Day of the Dead Zentangled Skull - Smeared Ink DT project for Smudgy Antics!

Happy Sunday to you all!
I went to the Original Rubber Stamp convention held in Carson, Long Beach yesterday and had a blast shopping and checking out all the new stuff and came home with quite a stash of goodies.  I can't wait to play with it all :0)

 We are now midway through our November challenge over at Smudgy Antics where it is always Anything Goes with an optional twist and this month is Metal Madness.  You can be inspired by the twist or just do whatever you want as long as your projects are on the dark side of stamping!

My midway inspiration for you is a Zentangled Day of the Dead skull.  I used Smeared Ink digi called Skull and Roses and I tangled flowers all over it.  Autumn has arrived in SoCal so and I was inspired to use a palette of yellows, oranges and peachy-reds on this one.

I printed the Skull and Roses digi out on Neenah solar white, tangled to my hearts content with black micron pens and coloured everything with Copics.   I used Derwent brown pastel pencil and a Dove Blender pen on the background and after punching the corners with a Marvy punch I applied Pumice Stone Distress Ink to the edges.  I used my Perfect Paper Layers tools to cut the mats out of black and orange cardstocks and everything was layered and adhered with Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive.

I hope I've inspired you to come and play with us over at Smudgy Antics, pop on over and see what fab eye candy my fellow teamies have to share too!
See you there ;0)

Happy Stamping!
