Welcome back for another fortnight challenge with Smudgy Antics!
For this challenge we want to see more than just paper, glue and ink.
We want to see TEXTURE and lots of it!  We want to you guys and gals to create projects that make us want to reach through the computer screen and touch everything we see!  The more creative the better.  We love it when you guys and gals think outside of the box and make something with that extra "WOW" factor.

Of course we must address the fine print.  Although the focus of the challenge is to use TEXTURE, you must still use a stamped image (real or digi) and you must follow the rules posted on the left sidebar of the challenge blog to be in the running for a prize.  Collage sheets may be used to enhance your project, but they do NOT count as a stamped image so make sure you use a stamp of some sort in your final piece.

Pictured below is some inspiration from the first half of the Smeared Ink DT.  
We will post a challenge reminder next week with examples from
 the remainder of the team. 
 You may click on the individual pictures for a larger view and you can visit any of the designers' blogs by clicking on the names above the project pictures.  

I highly suggest visiting the designers' blogs as you can learn tips and tricks on how each lady made her project. 
Leaving a bit of love is always appreciated too.

The Prize:

A $5.00 gift voucher to Smeared Ink.

Remember, be sure read and follow the rules in the left sidebar and link your project to Inlinkz by Midnight PST on Saturday June 15th, 2013 to qualify for a prize then check back on Sunday evening (June 16th, 2013) 
for the chosen winner.

If you are not of fan of digi images, perhaps you would like to put your winning gift voucher towards an 8.5" x 11" sheet of deeply etched, unmounted rubber instead?  Yep.  Smeared Ink's Rubber is BACK!  Check out the Smeared Ink Rubber Club for more information.

If you like our challenges, why not head over to the Smeared and Smudged Forum?  Smeared and Smudged offers several monthly challenges with prizes, monthly blog hops, monthly ATC swaps, Holiday Swaps, and the Monthly DT Throwdown Challenge.  

 The Skull Appreciation Day Blog Hop is June 4th, 2013 which starts at 9am pacific time and there are prizes to be won for those that hop.  It is one of the biggest and best blog hops of the year!  This year we have 45 bloggers!
