SMEARED INK ..... My 1st post on their new DT blog.

Happy wednesday to everyone, today is my turn to share something i've made using SMEARED INK STAMPS on the new DT BLOG thats just been set up. Click on my header and become a follower.... please?
I have altered a box.... using the sculpture paper that Terra gives a brilliant tutorial on, on Mixed media university, on the SMEARED AND SMUDGED FORUM.... the link is on my side bar.
After making my paper ....i used clear gesso mixed with red paint...i cover my empty box with it... i distressed the edges with black paint and silver metallic rub-on cream.
I used T!m Holtz die-cuts around the sides of the box...painted black and distressed same as the box.
I painted a wooden heart red, triple embossed with clear embossing powder.... i added a little chinese laquer around the edges just before stamping my SMEARED INK, GODDESS,
into it.



I made 2 lace flowers, coloured some silk leaves black, added some ribbon and placed that on the box top with my GODDESS heart.
Finally i added the word 'love' .... there you have it... a recycled box, fit for a Valentines gift.... oh dear...now to make something to put in it!
Thank you for joining me today. Please remember to go and check out TERRA's tutorial.... sculpture paper was so easy to make and fun to work with.... i have some deep purple waiting for me!
