Weekly Challenge - Recycle Something

Smudgy Antics is going green and we want you to do the same! 

We have another challenge for you this week, and we can't wait to see your interpretations of our theme!

Here's a reminder about the rules:

*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. Your link must take us directly to your project on a publicly accessible blog or website, or it will be disqualified - so please make sure you're linking to your actual post. 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, mixed media, 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.

***Every entry, no matter what stamped image is used, will now qualify for a prize. Encourage your crafty friends to come play with us!

*You may use any stamped image, however only projects using at least one Smeared Ink image will be eligible to win placement in the "Top Three".
*You can only enter and qualify for a prize if you are, or become, a follower of the blog. While you're at it, why not visit the forum as well for more challenges?

*The weekly winner will be chosen by random number and revealed on Sunday. Prizes will vary and may range from a free digi to a coupon to a blog badge. The TOP 3 are 'personally selected'.

Here is this week's challenge:

The Prize:

Smeared Ink is converting it's rubber stamps into digi stamps!  This is fantastic news for those digi lovers out there and for those that may be latex sensitive!  The graveyard stamp below is part of Smeared Ink's "Holy City" digi stamp set and is now available for purchase in the store.  This week, since the theme is recycle something, we thought we'd offer this "recycled" stamp!  The best part about digi stamps is that you can make them any size to suit your crafting needs.  Be sure to play along to win the stamp pictured below!


Remember, be sure to link up by Midnight on Saturday PST to qualify for a prize then check back on Sunday for the random draw winner. 

 To be eligible for the coveted top three badge, be sure to use at least one Smeared Ink image.

Hope you have fun!
