Smudgy Antics Weekly Challenge - LEVEL UP!

The challenge this week over at Smudgy Antics is "LEVEL UP". 

 We were asked to use layers in our projects. 
 Here is my take on the challenge:
(click on images to enlarge)

I used "Sinister Zombie" from Smeared Ink's "Zombie Headshot" digi set.  I colored the image digitally and printed it out 4 times and did some fussy cutting and decoupage.  In some areas I layered the cuts to elevate parts of the face and hair and in other areas I cut out several layers for an indentation (the wounds).  I used silicone glue for added dimension and sealed everything with diamond glaze.  For an additional layered effect, I used a cricut cut from the "Happy Hauntings" cartridge to make a frame and mounted this onto two layers of cardstock.

 Here is a close shot so you can see the indentation of the wounds and the elevated areas of the face and hair.  Sorry for the glare.  it's hard taking pictures of a shiny surface!

Another close-up shot at a different angle for less glare.

For more inspiration from the Smeared Ink DT and to check out prize information for the challenge, head over to the Smudgy Antics blog.
