Smudgy Antics Weekly Challenge - ANYTHING GOES

It's challenge time again over at Smudgy Antics.

Here is a blurb from the Smudgy Antic's blog:

This week's challenge theme is:

"We love when you guys and gals think outside of the box.  The more creative and inventive, the better!  You know those projects you WANT to make, but would be shunned from mainstream sites?  They are accepted here!  We get down and dirty.  We like it real, raw, and in your face!  Let your artistic expression fly free!"

In the spirit of artistic freedom, here is my creation:

It's a bit different, huh?  I know that whimsical and creepy don't really go together, but I said to Hell with it and did it anyway.  I used "Head shot" zombie from Smeared Ink's "Zombie Headshot" digi set.  She was colored digitally in PSE8 and added to an Itkupilli background.  The digi papers are from Crafty Chaos Designs.  The funky swirls are from some random digi stash I have.  I don't remember the source.

I decided to follow the card sketch on the "Very Sketchy" challenge over at  the Smeared and Smudged forum.
Here's a pic of the sketch:

The Smudgy Antics challenge goes through Saturday at midnight PST.  Head over to the blog to see more inspiration from the DT gals.  A Smeared Ink gift voucher is up for grabs! 

The sketch challenge and other challenges over at Smeared and Smudged goes on through the month.

What are you waiting for?  
Come play with us!
