"Love Hurts"

Good Evening! 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 4 of  7, for the Smudgefest Event! 


The challenge today was to create an ATC (Artist Trading Card) with a twist! The twist was anything that you could come up with! Well first I must say, I have NEVER created one of these... so I had to ask questions and do a bit of research! LOL! I have decided that they are AWESOME!!! I can't believe how much I have learned (as far as techniques and things about myself) since I have joined the Smudged & Smeared Ning Group! I also have found that I am loving Smeared Inks Digital and Rubber Stamps

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! 

Material List

Stamps ~ Smeared Ink - Shot Grumpie from the Love Li'l Grumpies Digi Set (Image) & My Own Little Mind (Sentiment)
Designer Paper ~ Crafty Chaos Designs ~ Under A Blood Red Moon Digital Set
