altered rolodex card

I was in an ATC swap with the requirement that you had to use paint. Well of course I mailed them all off without taking a picture, but the painting was so much fun I decided to make a rolodex card with a similar design to my ATC. I painted the card first with turquoise and then added the metallic bronze. After it was dried I stamped it all up :) I've been collecting unmounted stamps for quiet some time so I dont know where most of the ones I used are from The wings are from CTMH and the small alien head between the wings is from Meer Image. (I'll post my ATC when I get them back)

sketch challenge

Just finished my card for the April sketch challenge over at smeared & smudged. A little bit sassy and straight to the point :) So glad I found that group!!!

another surprise

Here's another "oldie" from my stash, it's a pin made from a recycled cd... you know the one we used to get in the mail all the time. I always get lots of compliments on it and people are surprised to find out it's on a cd. I'm hoping to recreate a few this long holiday weekend. I probably have enough of those cd's to build a house with. Would love to know what you have created with your old cd's. :)

Smeared and Smudged April Blog Hop

Thank you for visiting! My computer crashed last night before I had time to post my hop card so I'm a little late, but hey better late than never! Felt like such a flake when I couldn't get my card up on time...sigh... hope you find it was worth the wait :) The theme was something surprising... so I surfed youtube and found a couple tutorials on a surprise pop-up card.... way fun, i'll be making more of these :)

Time for another exciting blog hop on smeared and smudged. If you haven't checked out the ning site yet you have to get over there. If you like creating art out of the norm this is the place for you! Alternative, gothic, vintage ... there's a little bit of everything over there. Hope to see you there!
