Today's Smudgefest challenge is "Twisted Thursday - make an ATC with a twist". Well, I thought and I thunk and here's what I came up with. Yup, it's another Grumpie. Although this wasn't planned at the beginning, I'm now hoping to complete Smudgefest using all Grumpie images. This one is Shot Grumpie, altthough I've erased the arrow. Not only does he have his little antennae all in a twist, I've used the "Twisted" stamp from the same set to create my background, by twisting it upside down and/or back-to-front and stamping it all over. (Mirror and flip was the closest I could think of for "twisting" in this scenario). The I found a tutorial for some Twisted Paper Flowers, so I made some of them, and finally I twisted a few strands of ribbon together to create the hanging strap bit. Oooh, and I also added a twisty spiral behind the image. :D The Grumpie stamps and sentiment are available from Smeared Ink.
These are the challenges I'd like to enter:
Sketch and Stash - sketch 67. My neglected stash items are the ribbons. I know where the organza one came from, and I bought that late last year, but the other one, with the velvet strip, I have absolutely no idea when or where I got it, but I "think" it may have been on sale in a local shop about two years ago.
