blog hop with smeared and smudged!!!!!

hello and welcome to the smeared and smudged member blog hop! what, you are not a member? i give you a minute to head on over there and sign up! k, back to my project. my friend leann (who has a blog here, that she just started, so if you have a minute please show her some love, thanks!) got these really cool inks that are supposed to be used on fabric and lace and such (sorry, i can't remember the name of them). i went over to her house to play and of course i can't do things the way they are supposed to be done. first i mixed the inks, cause i'm messy, then i decieced to  try them with stamps. this is the result of my first try! (every try after that didn't work out so well) i love the aged look of this. in the bowl thing the color looked like poo and i was trying to soak up my mess. it turned out to be a cool color.
i love using food cans for storage, but i don't like them plain. i was going to cover the whole thing with paper or fabric first, but i like the look of it uncovered. for this hop, we were supposed to use something metal, the can is tin (is that conseried a metal?) and i put 2 washers on. on this side i used a stamp from tattered angels, smeared ink and stamppidouns (i truly have no idea how to spell the name)
i added this cool ball ribbon, but first i wanted to spray it green with my spray stuff. so, i'm happliy spraying and it runs out! i do not have the joy of a scrapbook store in my sad little town. so i left it as is, it still looks pretty cool, just not finished :(. now get to hopping! enjoy! lisa

I think it's awesome even if it;s not finished! Love that trim...and the color DID turn out really cool!

Great job! I kind of like the partially altered trim--a happy accident perhaps? TFS

Pretty cool. Industrial meets rustic! I've never tried stamping with paint, but it is on my to do list. Thank you for the inspiration!

Love the recycling/upcycling idea Lisa! Sorry your paint ran out, but it looks good anyway. Great project
