Smudgy Antics Challenge!!

Geeze Louize, this has been one busy month and I am sad to say my time on my fun stuff has suffered!  I had/have about 9 different projects going and about an hour a day to do any work on any of them.  I have to regroup my thoughts on what and where I was going w/ each project.  But prevail I did.  So now get ready for a sh#t load of posts!

First up is my card for the Smudge Antics Challenge Dripping that ends in oh 5 hours.  So if read this you have until midnight to get your project in.  Dripping must be incorporated in the project.  You NEED to check out the Design Team's inspiration samples...Amazing! 

My card, Venice At Night, used a great image and my background has the Drippings.

The Dazzling Details
Image in set can be found HERE on Smeared Ink.  It is from the set called Venice Digi Set.

Image was printed out onto Very Vanilla card stock (cs), from Stampin' Up! (SU!).  All products used are SU! unless otherwise noted. 

I then used markers to color in image. 

Silver Dazzling Details is on mask and on bells.

I added Crystal Effects randomly to head/neck areas.

Small Jewel Pearls are used for eyes.

Images was fussy cut ready to be placed on card front.

I picked out some Crayola Crayons that looked like they fit my color scheme.  Smushed them w/ the end of my scissors and sprinkled the bits onto the top of my Basic Gray cs.

Used Heat Gun to melt bits and lifted card so that the melted crayon ran downward. 

I used all three colors in the picture, then did the red, Red Violet, over the other three.  I repeated this again in the center of cs.

I spritzed cs with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz.

Card Base is a Basic Black cs and Silver Glimmer paper for sides.

Dimensionals to adhere Basic Gray to base and cut image to front.
