May Smeared & Smudged Member Hop

Hello!  Welcome to the May Smeared and Smudged Member Blog Hop.  You should have made your way here by way of the wonderful Black Dragon.  If not, the entire hop list is below for your convenience.

Our theme this month is “Anything Goes”, so there should be lots of amazing projects along the way.

I decided to also play along with the current challenge at Smudgy Antics, which is to “Alter a Box”.

Here’s the box I started with…


And here’s what I ended up with…


Here are more views of the various parts…




(quote is from Lip Gloss and Black by Atreyu)

It is just the right size for my mini dominoes.


Digi stamp is from Smeared Ink.  So is the barbed wire stamp, but it’s from the Smeared Ink Rubber Club.  I added a little bit of Diamond Glaze to the top image.

Thanks for looking!  Your next stop is Kristy.  She’s sure to have something awesome for you to see.  Happy Hopping!
