Smeared and Smudged May Member Blog Hop

I was getting back on track, getting organised, was ahead with my work so I thought, hey, why not sign up for the Smeared and Smudged member blog hop, ATC swap and Fatpage swap for May... So I did. And I didn't write it in my to do list. Therefore, I've combined the whole lot into one post for the Blog Hop - my swappees don't know who they are so it will still be a surprise when they arrive! I hope!
The Blog hop theme is Anything Goes so my projects work, which is great! The theme for the Fatpage Swap is 'Horror' and at the moment I am watching Grimm - binge watching on Netflix is my favourite thing!! This image on the front of my Fatpage is from Smeared Ink and i've used Distress Inks and blending tool to colour her. I've gone with a watery background - the Sheena Douglas swirls reminding me of seaweed and the pebbles on the floor of the ocean are Inkylicious stamps. The sentiment is from HOTP. This iamge reminds me of the 'La Llarona' episode of Grimm where the woman with long flowing hair steals children and eventually drowns herself!
The reverse side of my page is 'Walking Dead' inspired!! The image is Smeared Ink with the Barbed wire stamp from Visible Image reminding me of the prison yard in the show! She's a bit cuter than TWD zombies, but hey ho. The sentiment is also VI and I've used a Webster's Pages DP for background. The embossing is a Tim Holtz folder with DI blended onto it.
The theme for the ATC swap was Halloween and I signed up for two. I've used 'Crafty Stamps' images and the sentiments and banner are from My Mind's Eye. Again the background is Distress Inks. I've finished with Diamond Black stickles on the web and spider body.

Here is the blog roll for the hop, please start back with Black Dragon or if you're following the roll, your next stop is Jane

Just a Sentiment with Crafting By Designs

Good morning! Time for a new challenge at Crafting By Designs and this week we want to see the Sentiment as the main focus for your project.
I have used this one from Inky Impressions, our sponsor this week, and gone with a center stepper card. My papers are from the Craftwork Cards 'Velvet Plum' collection and the card blank is also Craftwork Cards.. I have die cut flowers from the papers and some others using my Cameo and added candi to the centers. The black dots are liquid pearls to finish.
Thanks for looking!

Extra Inspiration for SLS Lines

I am loving the images over in the SLS Lines Etsy shop and I had to do something with this scary Skull!
I have printed him, covered the teeth with Glossy Accents to give those pearly whites a bright shine. The skull I've used some Tim Holtz Distress Inks on foam applicators to colour him. The 'firey' parts, I've used my Burnt Orange Promarker.
The DP is from my current favourite DCWV Eek-A-Boo Stack and the 'What do you fear?' sentiment is from Create with TLC.
