Bad Baby

Smudgy Antics have a new challenge out today as well. This week the theme is "Bad Baby". All the DT have chosen images from the Babies of the Damned digi set from Smeared Ink. I chose "wants up" as my image to make this candle and box.. After all, Smeared Ink and the sister forum Smeared and Smudged are all about being different,

First I coloured my image with markers then scanned it as I needed it to go on really thin paper and colouring on that would not be successful. Made a png image and super-imposed onto a background from Moonlight Journey. I did enhance the red for more of that hellish look. Paper cut to size and heat set into the wax. TH iron gate border cuts in red added top and bottom with red sequins. I was aiming for that fiery look, I hope I succeeded.
The box is made from an A3 sheet of pearlised card sprayed with cranberry colourwash.
The bottom  has more of that die cut this time in orange that has been smudged with red DI.. The promlems I had in taking a pic in the light here grrrr even here I have only masked out some of the glare.
The rest of the DT have out done themselves and well worth a look.
What are you going to show us this week? I wonder.
