Smeared and Smudged Blog Hop....

WOW Time does fly!!! Its time for the May Smeared and Smudged Group Blog Hop.  OI put my name down at the start of the month and boy did it creep up on me!!! Suddenly it was this week!!! ARGH!!! Knew what I was going to do but just hadn't got round to it. I swear someone stole a week!!!
SO this month the Theme is ANYTHING GOES.
 I decided that I would make a home for my new paintbrushes. So I have recycled a Starbucks bottle that Jake left empty in the living room!!
I thought that Rick St Dennis Art on the Brain Digi Stamp would be perfect for my creation. 
You cant quite see but the ink bottle and the eyes are glossy as I used some Glossy Accents on them.
Glass coloured inside with Alcohol Inks
Art on the Brain Digi Stamp
Colored with Promarkers and Spectrum Noirs.
Heres the Hop List!!
Black Dragon
Lady Brayton
Before I go Rick Has still got the Fabby Birthday Images he did last week on Special Offer till Monday You can find them to buy HERE!

Thanks So much for dropping by my blog, I hope you like what you see,
Love and Sparkles Hazelxox
