July Smeared & Smudged Hop

Hello!  Today Smeared & Smudged is having their July member blog hop.  The requirement this month was for us to alter a 3-D object.  And we had to include a stamp(rubber or digi) somewhere in our project.

I decided to alter a metal tin I had laying around…



I love punching holes in metal!  And I finally used some of the sculpture paper I made.(I learned how to make it from a tutorial found on Smeared & Smudged)

Heart image from The Graphics Fairy.  Other stamps are Martha Stewart and Studio G.

Here’s the list of all the stops on the hop…

Wickedly AWESOME! I love the sculpture paper and the contrast between the hard metal and soft ribbon. Just beautiful, darkly beautiful that is! The anatomical heart rocks!

Thanks for hopping with Smeared and Smudged!

Susan said...

This is great, and I thought that was semi-crumpled duct tape. great job! I haven't tried that technique yet.
Just one confusion on my end, are you Madeliene or Laura?

Laura B said...

Thank you, ladies!!

Susan, my real name is Laura, but I've used Madeleine on a lot of my online accounts. Madeleine was my great, great grandmother's name. I've been transitioning to my real name on a lot of my accounts, but S&S is one of the last places where I still use Madeleine. Hope that clears things up a bit.:)
