2 ATC's: Day 8 of the 31 Days of Halloween

Hello and welcome to Day 8 of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween! I've got 2 ATC's for you today. One is for Wicked Wednesday, and the other is for A Step in the Dark.

Wicked Wednesday is sponsored by Delicious Doodles this week and the theme is Feathers/Wings. I love this raven digi.

I added a wee bit of color and spray to the raven, and I stenciled my background with Dreamweaver's Damask stencil.

This "creepy" fella is from Dilly Beans, who is the sponsor for the latest A Step in the Dark Challenge. I colored him with colored pencils.

I used a fun purple luster to emboss the sentiment, which is from Recollections. So I'm off to make more Halloweenie stuff! Please visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, listed in my sidebar, as well as the 2 fantastic challenge blogs I am playing along with today. Thanks for stopping by. Have a fang-tastic day!

Two wickedly cool ATCs.
I like the background and the touch of coordinating golds on the Raven card.

The layers and the shine used with the Creepy sentiment really make it stand out.

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
