Smudgefest day 2

I am so glad I was up early to make this piece, after some rather nasty dental work mid morning I've not really been feeling up to much all day.

For this challenge we have to use our favourite scary smeared ink stamp. I have picked the same image I used in yesterdays challenge. The reason I find this skull from the Morte rubber set so scary is it looks like it's ripping it's way out of something, it's creepy but in a cool way. To make this over grown tag I first cut the tag then I stamped out the skull twice, on one of them I cut the skull out of the middle and on the other I trimmed around it a little. I then coloured the top layer with distress inks then lightly rubbed over the skull with a lighter ink. I stamped out the skull background onto a piece of pearl card and cut it out. I layered the pieces together so the skull looks like it is trying to get through the hole. The Washi tape is some I made using the smeared ink Jack rubber set and the blood smears are from the prints rubber set.
