Smudgy Antics AGDT Project

Today is my day for inspiration over at the Smudgy Antics Challenge blog.  If you have not been over there yet, you need to check it out.  Daily inspiration from the DT and such amazing projects.  If you have some Smeared Ink stamps/digital stamps needed to be used, join the Smudgy Antics Monthly Anything Goes Challenge and get a chance to win.

Sweets seem to be the thing this time of year and about to get my baking on this week as well.  That is what inspired me for today's project.  I have used one of the Rubber Club Past Offerings, Candy is Dandy stamp set.

Decided to try a little Duck Tape bag and might be used as an gift to someone this year.  Have a great day, week, and go get crafty!



 Sugar Loaded Deets

Stamps are from set Candy is Dandy and stamped with Black StazOn ink.

Bag is from orange and purple Duck Tape.

Smudgy Antics SIDT Project

Hello and wow, where in the heck did November go??
Lots of changes going on at Smeared Ink!  Updated and new Smeared Ink, the Smudgy Antics Anything Goes Monthly Challenge blog is back up and running, find out about Creepmas and more at Smeared and Smudged: More Smeared Ink blog, and get over to the Smeared and Smudged Facebook Page!

Very exciting that inspiration will be happening once a day by each of the Smeared Ink Design Team members.  I have done an Art Journal Page for you today using the Smeared Ink rubber set called Voodoo.  You can find this set and many more in the Unmounted Rubber Stamps section.

This page was inspired by this past season of American Horror Story - Coven.  If you know me, I LOVE this series and am well into this seasons...which rocks as well.  Quotes are from different episodes from the altered version of Papa Legba.
