Welcome back to Smeared and Smudge's 31 days of Halloween! Today is Day 12/31. Man! Halloween is almost here!!!
Today I bring you a small, but awesome project made with Smeared Ink's "As Death" rubber stamp set. For those who haven't purchased Smeared Ink stamps before, let me tell you...these babies are thick and deeply etched. The result is a crisp, clean image. I colored my image with copic markers and mounted it on DCWV cardstock. The project measures 3.5 x 3.5 inches total. I'll try to get a better pick later as my scanner doesn't do this project justice. The background actually fades from deep red, to red-orange, to orange and then yellow. The scanned result just looks like deep red to yellow. Oh...and you can see where my markers bled a little. I am not the neatest when it comes to coloring!
Here's my stamping tip for the day:
I don't have money for a fancy scrap table. I don't want to ruin the tables I do have and I am a VERY MESSY crafter. I just use a fold-out table when crafting and then I can stow it away when company comes over. The problem with folding tables is that they are not always very sturdy. Mine is also a bit warped from years of storage in the garage. Because of this, stamping can be a challenge as there are parts of the image that do not come out (if I happen to be on an uneven portion of the table). Here's my solution...an old mouse pad! I simply lay the mouse pad under my paper and stamp as usual and I get a clean, even image.
Here is the blog roll for today:
