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.
