DominoART Challenge #3: Week 3 Scary Half-O-Ween Playing Cards!

Hello Dominoians!

Happy Friday and welcome to week 3 of DominoART's 3rd Challenge - Scary Half-O-Ween Playing Cards!

 If you're just joining us for the first time today then let me quickly tell you about our spooktacular event happening all through May!  DominoART is celebrating 15 Days of Half-O-Ween sponsored by Lost Coast Designs!  There's still some open spots if you want to have your scary creations featured on DominoART during the event.  There's prizes up for grabs!  All the details are in the Day 1 post.

AND...On June 4 I'm taking part in the Smeared Ink Skull Appreciation Day blog hop on my blog, Leigh S-B Designs and here on DominoART too where we are making an event of it by featuring various projects by D'ART readers!  Read all about it HERE and sign up!

Now on to week 3 of
 DominoART Challenge #3
Scary Half-O-Ween Playing Cards
Sponsored by Smeared Ink!
Smeared Ink

The featured game piece for Challenge #3 is Playing Cards and because May is Half-O-Ween here on DominoART I challenge you to create anything you want with a scary or macabre or spooky-cute theme!  You MUST use a real playing card(s) of any shape in your creations.  You can combine other game pieces as embellishments too.  This challenge will end May 22 at 7pm PST so you've got plenty of time to enter!

Submit your scary creations via the inlinkz collection at the bottom of this post or on the WEEK ONE post if you'd like to look back at what my DominoARTists created to inspire you!  

The winner will receive a fabulous full sheet of Smeared Ink rubber called Urban Decay!

For your inspiration today I'm sharing a spooktacular creation titled 'Death Cards' by DominoARTist Black Dragon!

Here's Black Dragon's story that inspired this scary piece....My 'old' Grandad who died when I was in my 20's was very superstitious and believed that the Ace and Queen of spades dealt in the same hand was a death omen.  I have used two Smeared Ink images from ''As Death'' and the raven from 'Holy City''.... two of the digi sets that will be discontinued shortly (see below for the flier). The two playing cards are covered in texture paste with 'findings' embedded, painted black then gilding paste rubbed over. The 3 images and the 'A' and Queen's face are in areas I left semi clean....then used a crackled paint technique over.

Grab these Smeared Ink digital stamp images now before they're gone forever!

Now it's your turn!  I can't WAIT to see your entries!!!
Submit your scary creations via the inlinkz collection at the bottom of this post or on the WEEK ONE post!
