Smeared Ink Monday!!!

Hey All!!

I'm back...I've miss you all!!

I had to stop hopping on the 31 days because it was just too much!!  =)  I couldn't keep up with my uber talented SI sisters!! 

But alas...I am here with my Monday creation.  I'm using one of my new sets...As Death.  I chose the image that I am calling "The Train To Hell".  Some of you laugh...others need an explanation. 

I inked my image (gorgeous!) in Red Poppy Brilliance ink and heat set it.    I added the sentiment using PTI's individual letters to spell out "The Train to"  and then stickers for HELL. I then used an acrylic overlay that fit perfectly over the main panel.  I then chose a piece of my Martha Stewart Halloween paper in the same tones and zig zag stitched it down.

I then chose black cardstock as my base.  I adhered my existing panels to the cardbase and then went through my rather 'cheeky' chipboard pieces one that says "celebrate" and the other is a train being pulled by a skull which is a brad.  Both are popped up on 3-D foam adhesive.

After adhering everyrthing down I then heavily distressed the edges to give the card one more layer of dimension.

I hope you enjoy!!!

Please come hang with us at the forum!!  It's a super rad place to be!
