The challenge at Haunted Design House this week is R.I.P. (rest in peace or rest in pieces?)
and the challenge at Smudgy Antics is Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead)
A card made to commemorate and celebrate the life of those loved ones, departed from this life.
I used the card sketchy from the Smeared and Smudged Forum challenge this month as the inspiration for the layout.
The images are Smeared Ink of course. The Dia De Los Muertos mask is from the Dance with Death range and the frame is from the Glam Vamps Accessories.
Coloured with promarkers. (7 different reds and 5 greys!! lol) I printed out two images so that I could mask off and spray with my home made mica spray. (purple perfect pearls, black soot re-inker and water)
The paper is from the DCWV La Creme stack. The die cut behind the image is Crafter's Companion's Die'sire Magic Mirror and the little swirls are a sizzlet die.
The flowers were sprayed with cranberry colourwash (because I couldn't find that many little red flowers in my stash). Three red tear drop gems to finish. All mounted onto deep red card then a dark cream card base.
Now you've already been and seen the fabulous blog of Valerie, and seen what she has for you today so now's the turn of the lovely Sharon.
But before you go - there is some news I must tell. It concerns the rules of the Smudgy Antics Challenges
There will be no more top 3 or random winner. Our Design Team will vote for ONE winner and that person gets a button and prize. You do not have to use a Smeared Ink image to win. We pick the best of the entries so bring your A-GAME!
See you tomorrow.
A challenge I'd like to enter this into is
