I Can’t Shoot You- There’s a Law Against It

This chick is pissed off! I’m not sure who made her so made, but I’m glad it’s not me!!!


This is my latest card for Smeared Ink. I broke out the tried and true Chicks Dig Guns set. I love this set. It’s crass and full of sass! Yeah…that was cheesy. But it’s true! Check her out! In her skivvies with a loaded rifle. Looks like she tried to make her opponent dance a bit. See those bullet holes on the bottom of the card? My guess it was a dude that ticked her off…


I inked her up on some textured white cardstock. I wanted to give this card a gritty, grainy feel. She’s done up with my colored pencils. I had found the “I can’t shoot you…” piece in my box of “Mom to Go” from K. & Co. I thought it was hilarious, and it inspired me to make this card. But I thought it needed a second line…so I made the “But I wish I could.” I inked it with Tattered Rose & Milled Lavender Distress Inks, which I also applied to the background of the card.


Sorry that this photo is a bit blurry. But you can see the texture I created with the ink pads. It added more grit to the card.

I am off to enjoy another beautiful day with my kids! Have an inspiring day!

I love this. Fabulous job. The texture is great and the scratchy writing for the sentiment second line is wonderful!
