Day 10 of THE 31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN WITH SMEARED AND SMUDGED

I'm Lady Brayton.  Welcome to my blog!

Today is Day 10 of the 31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN

Here is my offering:
(click image to enlarge)
I made an ATC.  I started with my white 2.5" x 3.5" blank and stamped some bloody broken glass (I think Inkadinkado?) and some splotches and blotches (Smeared Ink's "Inky Dreams" rubber set) with Brick Red Distress Ink.  I then smudged yellow and orange inks around the paper.  I stamped Smeared Ink's rubber "Raven 1" (from their "Quoth the Raven" set) with Versa Mark embossing ink and heat embossed black Zing embossing powder.  

The shop only has the Digi version of this set, but you will be able to get it in rubber if you join Smeared Ink's Rubber Club. All the popular retired sets are coming back and will only be available to club members.

 Once the embossing powder cooled, I went over the image with silver marker and then wiped the marker off the embossed areas.  I did this to tone down the yellow and reds that were popping through the feathers.

The MS drippy goo punch bit into some edges and then I cut some random areas with scissors.  I mounted my chopped and punched little piece of art onto  some shimmery black cardstock.  I popped this baby into PSE8 only to add a watermark and a white outline so it will show on my black background.

Thanks for looking at my work and thanks for the kind comments!

  6. Those colors really do pop! I love the embossed raven -I never do that anymore and it's enjoyable to see all the embossing going on here. Of course a lot of it is folders which I don't have clue about but still...The silver marker was an inspired choice to eliminate the unwanted color!
