October 17~ 31 Days of Halloween Challenge Day 17~Friday Smeared Ink Day


Welcome to Day 17 of 31 Days of Halloween! Each Friday the optional challenge is to create using a stamp, rubber or digi, by Smeared Ink. Remember to pop over HERE to Terra's blog to see the daily Scavenger Hunt prizes donated by our awesome sponsors and find the daily clue. You can also see all the rules there, too. For your reference I have the Wicked Blogger Hop list on the ride sidebar:)

For today's picture I used my favorite Grumpie Digital Stamp as well as Cloudee, both offered by Smeared Ink. Under the photo is the recipe if you are interested:)

The digis are colored with Distress Inks and a water brush. I used Sharpies and Bic Mark It pens also.

Layered under the images is tissue paper colored with Distress Ink.

The skeleton paper was a free digital paper from The Coffee Shop Blog. Check it out if you have never been there, her papers and Photoshop Actions are awesome, so much cool stuff there!

Under the skeleton paper is some Tim Holtz tissue, Melange.  The substrate, shhhh don't laugh, is a scrap piece of cardboard.

I think that is it for the recipe, please ASK if you have any questions:)

~Hugs~ and thanks so much for hanging in there with all of us!!
