July S&S Memer Hopping Ducky

Welcome to another great blog hop with the members of the Smeared and Smudged forum!

(you should have come from the super talented Black Dragon)

This month we were given the challenge to alter something....simple enough for me I love to alter...my only problem was what......so after thinking and looking threw my stash I remembered my blog friend Carmen and her blog where she has altered rubber duckies...so I tried my hand at it...not bad for my first try...

whadda ya think of her? isn't she a cutie? I painted her purple then covered her in modgepodge and paper towels....I stamped right on the paper towel...because after all this is a smeared ink hop...and I love to stamp!my stamps came from the Smeared Ink Candy is Dandy set...I put a web on each side and gave her a heart.....awwww...cute...put jewles for eyes and tied a ribbon around her neck...so looking at it I thought it was all sweet and cute and I was going to start over with another duck...until I showed my hubby and he said "whoa thats f***ed up...I like it" so I decided to keep it...that was such an awesome reaction! I already have more duckies on the way so stay tuned...

but for now be sure to hop along and see what the other members have altered for you...your next stop is going to be Jane...

here is the hop list in case you get lost :)

Kapree... I love this little ducky that you have done! Hmmm... note to self, Modge Podge and paper towels! I have never done any altered art stuff, so this is all new to me! I love the stamp set from Smeared Ink! That must be an old set, as I don't remember seeing it in the line up! Thanks for sharing the inspiration! Happy Creating! Sara
