Smeared and Smudged STEAMPUNK Blog hop

Well it would seem my mojo is back with full force and what better way to share it that with a Smeared and Smudged members blog hop. Today has an extra treat as the Smeared Ink DT are sharing projects made with a brand new stamp set.

If you would like to see all of the new stamps or would like to get your hands on them after seeing what the DT have done with them then head over to the store here

I have used one of the gorgeous new Grumpies to make a wall hanging, I started with an old CD which I covered with some Smeared Ink digital paper and the stamp. I then raided my many boxes of 'junk' to see what I could use on this piece. I do hope that you will hop along and see all the pieces in today's hop.

Material Things with QTR

It is mid way through our current challenge at Quoth the Raven which is Material Things. For this week I have kept my piece rather simple. I've made a book mark for my brand new hard back complete works of E.A. Poe! I am very aware that this is one of many complete works of Poe's I have, but I didn't have this particular edition before therefore it was a perfectly legitimate purchase... Okay maybe I do have a little bit of a problem when it comes to buying books LOL

Anyway back to the piece and the challenge, I had a look through my material box to find a suitable piece of fabric and finally picked this duck egg blue coloured piece, The image I have used on the pendent is one of the rubber stamps from the Smeared Ink Quoth the Raven set.

Smudgy Antics Mid Way Reminder

We are already half way through the current anything goes challenge at Smudgy Antics! I have made a CAS card this week using the option twist which is "feeling grumpie"  I've used one of the rubber stamps from the Creepy Li'l Grumpies , which I coloured with promarkers, distress inks and white poster pen to make this card.

I do hope you will come along and join in with our challenge. 

One for the Men with IWC

It's week 2 of the current challenge at IWC which is 'One for the Men' now normally I dread having to make anything for men, and I will be honest this piece was more a case of I was in some serious need of art therapy and I have bent the theme to fit what I really wanted to make hehe.

I started with a piece of mount board which I covered in paper, then I used Vaseline through a stencil before painting over it all. Once the paint was about dry I used a baby wipe to take the paint and Vaseline off revealing the paper I left this a little bit too long really as some of the paper pealed too, but I fixed that when I added a black paint wash over the whole thing and then I ended up with the image over it so you wouldn't have seen it anyway.

The image is called ROBOT 2 and I have coloured it with a mixture of Coloursoft pencils and Spectrum noir pens.  I used up some Die cut cogs that had been cut ages ago (like 2 years ago!) and I used some steampunky paper…

Pet/Animals with IWC

Hello my lovelies, It is weeks 2 with the current challenge at IWC which is Pets/Animals. I have made a card for my DT piece using Kitty 01.

I do hope that you will come and join us.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Smeared Ink is BACK!!!!!

Yes that's right my lovelies you can now purchase Smeared Ink stamps again. If you head over to this link here you will see the shop tab right there.

To celebrate the return of the home of alternative stamping the DT have got a little hop for you. We would really love it if you could stop by and leave us all some love.


The theme for this Months Challenge at Smudgy Antics is ANYTHING GOES as always, but if you like to have a theme to work with then the optional twist is Feeling Grumpie.
The piece I have made is a wall hanging using oe of the stamps from the Hallocuties set and the Happy Halloween from the Creepy Lil Grumpies set.
