Use Embellishments with Smudgy Antics - Week 1 of 2

Welcome back for another fortnight challenge with Smudgy Antics!
The theme for this challenge is to

Use Embellishments.

We couldn't have made it any easier on you guys and gals this week!
Just make sure to use a stamped image (rubber or digi), add some embellishments and be sure to read and follow the rules posted on the left sidebar of the challenge blog and you are golden.

Get creative and don't be afraid to think outside of the box.  We embrace all forms of stamped art and love seeing original and diverse projects.  You may enter cards, scrapbook pages, tags, atcs, altered objects, mixed-media projects, etc.  The more creative you get, the more likely you are to be the chosen winner of the challenge.

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 SEPTEMBER 21st, 2013 to qualify for a prize then check back on Sunday evening (SEPT. 22nd, 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.  Please note, only one (1) gift voucher may be used to purchase rubber stamps.
