Macabre monday x 2 weeks...and Smeared ink Dragons day

I have had a crazy 10 days...sorry i missed last weeks MACABRE MONDAY POSTING... it was to use DALI as your inspiration.... this weeks new challenge is.......

"Necro Neckware"

You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based art piece that could be turned into a pendant! Everyone is encouraged to play along for fun and Gruesome Twosome status, but their own original artwork is necessary to win the prize. And WHAT A PRIZE IT IS!
Heres my offering..... a STEAMPUNK skull.... i drew the skull ..its just shades with a 4B pencil... i scanned it to the puter and printed t out small enough to fit into these mounts....

I made 1x brooch and 2x pendants.... please come and play along....I shall enter these pendants and image into the following challenges.... STEAMPUNK ANYTHING GOES ANYTHING GOES ANYTHING GOES

Below is the DALI inspired piece i made.... i drew a Dali-esque skul, rose, and melting clock... scanned that to the puter and made a small image into a pendant..... i coloured the background blue to just make it feel more DALI....

then of cause i had to make the box to put it in....

i shall enter is piece in the following challenges.... DECORATE A BAG OR BOX ANYTHING BUT A CARD ANYTHING GOES

this is a better look at the pendant..... and the necklace i made to hang it from.

Its my Wednesday to post on the SMEARED INK DT blog ......... today i have one of the digi CREATURE FEATURE images to share with ya..... these images are wonderful.... i sooooooooooooo wanna make a book with them, but for now its just an 8''x8'' layout. I used black white and pink.... i must be going girly in my old age.... gems ribbon and feathers.... really girly!
I cut the deaf signs out of some paper i had to spell out 'ink'.... did loads of distressing.... and ended up with something pink i actually like!

I shall enter this in the following challenges.....


Thanks for visiting.... i hope to be back more often soon.... nan is on the mend... well a bit better than she was.... but i do now have to establish a new care routine taking into account how much more work is involved.

Thanks for visiting me... i hope to be back soon love lynx
