Day 5

 hello and welcome! thank you for all the lovely comments! i have made it to some blogs and some i haven't, but i will get there. if you are new are just happened upon this, then go here to see was is going on. today i have an altered light switch. it didn't quite turn out like i wanted. i used some blue and green distressed stain on it and it beaded up into this nice little circles. i had sanded it down so some of the ink went into the lines. it looked great! then i added smeared ink's (it is smeared ink day too, every friday you will find awesome smeared ink stamps in the hop) skull.
 
well, when i modpodged everthing, the ink smeared. i let the ink dry for days too, but the cover is not really a porus surface and the ink won't stick on it too well. as you can see in the corner, a few splatters stayed with it. i do like it like this, it reminds me of old wood. now head on over to my sidebar and get to hopping! enjoy! lisa

Nice accident though (I have had a few of those). What a wonderful idea though to change up switchplates for the holidays. How fun is that. Thank you for sharing your ideas.
