Smudgy Antics: Smudgefest Day 2

Are you playing along with this week long fun?  If not, I hope you are enjoying the entries and checking out all the players entries and visiting blogs.  I know I am!

On to Day 2 of Smudgefest.  Terrifying Tuesday - Create a project that showcases your favorite scarey Smeared Ink image. 

For today's project I have created a small wall hang called Whispers.  The main image stamp (girl/or kid) gave me the creeps from the day it arrived in my mailbox.  I have been wanting to stamp/create and when this challenge came along, inspiration sprung.  I hope this whispers something to you...

Deadly Details

Both are from Smeared Ink's Rubber Club sets.
Main Image - Prints, March 2013
Skull - As Death, October 2012

Stampin' Up! sets:
Flames - The Great Outdoors
Texture dots - Glorious Grunge

Main image was stamped in Sahara Sand ink on Whisper White card stock.  Then colored in images and added definition with color pencils.  I cut out the white space to somewhat of a window.  When finished I used both a Blender Pen and Aqua Painter.  I tore all edges and then sponged.  The entire images was then Versa Marked (inked), sprinkled with Clear Embossing Powder, and then heat set.

Background skull image was stamped in Sahara Sand ink on Whisper White card stock.  Flames were stamped on the left side and gone over with an Aqua Painter.  Aqua Painter also used to add some darker color to skull.  Mini silver Brads for eyes.  Hard to see, but there is Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz on background.

Main images was adhered to background with dimensionals.  I then added some great ribbon (thanks again Creepy Glowbugg!) to help frame and and more texture.  This was sticky striped to a 3 3/4" x 3 3/4" piece of Basic Black card stock.  Final piece measures about 4 1/4" x 4 1/4".

All materials and accessories are current Stampin' Up! products unless otherwise noted.
