Delicious Doodles meets Smeared Ink

This week, the challengeover at Delicious Doodles is being sponsered by Smeared Ink, who are launching a few new lines of digis. I just happen to be a member of the forum @ Smeared and Smudged and have a few of their stamps. Both digi and rubber. So I combined images from the two companies.
This week there is a sketchy to follow (loosely). Any theme.

My card comes in two parts,
The Front With the Grim Reaper from the Delicious Doodles collection and Holy City rubber and "It's about Time Pocketwatch" digi from Smeared Ink.
The Reaper is already a pencil drawing but I adding more painting it with distress inks, then adding a bit of ink distressing round it. The stripey paper was recieved in a fab RAK. I couldn't find another paper I wanted to use to back it all with so did some soot stamping with a couple of the Holy City stamps. The little time pieces added to follow the sketch. The web ribbon was from Bunny Zoe's Crafts . All this matted onto black paper then a grey textured CS base. The sentiment painted in.
The Inside
Features one of the new images from the Smitten range of Smeared Ink. The BP is from papermania with some satin ribbon taped down to break it up. I felt the regency look matched the image. This again was painted with DIs and backed on a piece of purple CS
I am entering this into the challenge over at Delicious Doodles - Sketch
