SMUDGEFEST-day 2 "Terrifying Tuesday"

Today's challenge over at SMUDGY ANTICS is to use the the scariest stamp or image you have from SMEARED INK.  I only have a handful, so that was tough for me, but I think I came close.
I am also entering this Card in the "anything goes" challenge at:
  CRAFT YOUR PASSION
Allsorts challenges
Come and Get it challenges 
Inspire me Fridays 
Digis with Attitude! #32
Digi Doodle Shop Challenges
Craft us Crazy

I also combined this challenge with the one at "Do You Stack Up?" To use brown,orange and yellow.

I APOLOGIZE for the image being crooked and shadow-y darker-ness in the corner where the dead birds (they are raised on foam squares)are...I scanned the card and took the coward's way out, LOL!  Lately 90% of the photos I take of my creations really suck, so...back to the scanner for now. Plus today was a really bad day for me all around.

Ok, hope you like it:

"SORRY, I couldn't wait for Dinner!!"

Sunflower Yellow, Only orange and Chocolate Chip card stock by STAMPIN' UP, Markers also by SU.
SMEARED INK digis- "Anya" from the Glam Vamps collection, and RIP bird.
Sentiment computer generated using the "Halloween HodgePodge" font.
Embossing folder by TIM HOLTZ for SIZZIX
Misc gold paint pen, and foam squares used under the birds. 

I colored the birds in such a way as to look like the Vamp ripped into their chest to get the heart and all the blood.
 I left "Anya's skin white, as vamps are supposed to be pretty close to Albinos...I even shadowed her in palest blue, finger tips, toes and lips are all blue, and then there is "cherry cobbler" marker used for the blood on her and on the birds.
