Smeared and Smudged and Punky Too!!

It's that time again!  Time for the Smeared and Smudged member blog hop!!! If you've just stumbled across my little blog today, welcome! You can start the hop here. If you're playing along with the hop, hopefully you have come from Lisa. Fun stuff huh?

So...about this hop. Want to know what our theme is? How about a using METAL?  There is metal to be found somewhere on all of the projects here in this fabulous blog hop. Simple enough, but brads and eyelets DO NOT count!!!!!   No special rules except to follow the Smeared and Smudged standard rule to include a stamp in your project. I'm so excited to show you what I've created for this hop, and hope you stop by all the other creative girls to see what they've come up with (scroll down to the bottom of this post for the master list of all the stops on the hop)!

Oh, and you know how my title says "Smeared and Smudged and Punky Too"? Well I've combined 2 assignments into one for this post, 1-the metal for S and S, and 2-a fabulous sketch from this week's challenge at Punky Scraps. I was so very happy with the sketch our talented Jodi came up with, so versatile and fun, I hope you'll give it a try and link up this month for your chance to win something special from this month's sponsor, The Crafters Workshop.

here's the sketch:


and here's my layout:


Can you spot the metal? I used it in 3 different ways: 1-embossing my "hello" stamp in silver embossing powder for a metallic shine. I also added a bit of embossing powder in the top right as a messy sort of photo corner. 2- the beaded fringe across the top left corner has silver beads incorporated in the strand. 3-the circles across the bottom of the photos are punched out of aluminum foil, scrunched up for texture, inked a bit, and then layered with cardstock, buttons and embroidery floss. A very fun and cheap way to make and handmade flower-ish embellie! Enjoy! =) T
