ANYTHING GOES WITH SMUDGY ANTICS, WEEK 2 OF 2

This Fortnight's challenge theme is:

"ANYTHING GOES"

We love when you guys and gals think outside of the box.  The more creative and inventive, the better!  You know those projects you WANT to make, but would be shunned from mainstream sites?  They are accepted here!  We get down and dirty.  We like it real, raw, and in your face!  Let your artistic expression fly freely or not as the case may be.  ANYTHING GOES..... everything is welcome....as long as there is a stamped image (rubber or digi) somewhere on your project.

We would also like to take this opportunity to inform our followers that this will be the last Smudgy Antics Challenge on this blog.  After the end of the "Anything Goes" challenge and winner announcement on December 1st, 2013, we will be discontinuing the challenge blog and moving the challenge to the Smeared and Smudged Forum in order to keep all of our awesome challenges available in one spot. 


THE FORUM IS FREE TO JOIN.  The challenge will still be called the "Smudgy Antics" Challenge and will be found in "The Challenger" group on the forum.  We will continue to offer a prize from the Smeared Ink Shop.  The Smudgy Antics Challenge will now become a monthly "Anything Goes" challenge.  Find out more details on the Smeared and Smudged Forum on December 1st, 2013.

FIRE AND ICE WITH SMUDGY ANTICS Week 2 of 2

Welcome back for week 2 of the fortnightly challenge with Smudgy Antics!  
The theme for this challenge is:

FIRE AND ICE.


OK...it seems you ladies and gents might be having a little trouble with this challenge.  I'm going to make it easy on you.  Create a project depicting EITHER FIRE or ICE, but preferably BOTH if you can manage.  If you cannot combine FIRE AND ICE then simply make something with ONE OR THE OTHER.  We want you to play and have fun, not torture you.

Get creative and don't be afraid to think outside of the box.  We embrace all forms of stamped art and love seeing original and diverse projects.  You may enter cards, scrapbook pages, tags, ATCs, altered objects, mixed-media projects, etc.  The more creative you get, the more likely you are to be the chosen winner of the challenge.
This is the last week to play in the FIRE and ICE challenge.
