Good morning Peeps and welcome to Day 1 of SMUDGEFEST 2015 hosted by SMEARED INK. For 7 days I will be (hopefully) making a project that fits in with the daily Theme and also contains a SMEARED INK image.
Here are the rules:
*Each morning from August 3rd through 9th, a new challenge will be posted. It will contain that day's theme and prize information.
*To participate, you must make a project that fits the theme and add it to that day's post using Inlinkz. The link to add your entry will be located at the bottom of each post. Your project must be linked by midnight of the same day. Your link must go straight to the post on your blog containing your project, not your blog home page.
*Your project can be anything (card, scrapbook page, altered or 3-d item, etc) as long as it is handmade and stamped somewhere with either a rubber or digital stamp. All digital projects are allowed if it fits the theme. Feel free to think outside the box and have fun with your project! We are all about looking at things differently and look forward to the variety of projects we are sure to see.
*You must use AT LEAST 1 Smeared Ink image on your project to qualify for the daily prize drawing. You are allowed to use anything else that you like. If you just want to play along and aren't worried about qualifying for the prize, you do not have to include a Smeared Ink image.
*The daily winner will be chosen by random number and revealed later the next day in a separate post (not the daily theme post).
Create a project that showcases a piece of metal! It can range from metal scrapbook embellishments, to paper clips, to items you would find at a hardware store. Decorate a metal object, or cut up a soda can. Use your imagination!
Here is my piece today using INKY DREAMS on the background and OCCASIONS GRUMPIES rubber stamps for my main image.
My background is gold metallic card and the stamp was inked with embossing ink and then stamped and covered in rainbow effect embossing powder and heated up. I then covered it with 2 coats of extra thick UTEE and it now looks like a sheet of gold :-D
I added onto it a thin ribbon of Tin Foil and a strip of metal embellies, that I think was a broken bracelet or something.My Grumpie was stamped and coloured twice, using Spectrum Noir Pens, and then fussy cut into layers and mounted up with 3D foamies. He was then coated with Diamond Glaze.
He sits on top of a real Peacock feather.
I made a sentiment panel and stuck peacock coloured sequins all around and attached it with a tiny metal Bulldog Clip.
Here is the Prize for today.......
I would really love to win that stunner :-D
So, there I am for DAY 1.
Thank you for dropping by. :-) xxxxxxxxxxxx
