Did you know that Smeared Ink has weekly challenges on their site? And that YOU get to pick the winner? It’s true! Every month, Smeared Ink has a different challenge in which you use their stamps. Each week a winner is chosen (again, by you!) and at the end of the month there is a final showdown! The winner of the showdown gets a 25% off coupon to use on Smeared Ink images! I had to play along this week. It’s called Holy Ground, and it’s recommended that you use the Holy City stamp set, which I love! Here’s my card. A little creepy, no? Just how I like it! I used colored pencils to color in the image. Isn’t it a beautiful shot? It’s fro a cemetery in Charleston, South Carolina. I tore up the edge with my edge distresser from Heidi Swapp. And of course, I needed to ink it up a bit! So I used some brown and green, to go with the way I colored the image. I thought the sentiment “happily ever after” was sweet and freakin’ creepy at the same time. A couple of globs of Distress Stickles and I called it done. So, now I need you to vote! On July 8th and 9th, you will be able to vote for my card (if you think it deserves a vote!) on the Smeared Ink site. Go to the “News” page, and then click on the “Vote” tab. And hey…if you have some Smeared Ink stamps of your own, why not enter as well??? Have an inspiring day!
Hi Alison! I love your card. That is the set I want, so happy tomorrow is pay day! lol
This is fabulous, Alison! Creepy… YES… and I like it like that 🙂
This is really beautiful. I love the raw edges and the layers of color. Gorgeous!
This is amazing! Your coloring is off the chain! It's actually a serene scene, but your sentiment makes it totally creepy. I love it!
What an amazing card! Your coloring rocks and what a perfect layout!!
