Hello friends and fiends. Today, I am sharing with you a project that I made for the Smeared & Smudged DT Throwdown. What’s that you ask? Well, you can check out the rules HERE, but basically, it’s a bunch of teams that are pitted against each other to see who has the coolest project in a set theme. My team is the Ali Kats, and we are Kathi, Gittery Katie and moi. The theme for this first go-around is “Paint and Splatter.” I love this challenge! I decided to do something I don’t do too often. I made a tag.
The Ali Kats knew we wanted to do at least one project featuring our Bombshell Stamps, (that’s what brought us together, after all!) and what better way to kick off the Throwdown? I went with my favorite (and first) Bombshell, Pirate’s Life. And I vamped her up. A lot.
Mmmmmm….someone just had a big meal. Look at the smear on her arm from wiping her mouth! Perhaps she should carry a napkin, or some Wet Ones….. I used gray and a pale skin color for her, to give her that death warmed over palor. You can see here that I painted my tag with green and gray acrylics. The red splatter is also acrylic, but done towards the end.
I went with a subtle splatter….the first bits that fly out when the neck is just bitten. 😉 My fabulous tree is from Tattered Angels, and the head stones and fence punches are from Martha Stewart. Did you notice that even my ribbon has blood splatter on it…printed that way!
My “Blood Rules” is from Inkadinkado. I had a lot of fun making this tag…and I can see how they can be rather addicting. Now….please go and vote for my team! The Ali Kats! I would love to win this first round. But, even if we don’t, this was a lot of fun, and an awesome idea from Smeared & Smudged. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
***I’ll be back later with a brand new Movie Magic Monthly Challenge! So please come back for another visit.
Ooh. You really embraced the spatter part of the challenge. Love it!
I also love her pale ghoulish color, the fence, and the tombstones.
Fabulous, albeit gory, card.

I really admire your control when applying the blood splatter to your project. I always have had a hard time with the whole "less is more" concept.
Beautiful tag, Alison. Good luck!
Great tag, Alison! Love the stamp and how you vamped her up, especially the red eyes. Fabulously artistic spatter and great die cuts. the ribbon is to die for! xxD
