day one of Smudgefest

Hi everyone I am so glad to be able to play along with smudgefest again this year however I have to say this challenge has got me a little stumped.

We at Smeared Ink are so excited to be hosting our third annual week-long challenge extravaganza called SmudgeFest! Each morning from now until Sunday we will post a different challenge theme. Participants will have until midnight to post their project for that day's challenge. The daily winner will be drawn by random number and announced the next morning along with the new challenge theme. Daily prizes will vary, and the only way to know what they are is to join us each day. 

 The fun thing about it is, at the end of the seven days we will be drawing for an awesome grand prize! In order to qualify, participants must have posted entries in all seven challenges and must have used at least one Smeared Ink stamp (rubber or digi) on each creation. The grand prize will consist of a $200 Smeared Ink SHOPPING SPREE valid for anything in our online shop! (Grand Prize amount not valid on Rubber Club orders) We look forward to this week long fun fest, and we hope you can play along!!! 

 Here are the rules: 

 *Each morning from August 5th through 11th, 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 the Inlinkz linky tool. It 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 grand 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 grand 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). 

 *At the end of the week, all participants who submitted entries for all seven days and used a Smeared Ink image on all their entries will be entered for the Grand Prize Drawing of a $200 shopping spree from Smeared Ink. The winner will be chosen by random number and announced on Monday, August 12th. 
We've got a new release coming up so I hope you are all excited for this chance to win loads of our images!!  
So, are you ready to play? Welcome to Day 1 of SmudgeFest!! 

The Challenge: 
Create a bi-polar project that showcases two opposites.

In my head the theme Bi Polor means things can be totally opposite from each other and you can't get any more opposite than black and white. The stamp I used is from the Rick st Dennis Morte rubber set from Smeared ink I stamped the image twice, once with black into onto white card stock and again with white ink onto black card stock. I then layered the image onto the opposite colour card. I then added some black and white ribbon to make a hanging.
