Janie’s Got a Gun…

Janie may have a gun, but someone has their sites set on Janie! Here is my very first card using one of the brand new stamp sets from Smeared and Smudged. It’s from the Chicks Dig Guns Collection.


This chic is pissed! Obviously, this lady who either heard a bump in the night, or is really pissed off at her lover! I used 3 of the stamps from this set. Then I used the site stamp on the background of the card and on parts of her body. I only colored her in where the sites are. Here’s a closer look.


I love how this all came out. I think I will use this same partial coloring technique on some of the other ‘Chicks” in this collection. I distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Walnut Stain- one of my faves. And here’s the inside. Nothing too crazy… just a little “flash.”


The bullets are also of course from this crazy collection. Have you checked out the other Smeared Ink stamps? Well, you should! They are unlike anything else that’s out there! Go check ‘em out. Have an inspiring day!

what a brill idea but on second thoughts i think if we all had guns there would soon be no men cause we would them.
I love how you just colored in where the sites are set. Very cool!

Super freakin' cool! I love that you colored her only where the sites are! Is the stamp like that or did you add the sites to her? Too cool!
