Smeared Ink Digi Release TODAY!

Hello everyone! I know, it's been forever since I posted, but I'm slowly getting over the holiday chaos and getting things back to normal. Today, we are having a fabulous digi image release over at Smeared Ink, and to honor that, our DT is having a hop featuring some awesome projects! I know, my post is pretty late, but I've been without internet since yesterday and wasn't able to get it up before now. Urghh! But, better late than never, heh?

The digi's will be uploaded into the shop in just a bit, so please visit later on. In the meantime, sit back and enjoy the wonderful eye candy that our DT has for you!

For my project, I used song lyrics as inspiration. It's kinda dark, but I just couldn't get this song out of my head to create anything else, so I went with it. The song is about an abusive relationship (perfect for Valentine's Day! tee hee, just kidding). And before anyone asks, no this project does not reflect any relatonships I have been in, but I do have some close friends who have gone through abusive relationships.

Anyways, I used images from our new Heart Wings and Femdom sets. It is not really a card, more of an art piece I guess that I may later add into a journal.

I colored with my new art markers, which I am very new at, so please be gentle on the comments. It's very different than using prisma pencils, so I'll have to get used to the blending. But, I'm not totally disappointed with the results.

The background hearts and wings came from Heart Wings and the bending beauty came from Femdom. I tried to keep her coloring very mute to portray the feelings of being stuck in that type of relationship.

I added crystal glaze to the heart on the bottom, and also popped up the wings. I hope you enjoy looking at my project, and be sure to hop on through the rest of the DT to see lots of cool inspiration for our new digi's! Then head on over to the Smeared Ink shop and pick your faves. Thanks for joining us today!
