I Got My “Sites” Set On You…

Sometimes, when you get inspiration, you’ve just gotta run with it. Run until you’ve exhausted all ideas. Just to make sure you didn’t miss anything. Today I am sharing another Smeared Ink card, (from the Chicks Dig Guns Collection) using the Chick in her undies. I have once again added sites to her, as though she’s bein’ tracked by her enemy. Husband? Husband’s Mistress? Sniper? I’ll let you decide. But this time, I colored it in a bit differently.


And to refresh your memory, here is how I had colored her in last time:


Here’s a close up of this version:



See all of the differences? I really wanted the sites to stand out again. But differently. So this time, I colored them in with red marker. A nice, bright red. Nix picked out the green for her, uh, outfit. And of course, the sentiment is from this collection too.


See the brown paper? That’s actually a flower. It’s a huge magnolia, but since I was using such a small piece, you can’t tell. I like that it looked almost like a fingerprint.

Ok, I’m gonna use another Chick for the next card. I’ve got her all colored in and everything! I just hafta get her layout straight in my head! So which version do you like better? What stamps do you have that you can create a similar effect (even if it isn’t so grizzly!)? Look around your stamp space and see how you can do the same technique! Have an inspiring day!!!

Great card Alison! I love how you used the large flower as the b.g, I have a hard time figuring out what to do with large prints so that helps a lot! Thank u for the comment, I didnt know her name was Nicolette :)
