New Release at Smeared Ink

The fabulous Alexandria Serrano has drawn a new set of stamps for Smeared Ink and I have LOVED having a play with them.

Here are the stamps:

Pretty awesome right?

Now what if I was to tell you that you could be in with a chance of winning the full set?

All you need to do is have a look at everyones projects in the hop today and leave a comment on each blog. Then when you have done that leave me a message on the forum here telling me that you have left comments on the blogs and which is your favourite image in this new set. I will be picking a winner at random on Sunday.

Here is the full Blog list for the DT hop today:

I have made a journal page for my piece and I've used Loved alone 2 and Octopus Sorrow all of these images will be available later today in the Smeared Ink Store.

I started by colouring my images in with watercolour pencils

I then added some paint to my journal pages

Once the paint was dry I added some different mists in random places and used my heat gun to blow them around the page to give it a bit of an underwater feel.

the final thing I did before adding my images was to add some fibres to resemble seaweed.

this is my finished layout with the images added

I do hope that you will have time to go and visit all the other blogs and leave some love. 

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
