SmudgeFest - Day 7

Oh Wow, it's the FINAL CHALLENGE over at Smudgy Antics! Can you believe it? 7 daily challenges to encourage thinking outside the box.- Smeared Ink style! What a ride it has been! Daily prizes and a chance to win a whopping $200 prize for those that last the distance and use at least one Smeared Ink stamp in the projects.
Today is Sketchy Sunday. Using the sketchy - make a project to win an awesome Grumpie bag!!
This is what emerged from my craft room. I kept the colour scheme simple with black, white and gold/yellow.
I've used three Smeared Ink stamps here. All rubber but the digis can be found here for the flowery border and sentiment, I heat embossed in gold, and here for the rose coffin from the Candy is Dandy set. This was coloured with promarkers before coating with rock candy.
The corner detail is a wooden laser cut from Crafty Embellies.
The diagonals are strips of chiffon gathered into a rose button. I added a leaf pin and some die cut leaves to complete all the required elements of the sketchy. The paper used is from BoBunny, Enchanted stack.
Back to normal tomorrow at Smudgy Antics when we start back on the weekly challenges. Hope to see you there - It's a fun one ;D.

  1. Oh My, Helen - this is just fantastic. I love the crackle glaze effect on that rose. The embossing is divine and I just adore the way you split it with the chiffon. I never would have thought of that. A fabulous piece that is gorgeous and yet still dark :-D xxxxxxxxx
