Smudgy Antics New Weekly Challenge- Splat!

Hello everyone, Happy Monday! This is not usually a day that people get excited about...I mean, let's face it, it's the end of the weekend and we all have to go back to work or real life, and sometimes it just plain stinks. But, over in Smeared Ink world (yes, we have our own world, isn't it cool?) we decided to add a little pizazz to your otherwise manic Mondays with a new weekly challenge that will give you an outlet for your pent-up creativity! In other words, join us every Monday to see what the challenge is. Then you'll have all week to join in and participate.

So let's get things kicked off with our first challenge! Of course, we always have to have rules, and here they are:

*Each Monday morning  a new challenge will be posted. It will contain that week's theme and prize information.

*To participate, you must make a project that fits the theme and add it to the post using the Inlinkz linky. It must be linked by midnight on the following Saturday, Pacific Time. This gives you six days to complete the challenge

*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. We have taken into consideration our digital artist fans and will be allowing all-digi projects. 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 and mediums 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.

*The weekly winner will be chosen by random number and revealed on Sunday morning. Prizes will vary and may range from a free digi to a coupon to a blog badge.

They look kinda familiar, eh? Smudgefest was our kickoff for what we hope will be a great time had by all! Shall we get started?

The Challenge:


Create a project that features splatter, drops, splodges, or blots.
