Smeared & Smudged January Sketch Challenge

It’s Friday night…a time I don’t usually post, but it’s my day to show off some fabulous Smeared Ink “shtuff,” and I hate to disappoint! I was inspired to use Kelli’s card sketch. I hope you are too, because if you play along, you could win some rad digis from Delicious Doodles! Click HERE to visit the Sketch Challenge thread. Here’s the card sketch.

For my card, my focal image is from As Death, and the 2 background stamps (in the grey area) are from Quoth the Raven. I know, I know… I use those 2 stamps all the time…but they are perfection!!! They work with almost everything I make.

This is such a creepy image. The stuff nightmares are made of! I colored the happy couple in with my colored pencils.

I punched out some gears (EK Success) and highlighted them with a silver marker. The red cardstock is from Prima. But do you see the fabulous text? That’s from Smeared & Smudged’s other sponsor for the month, Madness Paper! I think the text is in Czech, but I’m not positive. Whatever it is, it’s super cool.

I hope you take a peek at our 2 fabulous sponsors for the month. Delicious Doodles has some truly incredible digis. Some cute, some totally creepy. You’ll get to see a great sampling of DD’s images on the 26th because the S&S DT is going to have a blog hop! So be on the lookout. As for Madness Paper? Just go to the Etsy shop and by a pound of paper. I promise you, you will be enthralled with what you get. From what I have been hearing…from my fellow DT girls, some of their men have been caught stealing borrowing some of the goodies we received! My husband and son included. Now that’s something special!

Hope to see you playing along at Smeared & Smudged! It’s a fang-tastic forum. Have an inspiring day (or night!). :)
