Smudgefest Begins Today!

We at Smeared Ink are so excited to be starting off this super fun Challenge Extravaganza! In case you don't know about Smudgefest, we will be hosting a week full of challenges and prizes, with a huge grand prize opportunity at the end. This is to help us kick off our new weekly challenges here on Smudgy Antics, and we are sure you will have a blast! Of course, with every contest, there must be rules. So, read on to find out how the week-long challenges will work.

*Each morning from August 1st through 7th at 12:01 am Pacific Time, a new challenge will be posted. It will contain that day's theme and prize information.

*To participate, you must make a project that fits the theme and add it to that day's post using the Inlinkz linky. It must be linked by midnight of the same day.

*Your project can be anything (card, scrapbook page, altered or 3-d item, etc) as long as it is handmade and stamped somewhere with either a rubber or digital stamp. Feel free to think outside the box and have fun with your project! We are all about looking at things differently and look forward to the variety of projects we are sure to see.

*You must use AT LEAST 1 Smeared ink image on your project. You are allowed to use anything else that you like. No all-digital projects allowed.

*The daily winner will be chosen by random number and revealed later the next day in a separate post (not the daily theme post).

*At the end of the week, all participatnts who submitted entried for all seven days will be entered for the Grand Prize Drawing of 17 digi stamp sets from Smeared Ink. The winner will be chosen by random number and announced on Monday, August 8th. Here are the stamp sets up for grabs:
