Smeared and Smudged Blog Hop - September

It's time for another blog hop with the crew over at smeared and smudged. If you haven't had the chance to stop by the ning site and check things out you need to make time. The talent over there is beyond belief , the artists are AMAZING and everyone is super friendly to boot! So if you like to create art join us, there is always some sort of challenge going on to inspire you and encourage you to use your stamps :)

The theme for this hop is orange. I decided to use one of my new Queen Kat Design stamps, she's Emma from the creepie cuties collection. I colored her tunic and hat with my orange copic and the lighter orange stripes are gel pen. Papers and black hemp are from CTMH, the skulls I picked up at the gem show last year and the phrase stamp is from Viva Las Vegas Stamps. It says "I am the terror that stamps in the night." hehe i love that stamp!

Keep on hopping!

I was busy in August stamping, just not busy posting. Here's a few of the projects I did for the Smeared and Smudged group.
-The top card was for the monthly sketch, image from stampotique, phrase from viva las vegas stamps inks and papers from CTMH.
-The second card was for the Rock-n-Roll challenge. Crazy video and the "welcome to my tea party" part of the song was stuck in my head for days! So I used a crazy stampotique image, isn't she AWESOME! and colored her with pencils and gel pens, the net was a goodie I got from someone in an atc swap and thought it went well with her skirt. The alpha stamps, papers, inks and bling are all from CTMH.
-The last card was from Jean's Mixed Media class on S&S. Started out with white texture cs added paint in 3 layers. The beautiful image is from Smeared Ink. Colored her hair and legs with pencils and gel pens. The flashy bits on the side are cut up peices of soda can and some sequins. Not bad for my first attempt I think :)
