Smeared and Smudged Members Blog Hop

 Hello, All.
Today it is the Smeared and Smudged November Blog Hop
The theme is ALTER SOMETHING! No cards have to alter an object. Use your imaginations, it can be a can, box, coaster, book, creepmas ornament, etc. Also, don't forget the S&S rule that is has to be stamped somewhere (digi stamps are fine) – we love when you use Smeared Ink stamps, but it is NOT a requirement to participate.

If you have arrived here from Jean you are on the right track and you will now be hopping to Lisa

Well my altered item is a CD I have made into a 
Creepmas Ornament.

The image I have used is one of Teri's new Delicious Doodles: Skully Santa.

I have coloured him with Tim Holtz Distress Markers and used Twilight Glitter in his eyes for that touch of Creepmas sparkle lol.

I covered the cd with kandi core card I had embossed and distressed by sanding and just a little inking.  

I threaded some red ribbon between the layers as a hanger and attached some bells (they jingle when shaken!) 

On the back I used another circle of the same card and 
I had found this really rough green sandpaper (sanding paper?) among my bits and pieces of tools and whatnot and thought it would make a good
Creepmas tree so I just cut three triangles quite randomly from the really rough sandpaper and inked the edges with black soot. I attached a few stars and of course it has to be  skull at the top instead of a fairy!

My primitive, repurposed sandpaper tree!  Did I mention it was really rough?

Enjoy your hopping!    

Love and Peace, 
Vee xx
