Smudgy Antics Weekly Challenge - BINGO

It's Monday so that means it's challenge time!

This week's challenge at Smudgy Antics is BINGO. 

 Participants MUST use three in a row from the grid below.  You may get your three in a row up, down, across, or diagonally.

A Smeared Ink Stamps gift voucher is up for grabs!

For my creation I used embossing, skull, and metal.
(click image to enlarge)

I started with black cardstock and heat embossed a TH spider web with silver glitter embossing powder.  I then printed a skull from Smeared Ink's "Anatomy 101" digi set and printed it 6 times on white cardstock.  I fussy cut the skull and glued the layers with silicone glue for a dimensional effect and dipped the dried piece into melted UTEE for a glass effect.  I learned this technique from my friend, Black Dragon.  I mounted my wicked skull to the cardstock.  

Now for the metal.  I used metal tape (you can buy this in the hardware store), stuck it to cardstock, and dry embossed it with my cuttlebug.  The first layer I painted black and wiped some off, then sealed with modpodge.  The second layer of metal was left bright and gleaming.  I further mounted this on more black cardstock and called it finished.

Head on over to Smudgy Antics for more inspiration by the Smeared Ink DT.
