Smeared Ink DT piece - Altered Tile

Here is my DT piece for Smeared Ink for this week, I have altered a ceramic tile using one of the May featured rubber sets called Jack. this rubber set can only be got through the rubber club at smeared ink, full details of which can be found here.

The image was stamped onto the tile then I heat embossed it. Once the ink and embossing powders were all dry I coloured in the images with alcohol inks. 

Come and have a look at what is going on this week in the Smeared and Smudged Forum

I have made a journal page for my piece and I've used Loved alone 2 and Octopus Sorrow all of these images will be available later today in the Smeared Ink Store.

I started by colouring my images in with watercolour pencils

I then added some paint to my journal pages

Once the paint was dry I added some different mists in random places and used my heat gun to blow them around the page to give it a bit of an underwater feel.

the final thing I did before adding my images was to add some fibres to resemble seaweed.

this is my finished layout with the images added

I do hope that you will have time to go and visit all the other blogs and leave some love.

Crazy Craniums

This ATC has been made with the Wicked Wednesday ATC challenge in mind. I always mean to join in with loads of challenges and then either forget or just run out of time, so I am pleased I actually have something made in time for a change :)

The image that I have used is Cranium Witch from Smeared Ink and on the background of my ATC I used the rubber background stamp from the Morte set, also from Smeared Ink.

Smeared and Smudged members hop

The hop theme this month is to decorate an egg, I very nearly didn't sign up to this one as I didn't think I would have time. I am glad I did sign up...even if it was only yesterday morning that I did LOL

April Monthly Member Blog Hop

I knew I wanted my egg to be a dragon egg I just wasn't sure how I was going to go about it, then I remembered that Haunted Design House have got a steampunk junk and an egg shell would normally end up in the bin so I figured it's junk enough so i'd make a steampunk dragons egg. 

The egg was blown, cleaned and dried then was given a coat of acrylic paint (the sort you get to paint models) I realised that trying to paint an egg and keep it still wasn't going to work so I ended up just rubbing the paint all over with my hands, which was rather satisfying. When the blu was dry I added some no nails glue and stuck on my watch parts, once that was dry it had a few blasts of brass spray paint before adding a little bit more of the blue to blend it. the image I have used is from smeared Ink and is called Hanging Dragons. Everything else I used has come from my stash, I set fire to some of the straw as a dragons lair wouldn't be complete without a bit of singeing :D

All in all this was a fantastic project to make...I got to get covered in paint, pull apart bones, smeared some fake blood around and set fire to things! I do hope that you will hop along and look at all the other fab projects on offer today.
