I am so excited to be able to put my very first post as a Smeared Ink DT member up!
I tried to make something extra special, and it kind of got out of control.
I started with a little wooden coffin.
I tried to die it with Tim Holtz aged wood ink, which turned my hands blue! (they are still blue btw)
I added some netting (from an orange bag.. I love to recycle)
I colored the fantabulous image "Frankenhottie" from Tiddly Inks.. made specifically for Smeared and Smudged.. (with my new watercolor pencils)
There was a little mistake when gluing her down. For some reason, most of my adheisives wouldn't work on the coffin, so I had to use my sticky glue.. It leaked ink through my paper and made her look kinda off.. But maybe that's just adding to her quirkiness..
I stickled her and tried to cover up most of the leakage..
Moving on to the inside..
can you hear the creaking?
I trapped a lil grumpie inside with some fairy dust. Hoping this will make him, not so grumpy. Or maybe it will give him special powers. Well have to wait and see.
