Smeared Ink New Release Blog Hop

I love new releases! It means I have new things to play with! Today I am sharing a card that I made using one of the 4 brand spankin’ new sets form Smeared Ink.

This is Inky Dreams. Isn’t it fabulous??? There are a bajillion things I can do with this set! But for now, I’ll share just one…

Smudgy-Fingers-1

I used the Smudgy Fingers Inky Dreams sentiments, along with the Inky Badge. That stamp is HUGE!

For this card, I stamped, inked, smeared, smudged and Stickled…and man, was it fun!!! There’s ink, Glimmer Mist, Stickles, and chalk on the card. Here’s a close up.

Smudgy-Fingers-2

Check out all the Glimmer Mist!!! You can click on any of the photos to see it bigger. I smeared Stickles inside the blobs and sprays of ink. I like the added texture a lot.

Smudgy-Fingers-3

Did you notice my new punch??? From the devil herself…Martha Stewart. It’s called Cracks. I thought it was perfect for these images!

I love the added texture the stickles provided and the shimmery lovliness. Your cracked punch does add the perfect touch to your sentiment. Great job, TS!

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
