This week's challenge theme is:

Many people think the mystical powers of the full moon are capable of inducing erratic behaviors.  It has been argued that there is an increase in arguments, fights, psychiatric hospital admissions, crime rates, homicides, emergency room calls, accidents, etc.  Ask any nurse, police officer, teacher or anyone that deals with the public on a regular basis and he or she will testify that there is truth to Full Moon Madness.  If the full moon can affect regular humans in bizarre ways, don't forget about its affect on Lycanthropes!  That would be a horrible, possibly deadly, mistake!

Are you a believer or a skeptic?  What represents Full Moon Madness to you?  As always, feel free to let your artistic expression fly freely.

You do not need to make a card for this challenge. 
We also accept and encourage art journal pages, scrapbook pages, mixed-media pieces, sculptures, ATCs, Fat Book pages, jewelry, etc.  Just remember to use at least one stamped image(rubber, clear, or digi) and follow the rules listed on the left sidebar to qualify for the prize or the coveted "Top Three" badge.
 I went a little mad myself and forgot the madness bit....but all of the creatures i used are a little strange so maybe i just used artistic licence.
 I made a MATCHBOOK.....using ATCS...... i've been wanting to do one for a while and hope that some other folks might want to swap so i'll be listing MATCHBOOK SWAP on the SMEARED AND SMUDGED FORUM in the next day or two...... :) I'll just show you 4 pictures although there are many more....
 All of the images are from SMEARED INK....CREATURE FEATURE. I kept them simple black white grey and yellow promarkers to colour. The moon/clouds is a CHERRY PIE stamp..... and loads of black in to distress the edges. The match book is very easy to make and a template will be available on the SMEARED AND SMUDGED FORUM for the swap.( click on the freak show flashing logo to check out the forum!) I hope you'll join us this week...... you dont have to go mad...just use a FULL MOON like i did!
I'll enter the following challenges.... THINGS WITH WINGS. ANYTHING GOES MONOCHROME SHOW US YOUR STYLE. ANYTHING BUT A CARD ...i used old brads i pinched of the girls to fasten ny matchbook together. BLACK/WHITE AND ONE OTHER COLOUR. ANYTHING GOES LINKY PARTY
Thanks for visiting BDx

  14. I'm a believer! Loved your introduction. Your ATCs are amazing, they could have been part of an ancient set of oracle cards. Totally awesome. I really like your work.
