I am sorry i am so late with these posts.
We have a new challenge for you at SMUDGY ANTICS, its a colour challenge SHADES OF GREY WITH YELLOW..... whilst over at MACABRE MONDAY the new challenge is I'M MELTING.
I have combined both challenges and made a small curio cupboard.
I distress painted it... black and grey..... i used POE  and ROSE COFFIN from SMEARED INK as well as a skull digi image on the front of the tiny books  from them.
I made tiny little books and pencils...... altered a small plastic skull with tissue paper stamped with ravens from SMEARED INK also..... stuck a small candle on the top and let it burn down a long...long way!
I used various bits from my ever growing stash of oddments....... and some thin yellow taper candles.....
Lots of burning.....and melted wax.... I hope you'll come and join in with at least one of these challenges....or be like me and combine them!
I'll enter this curio cupboard in the following challenges.....

There are actually 8 babies..... maybe thats why we dont see many dragons....they hide amongst the fallen leaves!
Thanks for visiting BDx
