TRY IT ON TUESDAY AND THE NEW RELEASE/END OF TERM BLOG HOP FOR SMEARED INK

Welcome to the final blog hop for this DT at SMEARED INK. We have 4 NEW DIGI SETS being released to day and 3 SINGLE DIGIS........ i was given OCTOBAT to work with and as an added challenge we were asked to use stamps from at least another 2 SMEARED INK SETS. The new challenge at TRY IT ON TUESDAY is to alter a frame.... so i combined my 2 DT projects into one..... sorry guys but i have very limited time and both projects gelled so well!The frame is actually a stretched canvas that i have turned over, i made sculpture paper and covered the edges of the 'frame'..... i used black paint, copper and gold metallic rubbing paste to high light the creases. I made corners and covered them with sculpture paper.... rubbed them with bronze paste and added green 'n' gold studs..... these i glued on...... so thats the challenge at TRY IT ON TUESDAY..... please play along if you can. NOW.... back to the blog hop...... Here is the list of blogs you need to visit.... and i promise you , you'll be stunned at what they have created. Smudgy Antics http://smudgyantics.blogspot.com/ Terra http://www.moresmearedink.blogspot.com/ Tori http://ndustrial-lemon.blogspot.com/ Alison http://alisonsrandomthoughts.blogspot.com/ Kelli http://cajunstampingqueen.blogspot.com/ Black Dragon http://lynsblogger.blogspot.com/ Kapree http://kc-consultant.blogspot.com/ Lady Brayton http://www.ladybrayton71.blogspot.com/ Meredith http://www.papercanteen.com/ Lisa http://www.ldfdesign.blogspot.com/ Alex January Guest http://www.paperandstring.blogspot.com/ Jane February Guest http://jcocraft.blogspot.com/ Sugar March Guest http://sugscardsnmore.blogspot.com/ Below are close up pics of my creation..... this was a time consuming labour of love.... and i managed to use stamps from another 6... yep i said 6 SMEARED INK SETS...... The image i used comes from the new CREATURE FEATURE digi set.... The word OBSESSION and the FLYING HEARTS are from WINGED HEART digi set, The twiggy branches are part of a nymph from the rubber NYMPHS SET, The wire mesh in the background is from QUOTE THE RAVEN rubber set, The crosses are from the digi set GLAM VAMPS, The raven flying across the moon is from the rubber HOLY CITY set, and finally THE thorns around the edge are from the rubber FAES set.

The photos dont show it very well but there are layers and depth ... the main image is on acetate supports.... as are some of the winged hearts.... as i am a techno-idiot all the digi stuff is printed out then cut and pasted together....


i used promarkers to colour all the images.... various colours of ink for the background.....


and lots of very fussy cutting to make everything work as i wanted it to.


Enjoy the hop.... please visit us at the SMEARED AND SMUDGED FORUM and at the DT BLOG.... THANK YOU FOR VISITING ME.... SORRY IF I'VE BORED YOU TO DEATH!

  8. You must have little art elves that come in at night and make these remarkable masterpieces for you to display in the morning. Just gorgeous and not possible to fully appreciate in the photos I'm sure. Great idea to turn over your canvas and work the backside.
