I made two projects today.  Click the images to enlarge the pictures.  My first project was a tag that used tons of Dylusions  Spray inks with stencils.  I used background stamps from one of Smeared Ink's retired rubber sets.  I believe it was called Inky Dreams, but I may be wrong.  I stamped the background stamps with Versa mark embossing ink and used various colors of Zing embossing powders.  The only word is ART.  I added some ribbon fibers as an accent.

Next is project number 2.  I made this just in case my background stamps in my first project were mistaken for image stamps.  I know, I'm paranoid, but I really want that Amazon gift card!

 I made mini blood vials using glossy accents and R59 alcohol ink from my Copic refill container.  I mixed the solution with a thick sewing needle and corked the vial.  Using one of Smeared Ink's Li'l Grumpies sentiments, I stamped "suck it up" and stuck it to the vial with double sided tape.

  1. Awesome tag - love the colours. I have never tried them spray inks. The little bottle is wonderful - for some reason it just made me giggle. !! Maybe I am going a little strange today ! :-D xxx

  2. Beautiful tag, love the colors! The little vile of blood is just fabulous too. Way to rock the challenge :)

  3. Love both projects. Your tag is fun and I love the colorful background...your vile is creepy-tastic! Good luck on SmudgeFest!

  4. Beautifl tag and the bottle Rocks

  5. I totally LOVE both of these entries! The tag is so gorgeous, beautiful collage and pleasing colors - it "wow"s me. The idea of that sentiment on the tiny vile is perfect! Perfect for any zombie needing encouragement to get through the day!
