Dead Divas

Hello, all! Today I have some fun projects to share with you from a couple of challenges over at the Smudgy Antics Blog and the Smeared and Smudged forum. The first project is a card I made for the current weekly challenge over at the Smudgy Antics Blog: Dead Divas.

Welcome back everyone, Happy Monday! Last week's challenge was amazing in the entries that you all produced, and we hope that this week you will continue to wow us. We'd like to encourage you to really show off your creativity and personality in all of these challenges; this is one spot where you can pull out all the stops. With that being said, we can't wait to see what you do with this one!

As with any other weekly challenge, there are rules (although ours are pretty easy to follow and won't change each week) and here's a recap:

*Each Monday morning a new challenge will be posted. It will contain that week's theme and prize information.

*To participate, you must make a project that fits the theme and add it to the post using the Inlinkz linky. It must be linked by midnight on the following Saturday, Pacific Time. This gives you six days to complete the challenge

*Your project can be anything (card, scrapbook page, altered or 3-d item, etc) as long as it is handmade and stamped somewhere with either a rubber or digital stamp. We have taken into consideration our digital artist fans and will be allowing all-digi projects. Feel free to think outside the box and have fun with your project! We are all about looking at things differently and look forward to the variety of projects and mediums we are sure to see.

*You must use AT LEAST 1 Smeared Ink image on your project. You are allowed to use anything else that you like.

*The weekly winner will be chosen by random number and revealed on Sunday morning. Prizes will vary and may range from a free digi to a coupon to a blog badge.

So let's get to it! Here's this week's info.

The Challenge:


As we said before, use your imagination on this one! You will see the great variety with our DT samples, and we've left it wide open for you to put your own twist on it.

This is my take on the challenge:

Drop Dead card. I used a digi stamp from Simply Betty Stamps and my Scraps of Darkness August Envy Kit to make this (Papers and flowers). I added foam Thickers covered in Distress Stickles in Peeled Paint. (For Grungy Monday #20 at Studio L3), some flourishes made out of purple Stickles, some punched out bats, and some pearl embellishments.

The Woods Layout. This page is for the Challenge Challenge over at the Smeared and Smudged forum and for my Darker Side Challenge over at The photo is of my younger daughter last Halloween wearing my red cloak. I used some flourish stamps from Smeared Ink printed on some bluish paper and the papers are from my DCWV Immortal Love stack. I added Thickers, Prima flowers, and Christmas Red Stickles.
