Good Morning Everyone! I hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving (US) and a wonderful day (The Rest of The World)! Michael and I didn't do much; mostly relaxed and watched a movie! It was wonderful!!! Today I am very excited to share with you that I am a Guest Design Team Member at the Forever Night Challenge Blog! The challenge is to create a dark and creepy piece of artwork using the Distress/Grunge Technique. I must say, since I am new to my Distress Inks, I had to do a bit of research for this challenge; but I think it turned out awesome! I love it so much it is hanging in my craft room as inspiration! Smeared Ink is sponsoring this challenge, so be sure to get your creations entered as the wonderful prize is A FREE DIGI SET OF YOUR CHOICE and to everyone that enters there is a 10% Off Coupon on your next order of Smeared Ink Images!!!
