is for Zero Embellishments from Aug 2009 and finally M is for Metallic from May 2009 (I matal-ised the word "handcuffs" )
Bows n Berries - kraft
