Are you feeling a little sketchy today?  Woke up from too much Cinco de Mayo fun with that "leave me alone" attitude?

Well, today's project may help you.  This card sketch is from this month's challenge from the Smeared Ink Forum.  

Find that straight jacket, pad up those walls, and ask to be MEDICATED.


All supplies, paper, and card stock are from Stampin' Up!

Main image stamp is from Queen Kat Design Stamp Co. called Syd, by Steven Benson.  I used a Blender pen and inks to color him in.  Eyes have Crystal Effects on them to help pop them out some.

Syd and sayings are stamped in Black Staze On ink.
Bla Bla Bla stamp is from Stampotique by Jill Penny.

Inside saying is from Ranger in a set called Say It How It Is.

For the ink blots, I did an old technique.  Place a drop of re-inker on your card stock.  Take a straw and blow ink.  This gives a great all your own design.

I used an Embossing Folder called Chevron and inked the raised or embossed areas with Smoky Slate ink.  Then stamped saying.

Chevron Embossing Folder is also used on a  3/4" inch of designer paper which goes down the center of card front.

Inside card I used a spritz mixture of Basic Black re-inker, alcohol, and Vanilla Smooch Shimmer Spritz.
