Welcome back for another fortnight challenge with Smudgy Antics!
The theme for this challenge is "IN THE WILD" .  We want to see how far you can take this challenge.  The more creative and out of the box the better! 

If you are totally clueless, you can use an image of something found in the wild or you can create a scene that depicts being "in the wild".  You can even use actual elements of the great outdoors such as twigs, sticks, leaves, flowers, feathers, and stones, etc.

Please read and follow the rules posted on the left sidebar of the challenge blog to qualify for a prize.

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

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.






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 JULY 13th, 2013 to qualify for a prize then check back on Sunday evening (JULY 14th, 2013) 
for the chosen winner.

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.
