It’s Smeared and Smudged Hop Time!

It’s that time again. Time for the Smeared and Smudged monthly member blog hop!  Our theme this month was “WHAT ARE YOU SCARED OF?”  We were supposed to share our phobias.

There really aren’t that many things I’m scared of, but the one thing that creeps me out beyond all else is CENTIPEDES!  This is partly to blame on the fact that I watched The Wrath of Khan too many times as a small child.(remember the things they put in their ears?)EEEK!

So here is my project, featuring one of these disgusting creatures…

I used Distress inks and my brayer for the background.  I used the Grate stamp from the Quoth the Raven set from Smeared Ink in white and black inks.  The nasty critter was a public domain image I found on wikimedia and colored with my Copics.

This also goes along with the current Smudgy Antics Anything Goes challenge.

Thanks for looking!

Happy hopping!

Haha! I was thinking exactly what Ike wrote. I can see you reading in bed late at night and drifting off as the bookmark falls out onto your chest and scares you half to death! I hate those creepy crawlies too! I won't even let my cats go near them. I make my hubbs squish them! Wonderful piece! Thanks for sharing and thanks for playing along with Smudgy Antics :)

That is a great looking bookmark. I cannot stand those things either but I had a millipede as a pet as a child. How many people can say that? LOL

Croms' Cubby Hole said...

What a great bookmark, and the satisfying bit would be squishing him between pages as you shut the book for the night. TFS your phobia with us on both the hop and at Smudgy Antics this week

Lorraine said...

Ooh I hate centipedes, too, lol! Love your bookmark background and that is a cool image - but I think it would freak me out opening my book again and again to find it staring out at me, lol!
