AUTOPOST
Good morning - hopefully this went up on time.
                                                
These are my pieces for POISONED PEAS PLEASE Challenge 8 - Sugar Skulls/Day of the Dead. We are sponsored by Dilly Beans and I have made 2 projects for you to see.
My first one is a card and the second is an ATC. I was lucky enough to get to choose a couple of images from Dilly Beans and I coloured both of them with pencils and baby oil.
I used "Day of the Dead Frida" and "Lila".

2'FER

Happy Monday Peeps,
Today my offering is my DT piece for both SMUDGY ANTICS and HAUNTED DESIGN HOUSE  HDH155.
I have used a gravestone as the main base coz at HDH this week our theme is "RIP". This comes from a digital scrapbook kit but I just printed it out as normal after making it the size I wanted.


The Challenge Theme for Smudgy Antics is
"Dia De Los Muertos".

THERE HAS BEEN A CHANGE IN THE RULES.
There will be no more top 3 or random winner.
Our Design Team will vote for ONE winner and that person will receive both a blog button and prize. You do not have to use a Smeared Ink image to win.  We pick the best of the entries so bring your A-game!

The image is one of my new digis for SMEARED INK... ' Dia de Los Muertos 2' and I coloured her with Copics and Aquamarkers.





See how my little carved aubergine is coming along too !!  Now that the fruit flies have gone, he is drying out nicely and getting uglier by the day LoL  :-D xxx
This is what he looked like before.... I must admit I did laugh when his eyes dropped out !!!   bwaahahahaha !!

HAUNTED DESIGN HOUSE 154 - BATS IN THE BELFRY

Me again - well it is Monday and you know you get me at least twice ...snort !!
Today for Macabre Monday over at HAUNTED DESIGN HOUSE we are doing "Bats in the Belfry". Your task is to create a dark, Gothic or Halloween based project that has something to do with Bats. Think belfries, church steeples and all round general battiness !! 
Today, I have made a 3D Batty earring using one of the Bats from "A little Bit Batty" set by Smeared Ink.
I fussy cut him in 5 layers and then stuck him with silicone and dipped him in my melting pot. I had already attached a piece of wire, so I then threaded him up some beads and added an earring hook. Voila !!
Sorry the picture is a bit smeggy, I tried several times, but this is the best I got until the new camera comes. 


I hope you will pop over and see what my Minion chums have created... there are some mindblowing creations to see !!!! Hopefully you might get the urge to play along with us.... you must have a few bats somewhere ??!!!

Challenges I am entering :


SMUDGY ANTICS - MOVIE MADNESS

Happy Monday Peeps,


I have actually got my butt in gear and completed my DT projects for this week - YaY !!
Here is my first one... Movie Madness at SMUDGY ANTICS.
We are still doing the weekly Challenges along with 31 Days of Halloween and I must say that all the Girls on that are working like the clappers. There are some awesome pieces on show, so why not pop over at have a look..... 31 Days of Halloween with SMEARED INK at SMEARED & SMUDGED FORUM. There are Scavenger Hunt Prizes to be one and the whole thing is a feast for your eyes. Soooo much gorgeous work and a definite inspiration. 
So, today is Movie Madness Day. If you didn't know, I am now an artist for SMEARED INK and I draw exclusive images for them that you can't get anywhere else - some of them on the slightly darker side LoL 
Here's the new stuff :-)  (Click on pic to enlarge)..



This is using one of my latest in the New Releases, done specially for this Challenge. It is inspired by The Cask of Amontillado, which is a story by Edgar Allan POE and was also made into a couple of films.
I coloured my image with Copics, and snagged a clapperboard from the Web. The film strip I bought from Linda at Scrapcat. She has so many cartridges for her Cricut, she sells die-cuts, which is awesome coz I don't have one of those :-) 

Here we are:



Now, I hope you will pop over to SMUDGY ANTICS and play along with us this week.Art is inspired by many things and we want to see what kind of inspiration you can get from a movie. Being October, I would suggest a scary or creepy movie of some sort. If you insist on making a Tinkerbell type project - which will surely result in projectile vomiting from Lady B - then feel free to do so.
*We do ask that you state the name of your movie of choice, in case it is not evident to others looking at your project :-)
See you there :-D x

31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN WITH SMEARED INK

Hello Everyone and Happy Friday,
I hope you have found the delights of the 31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN with SMEARED INK over at SMEARED & SMUDGED FORUMThere are some awesome projects being displayed there every day for 31 Days and Scavenger Hunt prizes for those of us who are not actually a Blogger on the Hop. :-) I did it last year as a Wicked Blogger and won the Grand Prize - which was pretty awesome, I can tell you !!! This year I am just hopping in and out with projects and being a Sinister Lurker - just commenting on the Hop participants' creations.
Today, however, I am going to do a project coz Fridays are Smeared Ink days and I would get withdrawal symptoms if I didn't do something. :-D
Here's my little Fat Page (I am making a little book) coz I love Stitchies almost as much as I love Grumpies :-)

I paper pieced him with Halloween papers and used Copics to colour his extras. Then I used a batty punch for the edging. The letters were cut randomly from a magazine and the little Pumpkin was a gift from my good friend Andrea at SMUDGTASTIC. She sells digis in her Shop and makes super clay 'thingies'. 


Now - big News from SMEARED INK..... They have created a Smeared Ink Rubber Club! That means you can once again get your hands on Smeared Ink rubber! Members will receive exclusive rights to buy rubber sets, as well as a limited edition set during their membership that will not be available in any other form in their shop. Check out all of the details and sign up on their site by clicking below.


Wow - how cool is that ??

So, that's me off for now to go Hop for the 31 Days :-D      See you all later   xx

Explore thee thy dark and Gothic side in this, the season of ghostly doings, when ghouls and goblins doth abound.Hail thee the Victor of Quest 13 .......Fiona
The Master shall reward thee for thy efforts thusly:


For my creation I have made a tag using elements from 'Bootastic' from My Memories and have fussy cut and layered the skulls at the bottom. I then made a small pendant with a tiny picture of Poe and glazed it with Glossy Accents.


My little Halloween carved aubergine is looking very grizzly and dry now, but he adds a little weirdness to my picture - don't you think ?
I hope you will come over and play along with us this month at QUOTH THE RAVEN and also have a look and join in at 31 Days of Halloween with SMEARED & SMUDGED FORUM. I am playing along with them today although I am not doing the whole 31 Days this year :-( .
