Smeared Ink Monday!!

Good Morning everyone!!

I'm here with you today to share another Smeared Ink Creation!!  I'm so excited to be using one of the newest SI stamp collections...Inky Dreams!! 

I love this set as it has SOOOOOOOOOOO many possibilities in terms of being used for cards, altered items, CLOTHING, etc!! 

Today I have a card for you but I will be using this to alter a number of items that have been waiting patiently!!  =)

I found a cool image online as an addition to my Inky Dreams splotches, splatters and dots.  I colored it up with my Copics and Prismacolor markers, trimmed it out and set it aside. 

I then created my background from a really pretty, creamy ivory cardstock.  I used my large Inky Dreams background inked in black on white cardstock.  I then used my Copic color Champagne to edge the ink splotches. I then heavily inked the edges with Tim Holtz distressing ink in Tea Dye. 


I created a little ribbon melange in the bottom left hand corner (I've been huge into mixed media on my creations lately).  I inked up my Inky Dreams sentiment and also distressed the edges.  I inked the big SPLOTCH of paint, colored the edges in Copic - Antwerp Blue, punched it out and added it as part of my sentiment.

I hope you have enjoyed and been inspired!!!

Please check out our fabulous forum!!  There are amazing challenges, chats and lots of fun!!

Meredith, this is FABULOUS!!! I adore it so much, you have no idea! I don't know what it is, I think it's the bright colors with the "dirty" background that make it so appealing, not to mention your amazing talent for composition and balance :)
LOVE IT!!!!!
