Thursday Inspiration with " Angel of Death "

Today is the last day to get your entries in for the current  Anything Goes Challenge at
 Smudgy Antics for February. You have until midnight PST today  to get your entries in before the current challenge closes.
For my project I decided to create a Booklet that houses an ATC in it's own frame ( I love creating books from scratch ). I used the smeared ink Digi  Angel of Death. . I coloured him up in tones of Red and cool greys using my copics. I then scanned into photoshop and printed off an ATC size and a larger size which I attached to chipboard  and set aside. The ATC was then attached to mountboard and also set aside.The book was constructed from scratch using mountboard and covered with black cardstock. I then stamped and heat embossed two panels for the front and inside left cover of the book. These were then attached and the larger chipboard mounted image applied to the front cover. A quote was then designed in photoshop, printed and attached to the embossed panel on the left side of the booklet. A deep frame was contructed from Chipboard to house the ATC and given a coat of DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic in red.This was then attached to the right side of the book at the same time as a piece of black looped ribbon which sits under the ATC for easy removal.

Thanks for stopping by today and don't forget to get your entries in today before the challenge closes.

Wednesday Inspiration

I was totally gutted when I realised that my comment hadn't gone through for the bloody valentine hop, so instead I'm sharing what I made today. It's a double page spread with a tag insert, the stamps I used are from the Bloody Valentine set and the Love Li'l Grumpies set.

There are only a few days left to get your entries into this months challenge. You can join in the fun by adding your Smeared Ink makes here

Today's calendar inspiration - July/August

Another page in my calendar, halfway now! =) For this page I've used another of Alexandria Serrano's digistamps Geisha and colored her with my promarkers and added glitter pen to her hair pins. Shaded around her and added white pen to highlight her hair.
Found an Asian designed paper and cut out some for the background and cut out a dragon for decorations, from the same paper. Mounted it on a paper I found in my stash and think it work fine together. =)

Hope you will join in on our monthly challenge, the only thing you need is to use Smeared Ink stamps on your creation, rubber or digi.

A bit of POE on Sunday

Its the dragons turn to post today,
any of you who had a look at the February members blog hop
will know I played with stamps and clay for it,
making 3 projects but only showing 2 on the day.....
I kept POE for today.
 The hope theme was CRACKED AND BROKEN,
all the stamps used are SMEARED INK... including the word 'broken'...
this was another clay piece i had to actually break to get the required 'crack'.
I am amazed by the detail that you can get with these stamps..... look at the photo below... 
SMEARED INK STAMPS are quite honestly SUPERB quality.
Thanks for stopping by today....
there'll be another project from another designer tomorrow....
Don't forget to get your projects into our 
ANYTHING GOES challenge, February is a short month so times running out!

Quirky Friday

Hey all
So I love being able to give everyone something a bit silly and quirky at times. Not always so dark and serious.  So today for my DT inspiration I have a cute card that I feel speaks for itself.

So I found.this totally awesome ribbon. It's like fishnet burlap. Totally great texture. 

Hope you likee! Have a great Friday!
