Smudgy Antics Weekly Challenge: REPTILE RAMPAGE

Welcome back for another challenge with Smudgy Antics!

The challenge theme this week is 
Reptile: 1.) Any various cold-blooded, usually egg-laying vertebrates of the class Reptilia (think snake, lizard, crocodile, turtle, dinosaur, or dragon).
Reptile:  2.) A person being regarded as despicable or treacherous.

Rampage:  Violent or excited behavior that is reckless, uncontrolled, or destructive.

We are asking you to incorporate the spirit of a reptile rampage into your project for the week.  There are several directions you can take this prompt.  You can use an image of a reptile or you can use papers or textures that resemble a reptile's skin, or in the case of a turtle, its shell.  You can throw caution to the wind and get reckless in the creation of your project by ripping, tearing, and distressing a project almost to the point of destruction while still maintaining an awesome piece.  This theme would be great for art journal pages too.  Show us, through your art, a time where you may have been reckless or on a rampage.  Too much?  How about doing a journal piece or ATC about someone or something you regard as despicable or treacherous?  If it is NOT EVIDENT as to how you used the challenge theme REPTILE RAMPAGE in your project, please explain it in your blog post.

Here is my take on the prompt:
(click image to enlarge)
I used "Dragon Love" from Smeared Ink's "Dragon Love digi set" as well as "Tiamat" from Smeared Ink's "Women of Power" digi set.
Everything was colored and assembled in PSE8.

Be sure to head over to Smudgy Antics to see more inspiration from the
