SmudgeFest Begins Today!


We at Smeared Ink are so excited to be hosting our second annual week-long challenge extravaganza called SmudgeFest! Each morning we will post a different challenge theme and participants will have until midnight to post their project for that day's challenge. The daily winner will be announced the next morning along with the new challenge theme. Daily prizes will vary from gift certificates to coupons to free digis.

The fun thing about it is, at the end of the seven days we will be drawing for a grand prize! In order to qualify, participants must have posted entries in all seven challenges and must have used at least one Smeared Ink stamp (rubber or digi) on each creation. The grand prize will consist of a $200 Smeared Ink SHOPPING SPREE!!
We look forward to this week long fun fest, and we hope you can play along!!!

Here are the rules:
 *Each morning from August 6th through 12th 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 to qualify for the grand prize drawing. You are allowed to use anything else that you like.

 *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 entries for all seven days and used a Smeared Ink image on all their entries will be entered for the Grand Prize Drawing of a $200 shopping spree from Smeared Ink. The winner will be chosen by random number and announced on Monday, August 13th. We've got a new release coming up so I hope you are all excited for this chance to win loads of our images!!
