"Inspirational Art Hanger"

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!
