Well, its day two of the annual Smudgefest at Smudgy Antics and the theme for today is Terrifying Tuesday - choose the scariest Smeared Ink image and create!
So I dont have a lot of Smeared Ink images so I have spent ages today on the Smeared Ink site and finally chose a scary image - Defrosting Skullman Snowman!
This is the image of a snowman defrosting and a skeleton emerging from that melting snow... reminds me very much of the Frosty the Snowman Christmas song... but not in a good way! The very thought that the snowman at the bottom of your garden could come to life and come to get you is pretty terrifying!... So I made a creepy Christmas Card from it!
I printed some of the lyrics - 'He was made of snow but the children know how he came to life one day' - on repeat and printed them out, used Old Paper distress ink to colour it and used it behind the image along with some green damask paper from DoCrafts Gorjuss range. I coloured the image with promarkers, mainly the cool greys with some orange/browns for the carrot and branches.
I will enter this card into the following challenges -
