Smeared Ink - new release blog hop

It is NEW RELEASE time at Smeared Ink and that comes with a Blog Hop! I am super excited to get to participate this time around as a Guest Designer.

This release, the challenge was to use three different Smeared Ink sets to create the project.  That really got my brain going.  I will admit that originally, I was going a different direction, but when I actually pulled my stamp sets, this image took over in my brain and here it is for all of you to see!!


The primary image is "Scared Eyes" and is one of the new releases.  Above are the cathedral and bird from Holy City and the sentiment is from Li'l Grumpies.  I used Sugar Cookie Glimmer Mist on the panel.  After it dried I placed a stencil from Crafters Template on and sprayed with Olive Vine.  I further distressed the edges with  brown ink and then a copper metal paint pen.  It is all mounted on a panel of dark green.

I hope that you take the time to visit all the artists on the hop.  There are some amazingly creative people associated with it and they always inspire me.  Take the time to leave them a little love :).
