My first DT post!

I am so excited to be able to put my very first post as a Smeared Ink DT member up!
I tried to make something extra special, and it kind of got out of control.
I started with a little wooden coffin.
I tried to die it with Tim Holtz aged wood ink, which turned my hands blue! (they are still blue btw)
I added some netting (from an orange bag.. I love to recycle)
I colored the fantabulous image "Frankenhottie" from Tiddly Inks.. made specifically for Smeared and Smudged.. (with my new watercolor pencils)
There was a little mistake when gluing her down. For some reason, most of my adheisives wouldn't work on the coffin, so I had to use my sticky glue.. It leaked ink through my paper and made her look kinda off.. But maybe that's just adding to her quirkiness..
I stickled her and tried to cover up most of the leakage..
Moving on to the inside..
can you hear the creaking?

I trapped a lil grumpie inside with some fairy dust. Hoping this will make him, not so grumpy. Or maybe it will give him special powers. Well have to wait and see.

That's about it. Thanks for visiting me today.
I'm off to find an awesome name for my posting days. :)


  1. Great job on your first S&S DT project, Sugar! I think it came out great! Isn't it interesting how our projects get away from us and come out so different then we imagined? It's awesome!

  2. sooo cute, Sugar! LOVE Frankie and what you did with the coffin. Fab project! congrats! xxD
