Smudgefest Day 3...Wicked Wednesday

I made it to Smudgefest Day 3!

Todays challenge is a color challenge! We were to use these wicked colors to create our projects for today: Pumpkin Orange, Mustardy Yellow, Dark Gray, & Deep Purple

*coloring must not be exact but close. We were also allowed to use neutrals.

I must say I struggled with this one.  I must have changed my project at least three times.  Here is my end result:
Grave Image: Smeared Ink's "Build a Zombie Alphabet" rubber stamp set
Grime Reaper: Delicious Doodles digi stamp
Sentiment: Smeared Ink's "Zombie Pinups" digi stamp set

The Reaper was printed on Copic X-Press it cardstock and colored with copic markers.  The grave was stamped on clay coated paper and colored with copics to give a wet, streaky effect.  The images were then fussy cut and scanned to my pc.  I made a digi layout with digi papers, assembled my scanned images into the layout, and then I added the very cool sentiment which pulls the whole thing together.  Whew!  I'm tired and going to bed now.  I made this with a couple of hours to spare.  For the heck of it, here is one of the other projects I made for this challenge:

This used an image from Smeared Ink's "Candy is Dandy" rubber stamp set.  I colored it with copic markers, scanned it, and made this layout.
