This weeks challenge at Smudgy Antics : Dear Heart

There are a few changes in rules for the Smudgy Antics challenges:

*Your project can be anything (card, scrapbook page, mixed media, altered or 3-D item, etc) as long as it is handmade and stamped somewhere with either a rubber or digital stamp. We have taken into consideration our digital artist fans and will be allowing all-digi projects. Feel free to think outside the box and have fun with your project! We are all about looking at things differently and look forward to the variety of projects and mediums we are sure to see.

*You must use AT LEAST 1 Smeared Ink image on your project. You are allowed to use anything else that you like.
*This rule has changed. To encourage more participants, any stamped image may be used, however only projects using at least one Smeared Ink image will be eligible to win a prize. Encourage your crafty friends to come play with us.

*You can only enter and qualify for a prize if you are, or become, a follower of the blog.

This weeks challenge is "Dear Heart"

And here is my entry,I made a page in my Art Journal, I used the bat wings of the Smeared Inks digi "a little bit batty". The heart is a Double Do die and it is embossed using Cuttle Bug embossing folder.

I made the background with a magic stamp, it's a foam block you heat with heatgun and then press into anything you want to make a stamp of. I used the heart embossing folder to make a stamp and used that as my background.

here is a pic of the foam block

The fun thing s that you can re-use it, just heat again and the image disappears, heat and press in something else.

cool huh!

I was just playing with it and tried it out in my Art Journal, it is just a quick and easy page but it was fun to make it. That is the main thing, having fun so some and join this weeks challenge
