Smudgefest 2011 is Here!!! Day One

First of all, a Blessed Lughnasadh & Happy Lammas to all!

All this week, from August 1st thru the 7th, Smeared Ink is having a challenge extravaganza!!! Each day a different challenge will be posted along with guidelines & a special them. Those who would like the opportunity to win awesome prizes, make a project, card, scrapbook page and link it up before midnite that day. A winner will be chosen randomly each day for a cool digi stamp. If you complete all 7 challenges, you will have a chance to win seventeen (17) awesome digi stamp collections worth 275$ Holy Moly!!!! All the particulars can be found on the Smudgy Antics Blog

Today's challenge was to create a Bi-Polar project, showing 2 things that are opposites. I chose to do a card which will go in my art journal depicting a woman who to the outside world is submissive, a people pleasing doormat, but on the inside is raging, wanting to kill everyone and anything who treats her as such, even herself. Smeared Ink's Femdom digi image called "Spreader Bar" portrays the submissive woman perfectly, and the larger image inside of the gun-totin' mama is from the rubber stamp sheet "Chicks Dig Guns". The coloring of images is a combo of Derwent Inktense Pencils (I love 'em), colored pencils and Tombow markers. I also used the bullet holes from the "Chicks Dig Guns", as well as a grave stamp from Gazdina's Stamps (no longer in business). The embellishments were from my stash & they were all put on a gate folded card.

Hope I haven't offended anyone.
