Flowing Friday - Smudgefest day 5 of 7

I'm not sure I will ever get through the 31 Days of Halloween this year.  
Heck!  I'm having a hard time making it through Smudgefest!  I am determined to make it through while still making good to my other commitments.  Wish me and the rest of the gals playing luck and fortitude to finish this grand challenge in hopes of winning the grand prize.
Too bad we can't bribe Mr. Linky!

Our challenge for today, day 5 of 7, is to use a flowing medium.
This is what the powers that be had to say:

The Challenge:


Create a project using a flowing medium. Some examples could be watercolor, liquid ink, liquid glues, thinned out acrylics, etc.... use your imagination and let the juices flow!

I decided to use my Dylusions Spray inks along with some stencils and some plain water.  It makes for a fun, drippy mess.  You can see the various stencils and ink in my ATC below.

The Skeleton hand is an old rub-on from Creative Imaginations.  The word "Trouble" was printed on my pc and pasted to the ATC.  The Smeared Ink stamp is the Spider from the "Killer Bo Peep's Build a Garden" rubber set.  The rubber set is retired, but you can get the spider digi here or you can purchase the whole set in digi form here.  I used embossing ink and black embossing powder on the spider and then heat set the image.  After coloring with copic markers, I fussy cut this scary spider out and popped him up with pop-dots.  The black and white edging was done with my Sharpie paint markers.

Be sure to check out Smudgy Antics to see the other amazing submissions for Smudgefest.  There is still time to play in the fortnight challenge as well.  The theme is fussy cutting so why not combine that challenge with one of the Smudgefest challenges and double your chances of a win?

It is already tomorrow so I'd better link this and get to bed!
See ya when I wake and finish breakfast!
