YAY...It's the weekend....
don't they come round quickly?
I have a bit of a notebook obsession...
I make lists of lists....
so i need a copious supply of little notepads.
I found packs of them a while ago in one of our pound stores so
i'm working my way through putting decorative covers on them.
 I  used one of my all time favourite rubber stamps from 
 masked it and added a background and the word OBSESSION from
HEART WINGS rubber set.
Then I used ink and pencils to colour my front cover.

You only have a few days left to enter this months challenge....
why not make a project this weekend?
Thanks for visiting...see you again soon.

Bunny Blue and Kitty Too!

Howzit Everyone!
For today's DT inspiration I'm sharing two projects!
 First up here's an Easter Bunny altered domino magnet featuring Smeared Ink's Li'l Bunny Grumpie from the Occasions Li'l Grumpie rubber stamp set.  I just love this li'l Bunny to death!

Looks like Bunny Blue found himself a friend!
Any guesses on what I used to colour the domino?  Dying to find out?
Then stop by my DominoART blog tomorrow for an egg-citing reveal ;0)

"How PURRfectly wonderflandful to see you" she purred mischievously!
 I also want to share the wind-chime I made for our March Smeared and Smudged Member "Alice in Wonderland - MADNESS" Blog Hop!  As a huge Alice fan I had a blast creating this Cheshire Kitty diorama featuring Smeared Ink's Cheshire Cat and the mushroom from the Alice digi. 
Pop on over to my other blog, LeighSBDesigns, for all the info, photos and a little video clip!

I hope I've inspired you to get creative and there's still time to enter our current
Smudgy Antics Challenge so come join the fun!

Happy Stamping!

Tuesday Inspiration

Hello again! Rebecca is off being wonder woman this week (good luck with everything Rebecca!) so I'm doing an extra slot. I have got a couple of ATC's to share with you today. The first one I made using stamps from the Letterbox background set and the Holy City 2 set.  The second one I used stamps from Letterbox backgrounds and nymphs.

Skellie dance...


I´ve made a tag (again) lol. I had to try out something new so I did. Mixed texture paste that has sand in it and mixed it with black gesso and applied it to the surface of tag. Once dried I added perfect pearls powder and water with brush. The skellie image is a digi from Smeared Ink and is one from the Danse Macabre set.
Added some die cut rats and web.

It would be great if you took part in our monthly anything goes challenge and you can find the link on  the left hand side bar of the Smudgy Antics blog.

Thank you!

Sunday Inspiration with a Specimen

For todays DT Inspiration I have a large tag to share with you today. I have used The Man Digi Single from the Specimen Jar set as my focal image coloured up with copics for the tag. I created the background using DecoArt Media fluid acrylics, Die cuts and gilding wax. Full details are on my blog.
                                                                 Close up of the detail.
I hope you are inspired to join in with us for this months challenge. The link is on the sidebar to your left. We'd love to see what you create with Smeared Ink stamps. Do come back tomorrow for more inspiration from the DT.
