Smudgy Antics Weekly Challenge - TIC-TAC-TOE

The challenge theme this week at Smudgy Antics is

Pick any three items in a row going across, down, or diagonally from the grid below and make a project with it.  

My mojo has left me.  I really do need her to return soon as I have lots of crafting that needs to get done this month!  For my challenge project I chose to use fiber, embossing, and sparkle.

Click image to enlarge:
I used one of Smeared Ink's retired rubber sets "Inky Dreams" and I added one of Smeared Ink's digis, "Dr. Doctor" from the "Creepers" digi set.  I used homemade stencils and Dylusions spray inks for the base of the tag.  All the words and blobs and splotches (from the Inky Dreams Set) were  stamped with Versa Mark embossing ink, coated with various Zing embossing powders, and heat set.  I even used some glitter embossing powder.  That stuff is Messy!  I added fibers to the top of the tag and I'm calling it done.

If anyone finds my mojo, would you kindly send her back home?

Head over to the Smudgy Antics Blog for more inspiration 
and then go and get crafting! 

While Smudgy Antics offers awesome weekly challenges and prizes, the Smeared and Smudged forum offers month long challenges for those that may not have as much crafting time available. There are also monthly blog hops, matchbook and atc swaps, holiday swaps, etc.  If you join the forum you are sure to meet new friends and network with some very talented individuals.

    1. Forgot to tell you I saw it on MIM

  19. Word on the street is that there's a mojo convention going on. Mine up and left too with no note or nothing and a suitcase is missing, so I'm assuming yours might be there too. ;)

    However, you've rocked the casbah on this tag and colors, textures and imagery really grabbed my attention! Nicely done. :)

    Thank you so much for taking the time to link up your talent and creative ideas with us at Make It Monday!
    Happy Crafting...
