Saturday is my posting day for Smeared Ink DT projects. I'm going to kick-off this Saturday Old-Skool. Yup. I'm bringing classic back and unleashing my inner freak.
I went back into my stamp stash and brought out an oldie, but a goodie...my Mermaid Carnie Stamp! I think this was the second Smeared Ink stamp set I owned so it holds a special place in my heart. She is stamped with Memento Ink and colored with Copic markers. The background is a scenery stamp, but I don't remember which brand. The sun and clouds are colored with Copic markers as well. I added shimmer with spica gel pens. I'm out of my good paper so my coloring is a bit smeared, but I think that adds to the charm of this piece. The matting cardstock is DCWV.
Fast forward to one of my more recent Smeared Ink Stamp sets to ring in 2011:
This hottie is "Vanity" from Smeared Ink's "The Symbology of Angels" rubber stamp set. Sorry. I just HAD to objectify him a bit. The first project with Vanity is more romantic...my version of a Valentine's Day card for a bestie. The second project with Vanity is all out stripper-rific! Both projects were stamped with Memento Ink and colored with Copic markers. Everything else, including the rose in Vanity's teeth, was digitally added. I love hybrid projects!
I hope you've enjoyed the eye-candy. Tune back in next week for more inky goodness. What? Can't wait until next week for your Smeared Ink fix?
