Playing with Inks

Seems so long since I got rally inky! It's not really but it seems like it. These are my fingers after several washes so it might be a few more days before flesh colours return.
So much fun though and not that unusual in my crafting endeavours.
What caused them to be this delicate shade of blue?
Inks - dye based, of course, and glossy cardstock. Playing and making an ATC.
Using Haunted Places 1 and Killer Bo-Peep rubber from Smeared Ink
The sad news that Smeared Ink is closing the shop as of May 5th was like a body blow. They have been around longer than I have been crafting with stamps and it was a happy couple of years that I spent on their DT. The Smeared & Smudged community lives on in Facebook, thank goodness, under the watchful gaze of a couple of friends - Black Dragon and Shelley Knight. If you like the edginess of Smeared Ink - you better get in quick!

I'd like to enter this ATC into the challenge at
Smudgy Antics - Anything Goes with SI stamps


  1. Oh what FUN! Fab ATC. Love the stamps you chose and that blue is just beautiful...but maybe not for fingers. LOL Sooo bummed about Smeared Ink, too. xxD

  2. Ooooh - how jolly cool and what a fabulous colour :-D Super ATC. How long before that ink wears off then ???? LoL

    IKE xx
