Llorona in rubber

It's not a naughty as it may sound.
It's actually a new release in rubber
With the onslaught of digital images (which I also love, now),
it's nice to get inky with some new, exclusive designs in rubber.

The new set is called, "Llorona", and is 
only available through the rubber club. 
It is an exclusive to the club release, 
and will never be released as digital images
Got it? If you like these images, please sign up for the
Smeared Ink Rubber Club. You won't be disappointed.

I am quite pleased with  myself here. While this is a big departure from
my usual color scheme, and overall feel, it is still beautifully haunting and vintage.
I did hit all the edges with frayed burlap distress inks for a uniform color and 
aged effect.

I am getting so much use out of my new Bow-Easy.
I find myself adding bows to everything now. Well, almost everything.
My hand tied bows used to suck out loud, but now they turn out 
perfect, every time. Best $5 I ever spent. Just sayin'. 

I used papers from the "Lost & Found Two" pad from MME.
It is so much easier to use the papers from the same set, as opposed to 
trying to coordinate scraps, and misc. papers from my stash.
I'm learning. Slowly. But, I'm learning. 

I've got a couple more samples for this release coming soon. 
Be sure to stop back by to check 'em out.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:


  1. Oh Gloria this is stunning! The image is gorgeous and the card you've made is fabulous. The colouring is amazing, I love the layout and the birdies on there.
