Dancing with Death, Day 1 of the 31 days of Halloween and a NEW RELEASE!

Good morning friends, it’s Monday so that means a new challenge at Smudgy Antics! The theme this week is “Dancing with Death” and there are some new releases in the Smeared Ink store (Follow the link to check them out!) There are quite a few new digi and some of the digis have been drawn by Ike from “Ike’s Art!”

And today is October 1st and that means it is the first day of 31 Day’s of Halloween presented by Smeared and Smudged! For those not too familiar with 31 Day’s of Halloween it is a blog hop that last all 31 days of October, each and every day you will see a new project for this hop. I have the entire blog hop list on my  side bar (Too long to add it in the post.) If you forgot to sign up as a “Wicked Blogger” you can still be a Horrifying Hopper or a Sinister Lurker and win some prizes. We have some terrific sponsors for this hop!

You should have arrived here from the very talented Tori  if so your on the right path, now here is my offering and my DT piece for Smudgy Antics:

My image is complements of Smeared Ink called “Dance with Death 2” (Follow the link to get yours!!) This is one of Ike’s new digis for Smeared Ink, also one of the new releases. I have used “Calaveras – Alter Candle digi”.

I sponged up the sides of my card with Versa Mark then silver embossed it. The crown on her head is from Tim Holtz. The skeleton key, and Moon is from stash. Printed the sent from my computer.  I coloured using Copic markers. I craft-knifed the crap out of Death.

So there you have it! Hope you like it! Hope you come and join us for our newest challenge at Smudgy Antics!!
