This month on the Smeared and Smudged Forum, The Greeting Farm is one of our challenge sponsors; and they were so very generous to allow us to use some of their super cool images for today's hop. Plus, you have a chance to win one of these images today by leaving a comment at each stop along the hop, and at the TGF Blog when you're done hopping.
If you're looking for more chances to win TGF images, visit our forum and join in some of our challenges! Smeared and Smudged is a super friendly and cool place to be, and although some of our art tends to lean toward the alternative, vintage, or gothic side of things, we are truly a very diverse group and embrace all styles and levels of stampers.
At the bottom of my post you will find a list of all the hop participants. Be sure to visit each of them to see their wicked projects. If this is your first stop, you'll want to check out all of them. If you're here from another hop participant, just continue where you left off, and be sure to visit The Greeting Farm at the end!
If you know me, you know I LOVE altering things and today's project is no exception. Although, this IS one of the few times I've worked with a digi image. I have to say, I'm liking them more and more! I chose to work with the "Royal Pain" cake girl, which is a TGF image that I adore.
My project is a Zombie Queen earring holder that I made for my 10 year old daughter. Here are a couple different pics. The first is without jewelry, and the second has some earrings hanging so you can see how it should be used.
I had to "darken" up my image to use her as a zombie, so I started by coloring with markers and prisma pencils, then adding shadows with black. I scraped my fingernails across her skin to make it look rotted, and also added some white highlights with a gel pen.
The frame is painted and I added glitter to the wet paint. Then I used some green punchinella to make the insert for the jewelry. My zombie letters and my "Have your cake, EAT IT too!" saying were printed from my computer, and the "Queen" is chipboard letters that I glittered as well. After pulling it all together to take a look, I decided to break up the black by adding a strip of white paper to the left side that had old paint on it. Then I attached everything and as a final touch, added the black bow in the corner.
I hope you enjoyed taking a look,I LOVE reading comments so please let me know what you think. And now, here's the list of the Smeared and Smudged DT blogs! Have fun hopping!
