Smudgy Antics Weekly Challenge: COLOR CHALLENGE

This week at Smudgy Antics, we have a COLOR challenge for you.  Use at least three of the colors in the sample below.

Here is my humble offering:

Sorry about the watermark through my image, but unfortunately there are folks out there that are stealing peoples' projects and card fronts and giving them away as free printable items on pinterest and some are even selling card fronts obtained in this manner on etsy.  It's a shame we can't just make and show art without worrying about theft.

I used the image "Skull Keeper" from Smeared Ink's "Dragon Love" digi set.
Everything was colored and assembled in PSE8.

While Smudgy Antics offers awesome weekly challenges and prizes, the Smeared and Smudged forum offers month long challenges for those that may not have as much crafting time available. There are also monthly blog hops, matchbook and atc swaps, holiday swaps, etc.  If you join the forum you are sure to meet new friends and network with some very talented individuals.

Now that I'm done babbling, be sure to head over to the Smudgy Antics Blog for more inspiration 
and then go and get crafting!

  10. I absolutely love your work and this is an amazing project. I especially love the shading on your dragon.

    I am sorry to hear about the possibility that people may taking your Art. It is a shame that some people can be so pathetic and take what is not theirs. Unfortunately this kind of thing ruins it for all of us. I do not mind your watermark at all as I probably more that most understand the need for it.

    Thank you for sharing this with us on Art With No Boundaries. It's always a pleasure to come and see what you have created.
