TRY IT ON TUESDAY DONE SMEARED INK STYLE.

I wanted so much to get something done for my DT spot at TRY IT ON TUESDAY but i didnt get it finished, so i have teamed it with todays SMEARED INK dt post.
Try it on tuesday has CHOCOLATE as the new challenge....so i used shades of brown, creamy vanilla and a minty green.
The victorian ladies and gents are SMEARED INK http://smudgyantics.blogspot.com/ SMITTEN digi stamps. This wall-art piece is made up of 16x 2 &1/2inch squares..... 3 of the squares are fabric covered, the other 13 are all stamped and decorated. I used loads of stamps but they are mainly from DESTEMPELWINKEL.


I have used ink, acrylic paint, alcohol ink and promarkers.
The ladies and gents are coloured with promarkers.


There is lace....lots of it.....gems, pearls,ribbon, brads, broken jewelry, bits and bobs i had laying around....i hate to waste anything.
I have reused mount board as the backing for the individual squares.



I made 2 different sorts of flowers using scraps of silk and taffeta, with pearly brads in the middle. The flower at the top has 2 layers.... and the leaves and bobbly bits are rescued from last years christmas crackers.
If you can see the images in the background, you'll see they are of LONDON .
I hope you can join in with the challenge at TRY IT ON TUESDAY and come and visit the SMEARED AND SMUDGED FORUM and DT BLOG there.
This has no 'nasties' on it.... no Ravens, no Poe, no Skulls..... nothing that i usually use.
