not quite done yet......

hello guys and welcome to smeared ink thursday! sorry this post is coming late and not quite done, but our new house is slowly becoming the money pit. the plumbing did go horribly bad, but now all is right with the world, sort of. so my project is half finished, i'm planning on making this for alex's challenge here, so come and join us so you can play too!!!! for my take on the challenge, i'm totally ripping alex off :) (when you steal an idea, it's always good to admit it). i must say in my defense though, i've been thinking of doing this for awhile, because i'm tried of all my little pieces of ripped off envolpes address floating everywhere. due to plumbing all that i finished is the front page, but it's cool, cause it's awesome! i stamped holy city from smeared ink onto a music sheet. i tried to cut out 'address' on my cricut, but i had the pressure set to low, so it didn't come off the paper, i got a little mad, then decided to make it work (thank you tim gunn). so i inked it with green and white to make it stand out. the base paper is an index card that i inked up with green, peach, and aged paper. a poof and a key thing finish it off, when it's really finished i will show you again! enjoy! lisa
