I have started this blog to help me get my craft projects out for everyone to see. My crafts are my therapy. I find peace in creating special ideas for friends and family. This is a new adventure for me and I plan on enjoying the ride

Smeared Ink Blog Hop

Smeared Ink is hosting a blog hop today and the theme is PAINT...I was very excited about this chance to work with paint.  I don't do it very often. I thought I would give it my best shot.  If you arrived from Sara's blog you're on the right track, but if you happen to get lost there is a full list of the blogs at the bottom of this entry.

Now here is my project..

I titled it "Don't Shoot the Messanger".  This is one great stamp from Smeared Ink . She's one classy, hot lady who isn't afraid to show you who's in charge.   I found a tutorial on rangerink.com which show me how to make the paint splatters using their paint dabbers. You can find it under videos and its called Patti Splat.  It's messy but really fun. Be sure and check it out.   I also covered the entire backgroup piece with UTEE which gives the paint a wet effect.  I think this card has a mobster's feel to it.  Let me know what you think and please enjoy the rest of the hop.   Next stop is Ike's blog
