Today for SMUDGEFEST, we were to make an ATC with the theme: Twisted.
Use a SMEARED INK image. My Mojo was a bit blank for a bit, but I finally came up with something!!  I'd like to also share with you, that my project yesterday was chosen for the winner (randomly) I was quite excited :)

 We all know "Curiosity Killed the Cat"

My TWIST is 2-fold...TWISTED sense of Humor, and the Baker's twine!
Kitty should have listened to her whiskers, and been careful where she stuck her head, tsk, tsk. LOL 
The ATC Background was received as a RAK. I stamped the STAMPIN' UP Cat (minus her head), and then placed the SMEARED INK Flying Skull over her neck. I made my own FLIES with Enamel accents and Stickles, both by RANGER, used my Notched corner punch (SU) and attached Black n white Baker's twine. The sentiment is from VIVALASVEGASSTAMPS.  Then attached a chipboard card to the back.
considering How Overwhelmed I felt, after seeing the AWESOME sample at SMUDGY ANTICS
I feel that this came out pretty well. I hope you all like it :)

Susan this is just awesome. When I looked at this I was reminded of my Mom's "Demon Cat"....I said to my self-Oh I know a cat with this Hissed at me every time I walked by him no matter how sweet I was to Thanks for playing along with Speedy's Friends Challenge. Hope you can play with us again this week.
