GLITTER and GORE with Smudgy Antics

This fortnight at Smudgy Antics, we want to see who has the GUTS and the BLOODY SPARKLE-TUDE to play along with our challenge.  Our hearts will beat outside of our chests with pride, glistening in the light of the glittering sun.  In case you haven't guessed the theme yet...or haven't looked at the title of the post (DUH) the theme this fortnight is 

The choice is NOT OPTIONAL.  YOU MUST USE BOTH GLITTER AND GORE in this challenge or your project will not qualify for a prize.  If you don't own any gory or scary stamps, Smeared Ink has plenty of digis in their shop that fit the bill.  If you are super strapped for cash, you may use any stamp, even a cute one, as long as you add both glitter and gore.  I have seen some amazingly gory Magnolia projects out there in blogland so there is no excuse NOT to play.

We can't wait to see what you guys and gals make!
Remember to use a stamped image (real or digi) and follow the rules posted on the left sidebar to qualify for a prize.  Only the best will win so get your mojos on the ready and get creative. 

Here is some inspiration from the first half of the Smeared Ink DT.  
We will post a challenge reminder next week with examples from
 the other half of the team. 
 You may click on the individual pictures for a larger view and you can visit any of the designers' blogs by clicking on the names above the project pictures.  

I highly suggest visiting the designers' blogs as you can learn tips and tricks on how each lady made her project. 
Leaving a bit of love is always appreciated too.


And a special announcement today. The RE-introduction of Kapree to our DT! As some of you already know, Kapree was on our DT for a while and we would like to welcome her back! Please give her a congrats and welcome back to the team!!


The Prize:

A $5.00 gift voucher to Smeared Ink.

Remember, be sure read and follow the rules in the left sidebar and link your project to Inlinkz by Midnight PST on Saturday May 4th, 2013 to qualify for a prize then check back on Sunday evening (May 5th, 2013)

If you are not of fan of digi images, perhaps you would like to put your winning gift voucher towards an 8.5" x 11" sheet of deeply etched, unmounted rubber instead?  Yep.  Smeared Ink's Rubber is BACK!  Check out the Smeared Ink Rubber Club for more information.
