Zombie Bookmark

I've got a bookmark to share with you today, I was helping my eldest son with some art homework, showing him how to apply paint with a pallet knife, so I ended up with a sheet of black card with red paint all over it. I figured it would come in handy so put it up to dry, when I was thinking about what I was going to make for this week I saw the piece of card and thought...this would work with a zombie. I  cut out a piece in the shape of a coffin, added one of the stamps from the Zombie pinup set along with one of the sentiments and made myself a new book mark.


You still have a few days left to join in with this months challenge at Smudgy Antics

I'm Poe Fairy!

I am totally pushing my luck with this piece and totally understand if the challenge blog decide to remove it for not fitting the challenge....I saw challenge, on the fantasy stampers challenge blog, called fairy nice. As soon as I saw it I thought Poe with fairy wings, after all even the darkest of people like a bit of fun and what more fun than donning some sparkly fairy wings LOL

I used the Poe and wings from Smeared Ink's Quoth the Raven rubber set.  I added some gold glitter glue to the wings then wrote out the words on some black card with perfect pearls. While all that was drying I put the background down on my journal page, well ok so that only took 5 minutes so I then spent the rest of the drying time on Dance Central LOL Once everything was dry I attached pot to a piece of string and hung it from one of the clouds so he is floating on the page. I then cut out all the words and stuck them all down.

Under the sea

I felt the need to get messy today and all the other projects I am working on are in different stages and all drying so I started something new, I wanted something that I could start and finish in one sitting. I decided on this mixed media banner. I have used various ephemera that I had which matched the under the sea theme and then I stamped up one of the stamps from Smeared Ink's Abyss rubber set. She has been coloured in with spectrum noir markers.

Saturday Smudgyness

It's my turn to share with you at Smudgy Antics. Today I've got a card to share, I have used one of the stamps from the Morbidly Adorable Tarot set 1. I used only colours from the brown grey and ice grey spectrum noir colour groups. The papers are some from my stash. So why don't you come along and join in the fun? It's always anything goes you just need to use a smeared Ink stamp.

Dead of winter/Snow Poe

Yay! It's the first Smeared and Smudged member hop of the year. The theme is Dead of Winter, to start I was struggling for ideas and then I was listening to the world war Z audio book and it was the part where they talk about the zombies being frozen into the ground with just their upper body still moving. I knew then exactly what I was going to make.  Many of you already know how much I love to alter books, this was one that was starting to fall apart so rather than throw it away I turned it into something fun. The stamp I used is Half Zombie from the build a graveyard set, I also used one of the digital papers from Smeared Ink's Icy Paper set.

Udderly Amazing!

I can't remember the last time I sat and made something just for the sake of making something. I wanted to use this stamp that I won from Flonz last year, as I was already in the middle of Christmas makes when it arrived I never got chance to use it. So I thought what better way to show it off than in the current Flonz challenge which is new year new stash, I figure the stamp is new enough to get away with it ;) The 2 sentiments are from the punny-licious set from My pink Stamper
