Use METAL with Smudgy Antics

Welcome back for another fortnight challenge with Smudgy Antics!

The theme for this challenge is to use METAL in your projects.
 Of course you can always use Tim Holtz or other brand name pre-made metal embellishments, but we find it much more interesting if you use metal from an actual hardware store, scrap metal, found metal objects, recycled soup cans and aluminum pop, soda, or fizzy drink cans, etc.

Use your imagination and see how clever you can get using metal while still using a stamped image somewhere in your project.  As we always say, the more creative and inventive, the better your chance of a win so get your tin snips ready and make something that will blow us away!

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 27th, 2013 to qualify for a prize then check back on Sunday evening (JULY 28th, 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.
