Well another week has flown by and its Monday again..... so today i have two new challenges for you, both a really really easy ones so lets start with SMUDGY ANTICS.....
our challenge for you this week is...

I have used Two images from the MERBABES, from SMEARED INK. Coloured with promarkers and distress inks.
I then overstamped my ATC using pale blue chalk ink and brushed over some pearl white perfect pearls. I was trying to achieve the glimmer you get when you look through water....
have i succeeded?
I really hope you can join us this week, it would be lovely to see some new faces at SMUDGY ANTICS.
I shall enter this in the following challenges...... MAKE A SCENE MERMAIDS.

Now onto my next offering and as it is MONDAY it has to be
MACABRE MONDAY............
"Freaker's Free-for-All"

You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based art piece
with no restrictions.
That's right... the Mistress has been slacking, so everyone gets to benefit with a laid-back, no-holes-barred, do-WTF-ever-you-want challenge!
So there you have it.... FREAKERS FREE FOR ALL.....meaning ANYTHING GOES...but with a MACABRE twist.
I have used another of the newly released hearts from SMEARED INK.
I printed out my sentiment and hands on one piece of card...and another hand image to use as a mask...fussy cut it and laid it over the image. I stamped 'splatters' and mesh (the mesh is from Quote the raven..smeared ink) over my image. I used promarkers and ink to colour my piece...and a white pen for highlights.
I then used a black and red card stock, and a pretty border to finish this off beat ATC holder.
Well i hope to see you play along this week.... think twisted and strange ...... but whatever you like!
I shall enter the following challenges....... LOVE IS...
