SMUDGY ANTICS MONDAY :-)

Hello Peeps and welcome to another Monday (at least I hope it will be Monday when this AutoPost goes up ) !!!
This week at Smudgy Antics we have a COLOR challenge for you. 
 Use at least three of the colors in the sample below.

Be sure to read and follow the challenge rules posted on the left side bar to qualify for the random prize drawing and the coveted "Top Three" badge.
For my piece this week I have made an ATC using one of the Zombie Headshots from SMEARED INK. I printed her out 3 times and then decoupaged it up with silicone glue to make her 3D. Then I made a paper weaving background and sandwiched it between the little folder I cut out with my Sizzix die. I made the stick pin with a skully bead and some other bits from my stash.  I used a tiny little alphabet set of stamps to stamp Boo but I always press too hard with the exclamation mark and it goes blobby - so I had to write over it with a fine pen !!! DoH !!!!  When am I gonna' learn with that ?!   Pretty sure I have used all the colours in the swatch :-) LoL


I hope you will come over and play with us and take a look at what my DT Chums have made for you to see :-)

SMUDGER CHALLENGE 6

Hello and welcome to SMUDGER CHALLENGE 6 - REDUCE, RE-USE, RECYCLE.
I have made a little mini album with tags from old Toilet Roll Tubes :-)  I love using up these little suckers (I also use them to make legs for my 'SooZooS'... you can see them HERE)
I have used papers by Crafty Chaos - Halloween Howlers and Eye of Newt - and my images are  CAT NAP TRIO  and WITCH 1 from SMUDGETASTIC. My images were coloured with Copics and then I scanned them back into my computer so that I could have different sizes. I used plain orange tags inside and stamped them with an assortment of cat stamps and a new one I won recently. I finished off with a Bat border punch which was a present last year.



Tag Stamps;
Black Cat by JudiKins
Paw Prints - Cats Rubber Stamp Collection - All Night Media
Little Bit of Burlap - Unity Stamps

I hope you will come over and play with us at SMUDGER CHALLENGE, and re-use some of your trash :-) xxx

SMUDGY ANTICS - SUGAR & SPICE

Happy Monday and welcome to this week's Challenge over at SMUDGY ANTICS............ Sugar & Spice.
I must say I was a bit stumped for ideas at first and seemed to get more Mojo-less as this weekend drew near :-( Maybe coz' my illness flared up and knocked me for six this weekend. I have got my project up and finished though, so all is well. Maybe I'll creep back off to bed now though coz I am still not quite right !!  :-D xx
I have used one of my new digis which is exclusive to SMEARED INK.....'Succubus 3'.
printed her off twice and coloured her with Copics. Then I scanned her back into my computer and melded them together. I have also used some Roses from the 'Flower King' set also by SI. The background papers are from Crafty Chaos Designs. 


I hope you will come and join us this week and also take a look at what my other Smudgy Sistahs have made for you to see. :-) xxxxxx

Now since I don't have one of these kits AND Pumpkins are not available here in Greece at this time, I improvised... with an Aubergine :-D LoL  Well, they do have a great colour.
Here's what I made....

I much prefer carving pumpkins coz I could get inside these little suckers, but I think their stalky 'hats' look cool.
Well, I hope you will come over and play along with us this week, and feast your eyes on the gorgeous creations from my fellow Minions :-D

* These aubergines were grown by a Greek neighbour and are about the size of a tennis ball. They are posed sitting on the pen holder for my Wacom :-D

QUEST 13 AT QUOTH THE RAVEN

Hello Poe Peeps and welcome to Quest 13 over at QUOTH THE RAVEN.
Our Quest this time is inspired by the story 'Some Words With A Mummy' - Poe's dig at the obsession that the Victorians had for Egyptology and stuff. Really very funny !! It was quite a change for him to write thusly :-)
Here's a little quotette :-D ........... .

"Come to me, by all means, my dear good friend, as soon as you receive this. Come and help us to rejoice. At last, by long persevering diplomacy, I have gained the assent of the Directors of the City Museum, to my examination of the Mummy --- you know the one I mean. I have permission to unswathe it and open it, if desirable. A few friends only will be present -- you, of course. The Mummy is now at my house, and we shall begin to unroll it at eleven tonight".

We also have exciting news for you - the very talented SHELL has accepted our invitation to join our DT at Quoth The Raven and she has done the most amazing first project for us. You just have to go over and see :-D It's awesome and creppy/funny at both the same time :-D LoL

Now, this week I had a silly stupid idea put to me by my other half, as I was a bit stressed and short of time and my Mojo was definitely NOT playing the game for this Quest. I laughed when he suggested it and had pictures flashing in my mind straight away, so came down to draw. This is what I ended up with :-D

Also lurking in there is a wonderful little digi Mummy that I bought yesterday from the amazing SPYDER. She's got some fine digis - pop over and see - and she also does freebies on her Blog. 
I used a border and picture of Poe from the Web. I also found a Heiroglyph alphabet but I wouldn't be too sure on it being accurate !! LoL  Any guesses as to what it says ???? 
Whoever gets it first will receive a little Prize from me :-)  Just drop me a quick email. x
So anyways - here it is....  Click on Pic to enlarge....


Sorry the quality is not brilliant... my camera is still mucking about and on it's last legs. New one is arriving by Donkey mail !!! :-(

I hope you will come over and have a look at the wonderful creations my fellow Minions of The Master have made to show you and also play along with us :-) This is a Month long Quest, so you have plenty of time. If you would like to read the full Poe story, please go HERE.

SMUDGY ANTICS - TIC TAC TOE MONDAY :-)

Hello Monday Peeps,
This week over at SMUDGY ANTICS our Challenge is Tic Tac Toe (3 in a row).
All you do is pick 3 in a row in any direction and make your creation to incorporate those things. Easy Peasy :-D .

  
                                      

Well, I went straight across the middle and made an ATC. I am trying to make a little collection of these as a present for someone :-)  I used 'Bone Bunny' from SMEARED INK. I printed him 5 times and then fussy cut him and layered up with silicone to make him 3D. For my Background, I used 'Grate' from the Quoth The Raven Set also by Smeared Ink. Since I only have this as a digi and not in rubber, I carefully drew over it with a Versamark ink pen and the sprinkled it with 'Personal Impressions' - Black Super Sparkle embossing powder and heated it with my heat gun. It doesn't show up well in photos but it's lovely stuff. :-) My backing is plain black cardstock.




I hope you are going to come over and play along with us this week, and also check out the wonderful creations from my Smudgy Sistahs :-) xxxxxx
