"Killin' Time"

Welcome! Today the project that I am sharing with you was created for two awesome challenges. The first challenge is the Smudgy Antics Challenge "Dead Divas", the second challenge is in the Smeared And Smudged Group "Junk Funk Challenge". Okay, now for some details... The Dead Divas Challenge on the Smudgy Antics Blog is to create anything that you would like, use your imagination and only one rule... You MUST use a Smeared Ink Stamp! The Stamp that I have used is Anya from The Glam Vamps Digi Set. The Junk Funk Challenge is to be creative in using Staples on your creation, so I created a staple chain for around my image and one chain that dangles from each corner of the sentiment! Let me tell you, it was a bit of pain to sit and hook them all together, bend and squeeze each one shut... but that is me, once I get an idea in my head... I have to do it, no matter what! LOL!
