The Warrior - for Smeared Ink Smudgy Antics

Howzit Everyone!
It's not too late to get in your entries over at Smudgy Antics for our October challenge!
Here's my 2nd inspiration project!

This gorgeous image is one of Smeared Ink's new ones called Jude!  This project started out in Photoshop CS6 where I added the digi image to one of Smeared Ink's digi papers from the Poe set - their digi papers will be coming to Smeared Ink website very soon!  I then printed it out and coloured Jude with Copcs and added gold detailing with a metallic gel pen.  I tore, punched and distressed the paper edges and then layered it onto red and black cardstocks.  The final red mat was stamped in black Versafine ink with a portion of one of SI Letterbox Backgrounds real rubber stamps (middle right stamp) for a lace-like effect.  I embellished my card with a strip of black burlap ribbon gold brads and twirly strips of cardstock (cut on my paper trimmer) and bound with gold cord.
