Smeared & Smudged Blog Hop: Hidden Object

Greetings! It’s time for a blog hop with Smeared & Smudged! This hop isn’t just for the DT members, it was open to everyone on the board. How cool is that?

This time our theme will be: Hidden Object. Make a project with a hidden feature or themed around hiding.

After all of the silliness that happened after I made my Peep Show Box (see that post HERE), I knew that with this topic, I needed to revisit the subject.


I used the Wood Nymph once again…’cause she’s really cool…and I did a card version of the Peep Show.


Now you see it…


Now you don’t! I’m pretty sure this isn’t what Terra and Tori intended for these images, but it’s just too hard to resist!!! See??? Doesn’t it look like a dress now???


This definition is also a part of this stamp set.

I added some Distress Stickles to her limbs for some dimension, and I chalked the outer edge of the card. I didn’t want to do too much, since I wanted the focus to be on her and her dress (or lack there of!). I hope you like it! I know I do!

Here’s the whole list of Blogs to visit.

Enjoy the hop! And if you are super inspired, please join our fabulous group!
