Day 17!!!!! Smeared Ink Friday!

 Hello and welcome! Wow 17 days in and you guys are really doing wonderfully! Thank you for coming to see me each day!
Today is Smeared Ink and I used the crow is from Poe. The background was a blast to make! I started with a due date card, and inked it up with pink distress stain, then brown distress stain. While it was still wet I went over it with blue pearl ex. Then I stamped the image with black ink.


The 1st picture is without a flash and this one is with a flash. The other day I was playing with tea dying and new distress sprays and that's how I got the bottom paper. The butterfly went through the same steps as the paper.
Now Teresa has something awesome for you! Enjoy! Lisa

This is a very different effect.
I like to see new things to try myself later.

Spooktacular! I love how you created all the layers and to recycle over spray paper is always a must and to have it look all rusted is just icing on the cake...hmmm, cake...now I want a cupcake....ciao!
