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!
