Itsy Bitsy Spider

Smudgy Antics new challenge day as it's Monday!! This week it's time to re-look at a favourite nursery rhyme and bring out the side you wouldn't be explaining to your little ones. Bring out the dark side of them and turn them into something creepy or scary.
The Smeared Ink release of some great new digis last week might help you with this challenge!!
I went with Old King Cole, that merry old soul. Now why was he merry? He called for a pipe and a bowl and 3 fiddlers. What was in that pipe and bowl? My immediate thoughts were that they were for some illicit substance ;) so chose the BP that reminded me of that substance hehe. It's the Autumn/Fall digi paper from Delicious Doodles.
I followed the card sketchy from the Smeared and Smudged forum this month. There's more challenges going on there if you'd like to join in with an awesome prize for one lucky winner.
King Cole here was coloured using promarkers. I had to give him his "pink eye" lol.  I fussy cut out the crown and fiddlers with the hands from a second image to give more dimension.then laid the whole thing on an embossed oval. Ribbon is from stash.
The other girls on the DT have been very creative and their projects need to be seen. We also have a newbie on the team, The wonderful Lisa has graciously joined us. Please pop by and say "hi" and welcome her.
