Smeared Ink New Release Blog Hop

I am so excited to share my latest card with you! It’s from one of three fabulous new rubber stamp sets from Smeared Ink. Would you like a peek at all three sets? Of course you would!

The second set is called Teen Style Backgrounds. Check out the kicks! Gotta love that stamp!

And this third set is Teen Style Sayings. Some of these phrases are so cool! I love “Epic Fail” and “Rad” the best! Please click on any of the images to see them bigger.

So the Design Team was given the fabulous “Praise Angel” to use. I love this image. I can see myself using him quite often, in a lot of different ways. This first time, I went pretty spiritual…

Praise-Angel-1

This was one of those cards that I had a vision for…and was actually able to execute it perfectly. I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to find the right cream colored paper, but the Black and Creme collection from DCWV was just what I needed!

Praise-Angel-2

This fabulous angel was colored in with colored pencils (his body), metallic acrylic paint (his wings), and Twinkle H20’s (his…uh…garment ;} ). I wanted the paper to look like rays coming out of him…beams of light. I really wanted the monochromatic thing here too… I thought it would make the image softer, and more, well, spiritual, as opposed to being wicked (which I am totally gonna do one day!).

Praise-Angel-3

Here you can see the luster on the wings and his bit ‘o fabric. The champagne colored paint I used for his wings is the perfect shade for an angel! I had stamped him on white cardstock, then distressed the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink. It worked out to be the exact shade of the DCWV cardstock. I also pop dotted him, to give him some more oomph.

So, how would YOU color him? What kind of look would he be sporting if you stamped out the Praise Angel? Would you like to see more before you decide? Then hop on to the rest of the Smeared & Smudged Design Team. I know there is going to be a ton of amazing inspiration! Then, make sure you pick up at least one of these rockin’ new stamp sets for yourself! Click HERE to go right to the Smeared Ink shop! Have an inspiring day!

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
