SMUDGY ANTICS and MACABRE MONDAY

Welcome to the new challenges at two of my favourite challenge sites..... First up we have SMUDGY ANTICS..... and we have a sketch for you this week.... its a nice clean and simple one...check out the blog to see the exact sketch but heres my piece using it as inspiration....I have used all SMEARED INK images...digis and real rubber for this POE piece. I made a clay heart with dripping glass paint blood.... i stamped out my sentiment and cut off the 'N' at the begining so instead of 'nevermore' it says 'evermore'. I wanted an aged vintage feel to this piece so i used coloursoft pencils, and ink.....and of cause the usual black smudgy edges.
It would be wonderful if you could join us this week as its the last week of the current dt.... a new team of invited only designers will be announced on wednesday.... nail biting stuff!

Next up is of cause MACABRE MONDAY.....
http://haunteddesignhouse.blogspot.com/ Where our new challenge is.....

"Shot through the Heart"

You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based art piece
that includes a heart and a hole somewhere on the project.
I have used the same SMEARED INK image as i did for the piece above but went for the striking red and black colour scheme for this fatbook page. A silver coloured heart charm and a piece of black ribbon, added to the black ink distressing makes for a very contempary piece.
I hope you'll come and play along.... think of all the off beat valentines cards you could make?
I shall enter the following challenges.....BOTH PIECES.....
