Use Fussy Cutting with Smudgy Antics

Welcome back for another fortnight challenge with Smudgy Antics!

The theme for this challenge is to Use FUSSY CUTTING in your projects.
 Get your scissors or razor knives ready, put your spectacles on, grab a cuppa, and be prepared to cut and cut some more!

Get creative with your cutting.  You can make dimensional images with multiple fussy cut layers or you can fussy cut an intricate design.  The more creative, the better.  Let's see if you can use fussy cutting in a way we haven't seen before.  Although you may use die cuts to enhance your project, there must be a portion of your project fussy cut by hand
 If your fussy cut element is not obvious, please state what you have fussy cut in the write-up of your post.

Please read and follow the rules posted on the left sidebar of the challenge blog to qualify for a prize.

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

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 AUGUST 10th, 2013 to qualify for a prize then check back on Sunday evening (AUGUST 11th, 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.
