Day 16 of 31: Creepy Lil Grumpies

Hello and welcome Day 16! Today's project was made for the Smudgy Antics challenge, which is to use only Smeared Ink images. So I busted out the Creepy Lil Grumpies.

Look at these adorable little trick or treaters. I always have so much fun with these guys, whether it's Halloween or not.

I colored them with my alcohol markers. I think I enjoyed coloring the ghost the most. Although he isn't bright and colorful, I like using the pale, almost-not-there colors.

So hop along, my friends, and visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creep-tastic day!
