SMEARED AND SMUDGED MEMBERS BLOG HOP

Some of you may know i am a member of the Smeared and smudged forum.... a great place to 'hang out' if like me you like GOTHIC, DARK, MACABRE, VINTAGE or any of the styles of art other than cute.... we do not do CUTE!
Every month we have a members blog hop and today is SEPTEMBERS BLOG HOP DAY.

The theme this month is Pieces and Parts. Use at least two stamp or digi images combined to make a "new" image or focal point on your project.

Well it had to be Mr Poe...didn't it?



Mr Poe is of cause from SMEARED INK and i teamed him with a steampunk gentleman from CREATIVE EXPRESSION 'Inventor' plate.





Here he is.... STEAMPUNK POE..... DAPPER ISNT HE?


The list of blogs to visit is below.... i cant wait to see what these ladies have instore..... and below that list is my art piece with Steampunk Poe.....

I (roughly) used the sketch from this months forum card sketch challenge..... all the stamps apart from Poe come from CREATIVE EXPRESSIONS..... its all coloured with 2x shades of blue ink and 2 x shades of brown ink.... lots of distressing.... washers, screw head and plain head brads.... brown and blue card stock.... thats it.... but i am actually rather pleased with the new Poe.... i may use him like this in the future.



I shall enter this piece into the following challenges.....
