Smudgetastic!


Are you ready to fill your week with the dark and creepy? Of course you are, it's Monday, and that means you'll all be chomping at the bit for a new Macabre Monday challenge at the Haunted Design House.
Ok, my little pretties... your challenge this week:

Smudgetastic
You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based project using images that have been colored/rendered with charcoal, pencils, pastels, or chalk. (similar digital techniques allowed) And this week the prize will be some digis from our very newest Minion, Andrea. We've all worked with her images this week and it's been such fun! Mine's a 4x4 and it isn't nearly as dark and beautiful as some of the other pieces, AND you can barely see my smudged colouring, but it does make me laugh, which I always enjoy when crafting :P Papers are from the Creature Feature set at Crafty Chaos Designs.
Here are the challenges I'd like to enter:
Paper Minutes - sketch
Colour Q - dark red, bright red, dark green, yellow
Paper Sundaes - distressing
4x4 Friday - winged men
The Stamp Man - distressing
One Stitch At A Time - anything goes
Gingerloft Challenges - things that fly
Stampin' Royalty - things with wings
