Smudgefest Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of Smudgefest! For all the details on the challenge, please visit the first post. Thank you all so much for participating in yesterday's challenge! What an amazing variety of projects! Although many of you were surprised by the difficulty, we knew you could pull it off and you proved us right! We are stoked to move on to today's challenge and see what you can muster up, and hope you are as well. Just in case you missed them before, here are the rules.

*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:

  1. Such a cool project! I can't wait to see everyone's creations!

  2. I just found this blog yesterday and as I read and noticed this blog is for your design team , so do you have a regular challenge blog?

  3. This was a really fun challenge! It really made me think outside the box and use what I have, since I don't have that many Smeared Ink Stamps... YET! LOL!

  4. Good challenge! I'll be back to comment on everyone's later :)
