Day 2 of 31 Days of Halloween

Wow!  Yesterday was a great first day for all of us Wicked Bloggers.  Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment.  So this is Day two of the Smeared Ink 31 Days of Halloween.  I'm sure if you hop along again today you'll get some creative tricks and treats!

Ghoulish Greetings

 It's funny how things work, it took me a really long time to think of my project for Day 1, but this card here popped right into my head.  I hunted for some cool orange paper and the stamped it up with some batty bats. Then  I stamped the large skull onto white paper and cut it out and glued it down.
 I found a scrap from an old book and dropped a little citron ink on it and glued it below the skull.  Then I Grabbed the Ghoulish Greetings stamp, stamped it on white, cut it out a little crooked and inked around the edge.
Kind of funny, I just noticed the text on the piece of paper simple.  That is indeed how this mini card felt after struggling with my ideas for this 31 day hop.  So far I'm 2 for 2 - I plan on keeping it up, but I know it is not going to be simple.

The background is really cool. Is that the way it came or did you add some inking for texture look?
