Smeared Ink Fabulosity on a Monday Morning!

Happy Monday Everyone!!

I was so excited this month that I received Killer Bo Peep to add to my Smeared Ink collection!!!
She's creepy, snarky and twisted all at the same time! My type of gal!! ;) I went with a color palette of black, red, and yellow. I stamped Bo in Momento Ink in Tuxedo Black and carefully colored her in with my Copic markers and red Sakura gel pen.

My card base is SU!'s Real Red followed by Tinkering Ink - Black and White. The yellow DP is also SU!.
I stamped Bo twice and trimmed out her hair bow and using 3-D foam adhesive added it on top of her existing bow for some added dimension.
I wanted to add some of my pom pom fringe but the card was too narrow for it to hang properly so I trimmed off the pom poms and added them in a little cluster on the right hand side. They, in some abstract way, look to me like little monsters with the strings that look like weird antennae.
I also used the mushroom stamp that comes with this awesome set. I colored them with my Copics as well and trimmed them apart setting them almost like Bo's body guards!
My final touch was adding some black pearls in the lower left hand corner to visually balance the weight of the red pom poms on the right.
I used the sentiment "Wanna Play?" which I love because it is OH so snarky!!

I hope you enjoyed my creation for today!!! Please come hang with us over at the Smeared Ink Forum. It is DEFINITELY the place to be!!

XOXO
