Smudgy Antics Challenge and Smeared Ink Blog Hop Day 2



This weekend my son and I made a trip to odessa to pick up a few needed things and pay a few bills.Stopping at a smoke shop I found a beat up old cigar box for $2.00....and I thought to myself Smudgy Antics challenge piece...so I bought it.
My first altered cigar box...
I used a Smeared Ink stamp and Tim Holtz distress Ink and went to town.

 I added some Tim holtz ideologies for handles and finished the project using duck tape and Tim holts ideology legs.
I used manilla folders cut to size on the sides.Distressed in tea dye and walnut stain.
I hope you join us this week at http://smudgyantics.blogspot.com/
and I used one of my new red rubber stamps from http://www.smearedink.com/
check out the rubber stamp club there.
See you in the challenge and welcome to Day Two of http://www.smearedink.com/
Thanks for stopping in and all the kind comments.
hugs,
susan s.
