Friday Inspiration with The Grim Reaper.

Happy Friday to you all. Here's my DT Inspiration in the form of a Tag. I used  The Grim Reaper  from Teri Sherman available in the Smeared Ink Store. I coloured the image up with copics then scanned into photoshop . I created my tag background then placed the image in a pleasing manner. Added a gothic frame and to finish the quote. The word fear is from the Other Side of Fear  set also available in the Smeared Ink Store. I then printed out, attached to a tag cut from mountboard , inked the edges and finished with Ribbon.
To enter the challenge here at Smudgy Antics remember you have to use at least I smeared Ink Stamp to qualify for entry into the challenge. You will find all the details in the sidebar to your left.

Thursday Inspiration

I have got a journal page to share with you today, the theme of it is the E.A. Poe poem A dream within a dream. This page was actually a finished page that I didn't like so I painted over it, then I used some water soluble wax pastels to make it look a bit more interest before I stamped onto using rubber stamps from the Quoth the Raven set and adding the words of the poem. If you want to join us in this months challenge the link is just over there<<<<<< We do love to see all your Smeared Ink makes.

Candy Inspiration

Today's DT-post for Smudgy Antics is the September-October page in my calender. 
I used Alexandria Serrano's Candy Girl for this page and colored her with promarkers. Added a blue glitterpen to her lashes to make them stand out and gold to her lips.
For the background I used a new Christmas paper with peppermint candy, which was perfect to this image. =)

As always to enter our Anything goes monthly challenge here at Smudgy Antics you have to use atleast 1 Smeared Ink stamp to be qualified to enter the challenge!
