Day 1: Bloody Valentine Blog Hop with Smeared & Smudged!

Howzit Everyone!
For the next 3 days we at the Smeared and Smudged forum are getting down right dark and twisty with our annual Bloody Valentine Blog Hop!  You probably arrived here from my teamie, Fiona, if not then start your hop at the beginning...the blog roll is below!

While I've been in the middle of a MAJOR art study clean out and tidy up I've been happily designing and creating in my Photoshop CS6 and here's my first digi project for the hop which is also one of my Smeared Ink design team projects for this week.


 Smeared Ink recently released a new gorgeous digi set called The Keepers and I used the First Keeper for today's project, here's a closer look at her.


The middle image and the Bloody Valentine sentiment are also SI digis from the Bloody Valentine set.  I started off with one of Smeared Ink's digi papers from the Slasher pack for the background.  I coloured the digi images in Photoshop and erased the backgrounds, added various effects filters and a lot of manual manipulation, colouring and shading, etc and and layered them both over the background.  I also created a fun ghost effect with the number eleven, which is a significant number that keeps coming up in my family AND is also for Feb 11, of course ;0)

Thanks for stopping by, your next stop on the hop is my other blog, DominoART, enjoy ;0)
