HDH and S&S Junk Funk July Challenges

Haunted Design House Macabre Monday Challenge is onto the end of its second week.  I have tried a couple of ideas, but did not work out.  SO I put it aside and moved on.  Then this morning was commenting on some blogs and was re-inspired by an HDH and my fellow Smeared Ink Design Team member.  Thanks Creepy Glowbugg!

The challenge is EERIE INSPIRATION.  There are 9 images that were given.
PLEASE go by and leave some love for the HDH DT's there is some amazing inspiration.

I am also placing my hang in the July Smeared and Smudged Forum Challenge, Junk Funk.  This month, NEWSPAPER must be used somewhere in your project.

My Cracklin' Deets

Found this angel at a garage sale. 
Covered leaves with Black Gesso.
Covered angel with White Gesso.
Hard to see wings, but left them plain as with sash and hair...with the exception of my messy application on other parts.
Once body was dry added Crackle Distress by Ranger.

Eyes were filled in with Black Accents by Ranger.  Then gone over with White Gesso and a paper piercer to blend.
Black fine tip sharpie to make pointy nails on feet.

Some leaves are also covered with Crystal Effects.
Skellie head from online, purchased as a string of skulls.  Black Accents on eyes.

Cymbals in hands have skeletons fussy cut from a Rick St. Dennis digital stamp called Basket of Skulls.
Each was adhered on, Crystal Effects over and then for texture clear microbeads. 
Black Gesso around edges.

Flower is a Framelit Die from set Floral Frames.
Newspaper flowers where then spritzed with Dylusions Spray Ink and home made mixture spritz.

White backing is Waffle Paper (retired SU!).
Used a piece of cardboard for backing base.  White Gesso around edges and front.
White Organza Ribbon for the hang.
All materials used are current Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted.
