I'm Lady Brayton. Welcome to my blog!
I am participating as a wicked blogger for THE 31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN blog hop hosted by the Smeared and Smudged Forum.

For your convenience, I will keep the blog roll posted on the left sidebar of my blog. The hop goes LIVE everyday in October at 9:00am PST.
You should have arrived here from Vee's Blog and your
next stop on the hop is Lindsay's Blog.
Today is Day 17 of the 31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN
Here is my offering:

I made a non-digital ATC for you today.
I started with 2.5" x 3.5" white cardstock and stamped the "Skull" with versa mark embossing ink and poured on the black Zing embossing powder. After pouring the excess powder back into its container and spilling a good bit of it over my desk, I heat embossed the image. I then inked the background with a few colors of Distress Inks (brick red, rusty hinge, and the limited edition yellow from the spring collection). Next, the "Chain Link" was stamped twice with black Memento ink. The last stamp was "Raven 1". I did the heat embossing bit again. All stamps were from Smeared Ink's
"Quoth the Raven" set which I own in rubber.
I added some grays to the skull with copic markers and painted some highlights onto the raven with Copic opaque white. The white was a little bright so I added some black distress ink over the white to dim it down. I cut random triangles into the paper and then trimmed the atc to a smaller size and mounted the remainder to a 2.5" x 3.5" piece of shimmery black card.
Smeared Ink is bringing rubber back for those in the Rubber Club.
Click this link for details and you can own this set.
It comes on an 8.5" x 11" sheet of deeply etched unmounted rubber.
Thank you for all of the kind comments you have been leaving me :)

Although this is not good enough for a win, I wanted to enter my ATC to the Quoth the Raven, Nevermore Challenge of "Anything Poe's" to support my friends :)
