SI Weekly DT, Junk Funk Aug, & HDH

Got at least one project done today.  Where in the heck did the summer go?  Well I guess that just means that Halloween is just around the corner, heheeeee...

I have for you today my Smeared Ink Weekly Design Team Project.  I have used a Smeared Ink image called Smokey.  Smokey was a FREE image that I received from a past challenge over at the Smeared and Smudged Forum.  Sorry, he is not available for sale.

I was inspired to create this for some other challenges.  The first is the August Junk Funk, on the Smeared and Smudged Forum, which you have to use toothpicks in some way on your project.  The next is a challenge for Haunted Design House Macrabe Monday.  You have until Sunday to get your Ferocious Furballs in.  You MUST see what the Design Team has created, wow!

This bad ass bunny is either going to be a box top or a hang of some sort.

Puffin' On the Deets

Smokey and saying were printed onto copy paper.
Saying is from Smeared Ink digital set called Love Lil' Grumpies.

Image was inked with black fine tip Sharpie, shaded in and cig-ie end colored with  Blendabilities. He is fussy cut and adhered to background.

Background is stamped with Smeared Ink stamps from a Rubber Club Past Offering set called Chick's Dig Guns (Nov 2013).  Silver Encore ink was used.

Random words in saying were cut out and adhered to give a bit more texture.
Background layer is outlined with Blendability.

Black layer is Black Gesso applied to cut cereal box.

Base or bottom layer is also cut cereal box.  It was punched with paper piercer in the upper left and lower right corners.
Toothpicks were broken in half and inserted into punched holes.
Entire base was spray painted with Krylon Looking Glass Paint, to give a metallic look.
All materials used are current Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted.
