My project today is very simple. My daughter likes to sleep with a nightlight, and it was about time that we upgraded from the plain one she has now. SO, I decided to make her one! I do have to warn you, because of some unforseen circumstances, I did not get to completely finish my project. I plan on hanging some black beading from the bottom of the frame, and it still needs to be attached to the actual light, but you can see the idea of it in the pics.
The first picture shows it in plain light, so you can see the microbead and glitter details on the frame. I used the "Shadow Thingies" Set from Smeared Ink because I think it's whymsical and fun, and looks like it would work well in a kids room. To play along with the kid whymsy, I used watercolors to color.

This picture is what it looks like with the lights off.
Like I said before, I'm planning on adding a few more details, but I'm really happy with how it turned out and I think it will look great in the room! I'd love to hear your thoughts on it, so feel free to leave a comment.

During April, Smeared Ink is hosting it's first Customer Challenge Contest! Since we now have stamp sets in stock and being used, we'd like to reward our customers with an opportunity to win a not-yet-released Smeared Ink set!
Here's how you play:
From April 1st through April 22, enter as many online challenges that you can find using a Smeared Ink stamp image on your entry. In your entry description or entry title, be sure to label it as a Smeared Ink image (it must be labeled as Smeared ink or it doesn't count). On the 22nd, email us a list of challenges that you entered, along with the link to your entry. We'll tally them up on the 23rd and the person with the most challenge entries will win!
Here's The Prize:
Meet Jack! He's a creepy little fellow who likes to give you the heebie-jeebies. Talk about a toy with an attitude! Jack will be available to order in the future, but for now he's only available through our customer contest.
