Hello! It’s been ages since I’ve done a Smeared & Smudged hop, and I missed them, so I needed to play along with the latest one. The theme is “Mesh It!” You were to use mesh some how, somewhere on your project. I decided to break out some of my favorite Smeared Ink stamps for this one, so I chose 3 images, from 3 of my favorite collections.
I used one of the Gals from Chicks Dig Guns, the mesh stamp from Quoth the Raven, and “pucker up” from Lil Grumpies. I stamped everything in white, and embossed it all in clear, for dimension.
Here you can see the texture from the powder. I also went in with a white pen, and added additional highlights to the chick.
I distressed the edge of the black cardstock, and inked a bloody red around the edges of the card. Voila! It’s done! Simple, but it makes a statement. Basically, you don’t wanna piss this chick off!
There’s a lot more hopping to be done, so get to it! Here is the full list of hoppers.
