Saturday BATerfly.

Good Morning. I'm here with your Saturday Inspiration in the form of a BATerfly. Yes you heard right. A Fabulous image of a bat crossed with a butterfly. You can find BATerfly in the Smeared Ink Shop.

I decided to frame this little beauty in a cheap plastic frame I altered.

Happy Stamping.

Sorry for the late post today....
Poor Shell, whose turn it is today is stuck in her car that refuses to take her home.
She'll add all the details about this gorgeous ATC later on tonight.
Until then you'll just have to admire the picture :) 

Thank you BD for posing this for me. I had so much fun making this ATC, I started by colouring the stamp with a mix of stampin up markers and distress ink pens. I then stamped that onto some white cars, that was then layered onto some blue card with a few strips of washi tape. The rubber set I used for this was the letterbox one. There is just under a week now to get your entries in for this month.

Mine and only mine

I found this fabulous Dragon image and just had to make something with it, it's called Skull Keeper and it was so much fun to color in many different green shades and I added glitter and pearl maker for the eyes. Did some shading on the skulls too, that was fun! =)

Just found papers that matched and hopefully makes the dragon stand out a little too, so used an Asian inspired paper and a matching background paper from another kit.

So hope you will enjoy today's card and join on in the fun in our Anything Goes challenge here at Smudgy Antics! =) 

Don't forget to use a Smeared Ink image on your creation! =)

Voodoo Wednesday

Hello friends!
Wow, what an amazing project by Leigh yesterday.  Beautiful-ness!
Well if you have a project with a Smeared Ink image on it, get it in this months Anything Goes Challenge.  We, the DT, love seeing those creative projects.

I love notebooks of all kinds.  So when I sat down and started stamping, it just so turned out to be a notebook.  I have used stamps from the Unmounted Rubber sets Voodoo and MorteBackground Letterbox is a Current Rubber Club Stamp set.

"Grandmaster" Altered Pencil Holder

I hope everyone is having a great week so far!  Here's my DT inspiration for you today!  
I've had this very versatile Tombow "store display" marker holder in my studio for many years.  I'm calling it a pencil holder for want of a better word but I use it daily for various purposes like to stand projects in while they dry or carry some coloured pencils or markers to my desk.  I've been wanting to do 'something' to pretty it up and I finally did it, haha!    It's also the perfect compliment to my 2015 daily planner I altered earlier this year!

I used all of the stunning chess piece Smeared Ink digis called Grandmaster by Teri Sherman.

 Please stop by my blog, LeighSBDesigns, for more info on my project!
I hope I've inspired you to come and play in our monthly challenges ;0)  The link to our current challenge is over there in the left side bar!

April 16th was our monthly Members Blog Hop and this month's theme was "Decorate a Real Egg".  Start your hop on my blog if you missed it coz all the creations were eggstra-special! 
This is the egg sculpture I made using a real chicken egg and wish bone!

 Happy Stamping!

I love leather!

So I have been mixing it up a bit recently. And I have been loving it. Try something new and unexpected.  Believe me, it's so fun to be able to look at a new side of your creativity. I have been going crazy with stamping on leather. I have made a whole bunch out of them but you are going to have to keep checking back to see if I post one. You never know when it's going to happen.
Don't limit yourself to materials!  Use canvas, denim, cotton, anything you have. Sew it all yourself or buy it already made.  Or even better spice up something you already have around the house.  (Hu Shell) Ok so here is my fun little coin purse featuring one of the beautiful butterflies from the Specimen Jar rubber set.

See you all next week. And don't forget to get your entries in for the current challenge. Link it up and have fun.
