Smeared and Smudged Very Sketchy Challenge




Hello!  I recently joined the Smeared and Smudged Forum and found they also have forum challenges. Of course I had to jump in!  This one is a sketch one. I love sketches.

I used a skull and banner image from Octopode Factory.  I made the backround paper on glossy card stock with alcohol inks- spooky colors.  I used a piece of embossed black card stock for the image backing, and colored with copics and spica glitter pens.  The flowers are primas and misc pearls.  The sentiment if from a Tim Holtz sticker pack.

Challenges:
Alphabet Challenge Blog- skeletons, spiders, spooky
Art with No Boundaries- Halloween
