Ike's World Challenges #33 DT Post

I was not quick enough to get my project for TEAM B in over at Ike's World Challenges.
The current Challenge #33 - Colored Hair will be closed soon, so use that FREE image and get your project entered!

I have used the image called KT Frock which was a FREEBIE from Challenge #17.  So don't miss out on some wonderful images.  You can also see what else Ike has to offer from Ike's Art.

I just love seeing how freaked out the kids get at the Egg Hunts each year.  So this little one is just about as freaked out as you can get!  

Smudgy Antics - Daemon Thursday Post

I have made a calendar page using a digital image from the set called Daemon Horses, a digital paper from the set Honor The Dead, and a rubber stamp from the set Urban Decay.

Please see daily inspiration over at the Smudgy Antics blog and if you happen to use any Smeared Ink images in your projects be sure to enter the month long Smudgy Antics Challenge - Anything Goes.

Smeared Ink is so lucky to have many wonderfully talented artists as part of the image team.  This image was done by Susan Eisenhauer, aka Ike.

Smudgy Antics - Dreams Post

I recently went to Phoenix for a get away with some friends and now find myself playing catch up once again.
This post is for a Smudgy Antics post that was done on March 11th.

The inspiration for this page was inspired by Edgar Allan Poe and a challenge that was based off one of his works.

Quoth the Raven, Nevermore has month long challenges.  I will be entering this into Quest #42 - Dream On.

I have used both digital paper and stamps on this page.  The main image is from the digital set called Death Cab.  The digital papers on the background are from Poe Boy and Vintage Grunge.  Stamps are a set from the Rubber Club Past Offerings, Quoth The Raven.

Quote is from Edgar Allan Poe
"You are not wrong who deem
That my days have been a dream..."

Ike's World Challenges DT project - The Wind

Only a few more days left to get in on Challenge #32 - Paper Piecing over at Ike's World Challenges.
All entries are welcomed, but if you use one of Ike's Art images you can be entered 2x for the prize.  Plus, Ike gives a FREEBIE every new challenge.  Get over there and check it out!

I have made a scrapbook page for my Design Team inspiration project using THE WIND

Chilled Details

Image was printed onto copy paper and Whisper White card stock.

I used the copy paper to cut out the pieces of hair so that I could trace them onto the different designer papers. 

Desinger Papers are from a retired SU! set called Blueberry Crisp.

Once all the hair was in place and adhered down, I used inks, markers, and Aqua Painter to color in rest of the image.

Finished image was fussy cut and adhered onto 12" x 12" page.

Snowflake stamp from SU! set called Festive Flurry and Illuminate ink was used to randomly stamp snowflake on page.

Smudgy Antics DT Post & ASID#16

Ahhh, the beginning of a new month.  So much to get caught up on, get done, and prep for! 

Today is my day over at Smudgy Antics for the Smeared Ink Design Team to get you an inspirational project.  As you may know, I am a huge American Horror Story Fanatic.  So I have another project that is has been inspired from the show and from the wonderfully drawn image by Rick St. Dennis for Smeared Ink called Pickled Punkz.  On my page I have also used the stamp set Carnies, but of course!

I am also going to enter this into the current Challenge #16, over at A Step In The Dark Or Not blog.
