"Bloody Good Night"

Welcome! Smeared Ink is having a daily challenge all this week to kick off their new weekly challenges that will be starting on the Smudgy Antics Blog!  Today is Day 5 of  7, for the Smudgefest Event! 


The challenge today was to create using a "flowing medium"! Some examples are watercolors, liquid inks, liquid glues, thinned out acrylics... use your imagination and let the juices flow! This is my first attempt at using Twinkling H2O's and Creative Inspirations Paints! I have only done a little with acrylic paints on wood and Rust-oleum paint on metal! (Ya know, outside where you could make a HUGE mess it really didn't matter! LOL!) I have NEVER done this on paper! I definitely need more practice!!! LOL! Thanks to everyone at Smeared And Smudged for giving me that extra little nudge to get started! I needed it! LOL!

I will run through the rules real quick... The rules to these challenges are you MUST use a Smeared Ink Image (Digi or Rubber) and you Must complete each day's challenge by midnight PST! And that is it! There are Daily Prizes and one HUGE Grand Prize for one lucky person! (To be eligible for the Grand Prize Drawing, you MUST complete all 7 days of challenges! Whew!) 
Well this is what I came up with, a picture! 

The photo below is Twinkling H2O's & Creative Inspirations Paint Only!

This photo shows the front covered thickly with Stampin' Up Crystal Effects!
