Wicked Wednesday at Smudgefest!

Hi folks.... yes, I'm sorry, yet another post from me today! That's a busy Wednesday for you!
However, this is day three of Smudgefest and if you're not sure what I'm talking about, scroll down for my day one and two posts or pop over to Smudgy Antics for a look at the fabulous inspiration from their DT and the other entrants. There are prizes every day and a grand prize which you're only eligible for if you enter all seven challenges!

Today's brief - Wicked Wednesday - is a colour challenge and as normal you need to use a Smeared Ink stamp somewhere on your project. Here is the wicked colour scheme -


And here is my card. I'm afraid it's not very 'wicked' but I have used all the colours (i think!) and one of the Smeared Ink Goth Fairies for the front of it. I haven't put a sentiment on here, I'll wait and do that when I send the card. The papers used are free papers from Pixel Scrapper matted onto black pearlescent paper and layered up on a 6x6 card base.

I have finished the card with some black seam binding and a bow using black and sea peacock ribbon with some mulberry paper flowers and a black fancy flower. The blue dots are shiny and self adhesive from the bottom of my stash.

Not very wicked but something a bit menacing about that fairy! Also, my colouring is not very good today - need to invest in better paper for colouring, adding that to my shopping list now!

I will enter this card into the following challenges - 
Smudgy Antics - Smudgefest Day 3
Smudgy Antics - Use Fussy Cutting
Left of Centre - LOC theme
Through the Craftroom Door - Anything Goes
Make it Monday - Anything Goes
Digi Sketch Challenge - Anything Goes
Avenue 613 Create - Anything Goes/Use a Sentiment.

Thanks for looking!
