What's Going on This Month?
There are so many exciting things happening this month with Smeared Ink and Smeared and Smudged that I thought it warranted a news post all to itself!
First, Smeared Ink is hosting a brand new weekly gallery challenge! You can find all of the information on the Smeared Ink Website on the news page. The best part of the challenge is, YOU will get to pick the winner! That's right, after the entries are posted, you get to leave a comment and vote for who you think should be added to our gallery. Then at the end of the month, the four weekly winners will battle it out for a chance to win the monthly prize! Even if you aren't interested in participating, we'd love to have you come on over and vote. We are in week one right now, so hurry on over and join in the fun! Our first entries will be posted and voting session will begin this Thursday.
Next I'd like to mention that Smeared Ink is sponsoring the May sketch challenge over on Rubber Stamp Chat this month. If you don't know what RSC is, it's a wonderful forum where stampers commune to share all their fabo rubber stamping creativity! We are offering a free stamp set as the prize, so check it out when you have a sec. Also on RSC this month, their bi-annual rubber stamping online convention. Lots of amazing stamp companies will be running virtual "booths" with wonderful specials! Smeared Ink will be participating and offering some specials, and it is well worth the visit! It runs from May6-10 and you can check it out HERE. Just click through to the virtual convention thread on the 6th.
Finally, here is some Smeared and Smudged Forum news. All of our May challenges have been posted, which include our Very Sketchy sketch challenge, our Oh! The Horror Inspiration Challenge, Rock N' Rolla Inspiration Challenge, and our Twisted Tutorials Challenge. You can view all of these by visiting The Challenger group in the forum. We have two fabulous sponsors this month, Stamp It Crazy and Stamp Happens, who are offering some wicked prizes! These challenges last through the month of May, so be sure to take a gander.
Also, in case you haven't heard yet, the Smeared and Smudged forum will be moving to it's own website very soon, so be on the lookout for an update. If you are already a member, you should receive an email over the next couple of weeks that invites you to join us at our new location. If you're not a member, now's a great time to join us! We have lots of exciting things going on and great people to inspire and be inspired by!
So I hope you get the chance to take a look at all the exciting things happening this month, and I look forward to seeing you at the challenges and convention!
