Terra and Tori, the owners of Smeared Ink and The Smudgy Antics Ning Forum have dreamt up this fabulous idea of getting any DT teams (that want to take part) to play against each other. To see who shines out in the challenges that are to be set. If there are any other teams willing to get stuck in, the full details are here, on the forum. The first challenge, to get the ball rolling, was set by themselves. The DT never got a whiff of course until the challenge was posted. The winning team of that round gets to choose the theme for the following challenge, and so on.
So the scene has been set
Now, for my part was, what to do?
I hope you're sitting comfortably, this might take a while
Delving into my box of bits, generously donated by a dear friend, I came across this.
Paint next. Two coats of green acrylic paint on every thing
The stamps used are from the Killer Bo-Peep Build a Garden. I'm lucky to have this in rubber but there is a digi set here. The spiders, skulls and flowers were all stamped onto tissue paper and stuck down. The spiders web is from a discontinued SI rubber set (Candy Is Dandy - digi version here) and was stamped straight onto the furniture using stazon.
Plenty of Vintage Paper DI
Some wooden embellishments from Crafty Emblies. These were daubed with Forest moss DI and some of the acid green paint wash.
Tiny white paper rosebuds
Trug is home made from a small scrap of copper.
Here it is
The splatter part of the challenge.... that's the white. made from equal parts white acrylic paint and PVA glue, slightly watered to give a splat without loosing too much depth. Then, when dry, dotted the top with black. Well - it is garden furniture!
Any other DT out there wanting to join in the fun and games? A fabulous blog badge for the winning team. All details are on the forum as I previously said.
