It’s time for another Member Blog Hop at Smeared & Smudged! I love these hops, because there is always a ton of creep-tastic goodness to check out. And this month is super special, because we have a fang-tasic sponsor! In addition to sponsoring our Oh! The Horror and Rock-N-Rolla challenges, Strange Skin is also sponsoring this hop! One lucky winner (participant or commenter) will win this:Two rad images! And, since I am the very lucky sister of Pam, one of the 2 owners of Strange Skin (the other is Jorge…Pam’s boyfriend), I have all of their digis. So I decided to use the key for today’s project. And because it’s just freakin’ cool! Oh! And we also have a challenge for this hop. To use green and brown. Perfect for this key! I kept it kinda simple because the key has so much detail on it. I used my watercolor markers to color it in. I adore this image. Then I paired it with a sentiment from Verve, and I used a texture stamp from Smeared Ink’s Quoth the Raven set. The little swirls with the sentiment are from Autumn Leaves. Here’s a close up, so that you can see all of the shading I did and the detail in the key. You can click on any of my pictures to see them bigger. I added some texture by using Distress Stickles on the brown paper. A wee bit of sparkle, but mostly texture. Just what the card needed! I hope you enjoyed my offering for today. be sure to visit the rest of the hoppers and show some love…then you’ll have a chance at winning the 2 Strange Skin digis! Have an inspiring day!Tori http://ndustrial-lemon.blogspot.com/Alison http://alisonsrandomthoughts.blogspot.com/ (me!)Kelli http://cajunstampingqueen.blogspot.com/Lady Brayton http://www.ladybrayton71.blogspot.com/Sugar http://sugscardsnmore.blogspot.com/Black Dragon http://lynsblogger.blogspot.com/Monica http://giddygreetings.com/Kapree http://kc-consultant.blogspot.com/Alex http://www.paperandstring.blogspot.com/Tiffany http://bkfastattiffanys.blogspot.com/Jane http://jcocraft.blogspot.com/Meredith http://www.papercanteen.com/Dianne http://dkspinner.blogspot.com/Judy http://creatingartwithheart.blogspot.com/ Lisa http://www.ldfdesign.blogspot.com/Kimberly http://www.heartflywithpassion.com/
