Smudgefest Day 4

Whew! We've made it to day 4! How are you guys hanging in there? Just think, this is prep for 31 Days of Halloween, which will be coming sooner than we think. For those of you who don't know what 31 Days of Halloween is, be on the lookout for information coming out around the 15th of this month. If you like Smudgefest, you will LOVE 31 Days!!!

But, I digress.... welcome to Day 4 of Smudgefest! For all the details on the challenge, please visit the first post. We can't tell you how exciting it has been seeing all of the participants for these challenges, and we really hope you will all stick around for the regular challenges that will start next Monday, Aug 8th. But for now, just in case you missed them before, here are the rules for the Smudgefest challenges.

*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:
