Smudge Fest Day 1

Day 1 of the Smudgefest is Mixed Media and I'm really excited about this smudgefest.  I've been wanting to show some of the great rubber stamps that I've accumulated over time.  It's playtime!! 
I began by stamping the image onto a tag using Ranger's Archival ink, grabbed my Copics and began with the hair then onto the skin.
Copic Pens used: 
E000, R50, E21, BG10, C2, C3, C7, C8
I also used Tim Holtz's Shattered Stencil carefully working around image.  Used Distress inks:  Spiced Marmalade, Black Soot and Black Distress Stain around the edges of the tag.  Finished it off with a sealer and a black velvet ribbon.  Embellishments added, the handcuff and the firearm. 

I loved the feel of the kindy-ness in this image.   Hope you play with them over at Smeared Ink
Hope I inspired you.
