Good Monday Morning!
I'm so excited that you've hopped here today! But before I continue, I must say a HUGE thank you to Terra and Tori owners and designers of Smeared Ink. As well as all of my wonderful Design Teammates. Today is my last official post as a Smeared Ink Design Team Member. I have above and beyond enjoyed myself working for/with this amazing team and will most definitely pop in and participate in all of the fabulousness that is Smeared Ink when I can!! You girls completely rock.
After all of that hubub - You should be arriving here from the Darling LadyBraton's gorgeous blog.
Now onto the creating (before I start to tear up!!) - I was assigned to use a brand new image coming out from the Death Cab digital set. Yes, it's a hearse. Dark to some...super cool to others. However you look at it it's beautiful. So delicate and fragile looking. So Victorian-"esque". I was supposed to use other images in my creation but seriously? I wanted this to stand alone. It needed it's own space.
As you can see, I printed the image on white cardstock - I didn't color my image as I loved the detail of the black and white but I did choose certain spots to add silver real glass glitter. I then matted it on dark raspberry cardstock and stitched them together with black thread. I then matted it using foam dots onto three stitched together layers on top of a black, Grosgrain bow.
The interior of this card is one of the five 'sentiments' that come with this set. I again, matted and stitched. I forgot to stitch around my sentiment so I just doodled a bit and again added silver real glass glitter to the corners of that panel.
Since I didn't entirely follow the rules I will tell you my favorite four Smeared Ink sets :
- Heart Wings
- Love Lil' Grumpies
Please keep on hopping to Lisa's blog to see her beautiful creation!!
Thank you girls for supporting me and allowing me the privilege of working for Smeared Ink!! It's been an amazing year.
