Smudgy Antics challenge and day 15

Hello everyone It's Monday again which means another challenge over at Smudgy Antics!! Now there is some rather interesting news there today too, we are changing the way the challenges work the winners will be picked in a different way from now on so please go and take a look at the challenge blog for the full information on how the challenges will work.

This weeks challenge is Dia De Los Muertos, I had a bit of a block in making this one so decided to use the sketch on the smeared and smudged forum very sketchy challenge. I had a look on the internet for inspiration too and was finding that every search was bring up more an more bright colours. I am not normally a fan of bright but I had a go with this card anyway. Once it was all put together I looked and thought it's missing something, which is when I tried my hand and free hand doodling, something I have never done before!! I need more practice, but for a first try it's not that bad! :) 



The image I used is one of the new digi's from smeared ink and can be found here 

Maybe you 31 dayers could make one of your days this week dedicated to Dia De Los Muertos and come play along with us!

Under the sea

I felt the need to get messy today and all the other projects I am working on are in different stages and all drying so I started something new, I wanted something that I could start and finish in one sitting. I decided on this mixed media banner. I have used various ephemera that I had which matched the under the sea theme and then I stamped up one of the stamps from Smeared Ink's Abyss rubber set. She has been coloured in with spectrum noir markers.
