Weekly Challenge - ANYTHING GOES and Skull Appreciation Day

Congratulations to the winner and top three of the 

embellish it challenge last week!

This week's challenge theme is:

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 free!

Be sure to read and follow the challenge rules posted on the left side bar to qualify for the random prize drawing and the coveted "Top Three" badge.

For inspiration, check out the projects from the Smeared Ink DT:

A $5.00 gift voucher to Smeared Ink.

Remember, be sure to link up by Midnight on Saturday PST to qualify for a prize then check back on Sunday for the random draw winner.

To be eligible for the coveted top three badge, be sure to use at least one Smeared Ink image.

If you like our challenges you should drop by our forum where we have additional monthly challenges as well as monthly blog hops and ATC swaps.

Speaking of Blog Hops, Smeared and Smudged is sponsoring a HUGE blog hop in celebration of Skull Appreciation Day!  You can win a prize just for hopping along and leaving a little love at each of the blogs involved.  If you wish to see some awesome skull-themed art and you like winning free goodies, you can start the hop here.  
Please note, the hop goes live June 4th at 9:00am PST.  

Have Fun!

  5. Just so I get this straight --for this challenge we can make ANYTHING?

    1. Yep. As long as a stamped image (rubber, digi, or clear)is used, you can make anything. Altered objects, jewelry, mixed-media, altered photos, sculptures, your wallet, etc. Just make sure you use a stamp somewhere in your project and follow the rules listed in the left side-bar and you're golden.
