Big News!

I have been chosen to represent Smeared Ink as a Design Team Member! My term starts April 1st. I am so psyched!!!  Here is the link:  The new Smeared Ink design team members will be joining forces with some of the veteran design team members from Smeared and Smudged to bring forth kick-ass artwork utilizing Smeared Ink Stamps.  The new team members will be announced in April.  In the mean time, check out the awesome designs from the current design team.  I can't wait to collaborate with these talented ladies!

Info about Smeared Ink:

Smeared Ink is a small home business owned by Terra Serrano and Tori Searcey, two sisters who bring various experience to the venture.

Tori has an Associates of Applied Arts from the Art Institute of Dallas and has over six years experience as a Graphic Designer, working with various companies. She enjoys photography, the art of Tattoo, illustration, needlework and the mysteries of life and nature.

Terra has over ten years experience as a rubber stamp artist, including demonstrating and designing samples for various rubber stamp companies, and teaching classes and workshops. Her interests include bellydancing, writing, illustration, mixed media art, and creating using power tools and found objects.

Together, these sisters offer their unique perspective to the rubber stamping world.

Info about the stamps:

Smeared Ink designs are deep etch rubber stamps made from natural gum rubber.  They can be safely used with any type of crafting ink.  Their versatility gives you fabulous stamping on a wide variety of papers, fabrics, metal, glass, clay, and velvet. The possibilities are endless. We press our stamps through Picture My Stamp, a leading rubber stamp manufacturer that surpasses industry standards on product quality.

We offer unmounted, untrimmed rubber stamp sheets that are durable and versatile. You can use the rubber as-is after trimming, or add your own cling mount or mounting foam before or after trimming. We do not offer mounting options, but there are several very good online sources for cling mount and standard mounting cushion.

Other Smeared Goodness:
Smeared and Smudged also has their own ning group.  Here's the link:  The ning group offers followers a chance to network, learn new techniques, participate in challenges, and share their artwork.  It is a diverse group that is truly supportive of artistic expression.   Dark Art and Fantasy lovers can find a home here.  Design styles range from sassy to funny to macabre.  All projects are welcome including altered items, mixed media, scrapbook pages, digital art, cards, etc.  The only requirement is that a stamp, rubber or digital, be used in the artwork.  The ladies and gents in this group rock!
