October 7th - Day 7 of 31DOH

Well... it's DAY SEVEN of Smeared Ink's 31 Days of Halloween...a huge blog hop for you to enjoy every day

I have managed a week - only three and a half to go!!

So much amazing craft to see - do have a look -
just dip in if you haven't time for the 39 steps!

For more details hop over to Terra's Blog...there are great prizes to be won!!
 Find out about the Scavenger Hunt! 

The blog roll is on my side bar -
 if you are hopping in order you may have come from Erin
and your next stop is Creepy Glowbugg!

The Smeared and Smudged Forum also has some challenges running in October -
in particular Very Sketchy October

I used the card sketch from this as my starting point for today's card:

 I covered half the front of a white card blank with some of my fermenting grape juice background -
(first mentioned in DAY 3)
I added a banner using more of the above and a scrap of black card (from Lelli-Bot Gothic Grunge).

Then I wanted my motifs:
The main one became a tag with Smeared Ink's Devil Boy,
 coloured with a touch of purple Promarker. I added a Lelli-Bot feather too.
The next was a circle using Ike's Raven, coloured with greys.
The last three were die-cut bats...

I will add this to Very Sketchy October
Quoth the Raven Tag Along.

See you tomorrow!

Happy Crafting!
