Scrap it up challenge at Smudgy Antics


Welcome back for another challenge with Smudgy Antics!

The challenge theme this fortnight is
"SCRAP IT UP!"
Using at least one stamped image (real or digi) and following the rules posted on the left sidebar, we at Smudgy Antics challenge you to use your leftovers. It's the green thing to do. Don't let anything go to waste! You can use your paper scraps, but feel free to use leftover wrapping paper, paper rolls, gift bags, gift boxes and more from the holiday season.

You can stick with paper crafting or you can go three dimensional. The more creative, the better. We love it when you guys and gals think outside the box!


BTW, starting today, you will always have 2 WEEKS to submit your projects. Yep. We are changing the weekly challenges to fortnight challenges to enable more of you busy folks time to play.


For my piece I have made a mixed media canvas using smeared ink rubber stamps from the as Death set, for more information about smeared ink Rubber (which is some of the best quality rubber I have ever used) have a look here

I painted the background first with black gesso and different acrylic paints to get the effect I wanted, I was going for the feel of flames.


I then started to stick on pieces of mesh fabric scraps and layered up some red tissue paper that was used to wrap up a Christmas present. 

When all of it was dry I stamped on the images with with archival ink, just realised that I also used a stamp from the Quoth the Raven rubber set too :)








I do hope you will come and join us for this challenge, don't forget you can come and join us over at the smeared and smudged forum too where you will find lots of inspiration and fun monthly challenges.
