Today I bring you a very exciting Blog Hop! Not only is Smeared Ink releasing several new digi sets today (plus a few singles), but it is also the end of this term for the Design Team. We will be saying goodbye to some of our friends, but hello to some new ones. Our very special Guest Designers have also joined us for the hop! So let’s get this party started!
I was given an image from this set to work with. Can you guess which one???
I was given the phoenix to work with! Hmmm…wonder why??? wink! My Phoenix was super excited when I showed him the image. He wants to color one in for himself. But, here’s my version!
Now, in addition to working with a brand new image…Kelli and I challenged the DT to use at least 2 other Smeared Ink sets in their creations. We love to show off the versatility of these stamps…and how well the sets all work together. I was able to use 3 other sets for my card. The “Fire God” (originally Goddess) is from the Elementals collection, the grid is from Quoth the Raven, and the bark texture is from Urban Decay.
I colored the phoenix in with my colored pencils, and edged it with chalk. I also used chalk on the sentiment and the bark. To create the effect on the bark, I stamped the image with Versa Mark, then just applied the chalk. Easy and beautiful!
I added a bit of blue ink to the edges too. So? What do you think? How can you combine your Smeared Ink sets in one project? Wanna see some more inspiration? Please visit the rest of the Design Team! Here’s the blog roll…
