Smudgefest Day 3 & Smeared Ink Forum Challenge

3 Days into Smeared Ink's Smudgefest, on the Smudgy Antics Blog, and still going strong.  Today's entry is going into 2 challenges offered by Smeared Ink.  
1.  Smudgefest Day 3 - Wicked Wednesday - Color Challenge

2.  Smeared Ink Forum Smeared and Smudged - Junk Funk Challenge - Bottles

The kids were at grandma's for a couple of days this spring.  Hubby and I took a little too much advantage.  Somehow an old bottle of Boone's Farm made its way into the kitchen.  When I say old, I think this bottle was at least 12 years old, so I think you get the idea of how drunk we were.  This bottle has been all over with us and I wanted to keep and make it into something.  

I wanted it smashed and when I saw the Junk Funk challenge for this month, I knew that this was the project.  I glued the glass, ribbon, and cut skull images.  This took a couple of days to dry and had to add more Crystal Effects to pieces that were still moving around.

When Smudgefest Day 3 Challenge was posted this morning I got my inks (picture below) and spritzers ready. 

Get ready for ONE DRUNKEN NIGHT:


Smeared Ink Rubber Club
Church Image - Holy City, May 2013
Skull in name - Morte, June 2013

Stampin' Up!
Background stamp - Netting

Cut skulls around bottle - Creepy Creatures Cling

All stamped images are on Whisper White cardstock.
The skulls around the bottle are heat embossed with Black Embossing Powder.
Ribbon is from stash as well as straw material.
I used the inks above and an Aqua Painter to color in main label, skull, and tag.
I used 2 framelits from Stampin' Up! -  Chalk Talk (tag) and Ovals (main image on bottle).
4 spritzers are made from re-inkers and alcohol; 1 is a Gold Shimmer Smooch Spritz.
Words on tag written in black Sharpie.
There are 2 cereal boxes glued behind for support.
