Smudgefest - Day four


Make an ATC with a "twist". You can interpret "twist" any way you want to, this is just one interpretation. ATC size: 3 1/2" x 2 1/2"

That's our challenge for today.
Had a long think on this and was only just before bedtime I came up with this. As it's a one day challenge, I had to stay up and finish. Oh well, maybe I get to lay in tomorrow.

Two of the Smeared Ink mini Grumpies from the original set. Stamped directly onto blue card and coloured with promarkers. Some of the sentiments from the same set with a couple of added ones from me.
The twist? Firstly, the Grumpies themselves have twisty bits on them. Then there's the twisted wire to make a flower, more wire twisted round a stone and last but no means least is the twisted ribbon rose that I made.

I am entering this into day four of the smudgefest challenge over on the Smudgy Antics blog.
