Smeared and Smudged January Member Blog Hop

It's Blog Hop time!

The Smeared and Smudged Forum is hosting a
January Member Blog Hop.

 You should have arrived from Kapree and are now here at Shoni aka Crafty Inknik's blog.
Next up is Fiona.

The Blog Hop Member Roll will be posted following my project, 
then more details on my project and more pics.

This hop is all day long with wonderful projects
created just for this event.  
I thank you for hopping along with us and to all the 
wonderful talented people who made the hop possible.

I have altered a wooden clothes pin with a 
New Smeared Ink image from the set

Blog Hop Roll


Snoozin' on the Deets

Image from the Smeared Ink digital set Eyes In The Dark, was printed out 8 times.
This was Technique #7 - Fussy Cut Layering found in the Smeared and Smudged Forum in the new Mixed Media Group.
Each image was colored in with inks and Blender Pen.
Then each image was fussy cut and with each layer, a section of the image was cut off, this achieves the great dimension and layering.
I used dimensionals to adhere each layer.
Versa Marker Pen around cut layer edges.  Gold Embossing Powder over marked areas and a heat gun to set.
Once all put together, Crystal Effects was used over entire owl and set aside to dry.

I used the 1/2" Watercolor Wonder Designer Washi Tape from Stampin' Up! (2014 Occasions Catalog) to cover wooden clothes pin and the entire back of owl once it was dried.
Sticky Strip to adhere owl to cloths pin.
All materials used are current Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted.
