Use Only Smeared Ink Images with Smudgy Antics Week 1 of 2

Welcome back for another fortnight challenge with Smudgy Antics!
The theme for this challenge is 
to USE ONLY SMEARED INK STAMPS in your projects. 
NO OTHER STAMPS ARE ALLOWED. You may use rubber stamps or digi stamps or a combination of the two, but you may ONLY USE SMEARED INK STAMPS in your creations this fortnight.  

If you don't own any Smeared Ink images, 

you can purchase some digi's in the Smeared Ink Shop.
If you don't have money to spare, you can join the Smeared and Smudged Forum for FREE and pick-up the freebie for the Freaky Freebie Challenge and combine that challenge with this challenge.  
This challenge can be combined with 
the 31 Days of Halloween as well. 
 There are no excuses!  
Get a Smeared Ink image and play!

Get creative and don't be afraid to think outside of the box.  We embrace all forms of stamped art and love seeing original and diverse projects.  You may enter cards, scrapbook pages, tags, ATCs, altered objects, mixed-media projects, etc.  The more creative you get, the more likely you are to be the chosen winner of the challenge.

I made a quick and simple tag. 
Click pictures to enlarge:

Smeared Ink Stamps on the background of the tag are from the "Quoth the Raven" rubber set.  This set is sold exclusively as a past offering in the Smeard Ink Rubber Club.
The Smeared Ink Grumpie in the foreground of my tag was a limited edition digi for a fundraiser.

Texture Crackle in Colorado Orange (TXC05-51)

Other items:

Copic Markers
Staz-on Ink in red, black, and brown

Be sure to head over to Smudgy Antics to see what the other DT gals have created for your inspiration.

  1. Love the vibrant colors on this, LB! Fab mesh and fibers too. I gotta play in this one. xxD

  2. LB, that bg w/ the staples is a super wonderful idea!! Gorgeous coloring on this sweet grumpie. Too funny that the name is Colorado Orange, maybe to go the Denver Broncos color? hahaaa. You've inspired me to use mine. Love it!
