Welcome Frightful Fiends and Scary Ghoulies to

31 Days of Halloween!
This is a month long tribute to Halloween and Day of the Dead sponsored by Smeared and Smudged and Cajun Stamping Queen. Every day in October we will both be featuring a seriously scary, creepy, or haunting project for you to view.

To get the spooky schedule of events, please read my sidebar where you'll find all the information about challenges, projects, and the HUGE BLOG CANDY worth well over $150 that we will be giving away to one lucky follower at the end of the month!

Since today is Thursday, we have coordinated our projects and offer you a themed challenge. Our cards today are based around skulls, and your challenge is to share your own skull based project by linking it to a comment at the end of this post! Easy peasy...

Here's my skull themed card:




This card was made using a Sugar Skull Digi stamp from MyGraficO. I then covered the skull with Omni Gel so that I could have a "transparent" look. The background of the card was made using sanded grout!!! Yep Sanded Grout is what I said. It gives it a great texture and when you use your heat gun on it, it also has great texture. I also used black paint to give it a look of depth.

If you'd like to participate in the challenge, link to your finished skull project in a comment below this post. And don't forget, any comment will get you Blog Candy points! See you tomorrow!

Using grout in cardmaking? I'm starting to view DIY in a whole new light.
Great work.
