Today is the 25th day of our 31 days of halloween and its MACABRE MONDAY'S new challenge....and this week its sponsored by SMEARED INK...YAY!!!! So the challenge is SMEARED AND SMUDGED. Big fan of smeared ink me...and not just 'cos i'm on the DT..... I used one of the brilliant WEREWOLF digi images, printed out on to canvas (the same canvas that the sentiment , which is also SMEARED INK, is printed on) in i had a very faint image as my canvas is quite dark.
I then drew a circle for the moon and set about painting in my image in oil paints....i used a stiff flat brush and my fingers to get the smeared and smudged effect i wanted.
It looks like a real painting... well i suppose it is a real painnting but you get my drift.... it dont look like a digi image anymore!
The pic below shows the detail better.... it has real oil-painting texture.
The frame was bright silver but i toned that down with black alcohol ink... removed the glass and and made a frame mount from some heavy weight textured card.....thats it.

Please try to join in the new Macabre mondays challenge...its the last one before HALLOWEEN..... and us macabre minions will have another full year to wait til the big day....
i hope you WICKED HOPPERS like my offering today, and i'll see you tomorrow for day26.
As always the WICKED BLOG list is at the top of my side bar....have fun hopping.
