Weekly Smeared Ink DT Project and Smeared and Smudged Oh! The Horror! Challenge

I have decided to get my Weekly Smeared Ink Design Project in today along with another challenge on the Smeared and Smudged Forum.  I almost missed last week and want to try to be a little more with it this week.  Stop laughing, at least I am trying (smile). 

My Design Team project can only have Smeared Ink images, which is hard because I have to choose what I want to use!  I have made a tag and used sets from past offerings of the Smeared Ink Rubber Club to hopefully get across the theme of the movie Nightmare Before Christmas, which is the Oh! The Horror Challenge this month on the Smeared and Smudged Forum.

By The Light Of The Moon Details

I used Basic Black card stock as the base and Whisper White card stock to stamp on.
Sponged Soft Sky ink over entire tag.  Then used a torn piece of scrap paper to sponge Marina Mist ink to try to make snow mounds.

I cut a spiral shape out of scrap paper to use as a mask to make the moon, with Cajun Craze ink and sponge.

Smeared Ink Rubber Club stamp sets:
Heads and die are from stamps in the Voodoo (August 2013) stamp set (drawn by Rick St. Dennis), inked with markers then stamped.
Tree is from Dark Holidaze (November 2013) stamp set (by Rick St. Dennis).  Inked with markers then stamped.

Hill is cut from scrap paper then inked with Black Staze On, but pressed lightly to give a different texture.

Words are hand written with fine tip black Sharpie.  Quote from the movie "Say it once, say it twice, take a chance and roll the dice.  Ride with the moon in the dead of night."

All edges are sponged with Smoky Gray ink.
Ribbon from stash.
All materials used are Stampin' Up! and are current unless otherwise noted.
