Weekly Challenge, Release, and Blog Hop

Hey all!  It's Monday so that means it's time for another challenge over at Smudgy Antics

This week's challenge theme is Drop Dead Gorgeous!

Not only is there a cool challenge going on, but Smeared Ink has a NEW RELEASE going on as well as a blog hop.  Although I am posting early, the hop goes live Monday April 30th at 9 am PST.

For the challenge and the new release, I made a series of ATCs.  I kept the ATCs simple as I wanted the images to be the main focus.  I used 4 of the 5 images of the "Women of Power" digi set.  Everything was printed on Copic X-Press it cardstock and colored with Copic markers.  Yep, I went old skool.  No digi coloring today.  Heck, I almost forgot how to color with markers!  It felt good to get inky again!

Here are my ATCs:

Sorry for the blurry shots.  I had to use my cell phone and took the pic at night with horrible lighting.  Also, during assembly, I got inky fingerprints on 2 of my ATCs.  Oh, the Horror!  Luckily, a damp tissue removed most of the damage.  

Later this week I will be displaying more projects with the Women of Power set as well as a project with one of the Milagros images.

Here is the hop list:

Me (Lady Brayton)

Two of our members will be sitting out of the hop as one is on holiday and the other has a terrible injury to her drawing and colouring hand.

Here are pics of the release:

Thanks for stopping by!
