day 12!!!!!




hello and welcome to the 12th day of Christmas smeared and smudged style!  we welcome you to join our forum! today is a smeared ink day! of course i had to finsih off this wonderful hop with a grumpie! for my project i stole inspiration from one of the bloggers on the hop, sadly i can't rememer who and i'm sorry. but said blogger did a grumpie in blue. i used a creamic ornament that i got at joann's on sale! i used blue alochol ink (i was going to paint it, but couldn't find my paints, stupid having to unpack things) then i glued the entire thing and put pattern paper on it (you know, like the tissue pattern paper stuff for sewing), then i embossed a grumpie in black, since the glue wasn't dried all the way, i got WAY more black on it then i wanted and the grumpie didn't come out right. so i embossed the grumpie with blue. it came out WAY better then i wanted it too. this just shows mistakes can work for you! i did have jewels on it, but small child said no, so i listened and took them off, it looks better without them. now get to hopping! enjoy! lisa

This turned out great! I think the grumpie looks awesome in blue. I really like the texture that you created with the sewing paper.

FABULOUS! Love the blue for the ornament AND the embossing. Would never have thought to put the paper on it, but it give amazing texture. Gorgeous! I think you should do an entire RAINBOW of Grumpies! (then mail them to ME, hee, hee!!)
