Ah, Beloveds !! ... The sisters of darkness at SMEARED & SMUDGED FORUM hath again set forth Challenge #5 to all who toil in Design Teams for other Masters and Mistresses. They doth challenge us to bring forth our most accomplished works and do battle against each other.

Forsooth - such cunning a theme was laid down this time by the Victors of the last Challenge..... Us at QTR.... YaY... and the Challenge hath been dubbed "TOOTH & CLAW".
The Minions of The Master hath risen again to the quest and hath produced fineries that doth astound the eye.
Feast thine eyes thusly.......

If thou hast a hankering to enter such a Quest, thou must compete in Teams of 3 under the title of thy masters' realm and, having submitted thy creation, thou shalt be judged by thy peers and votes cast. The Victors shalt choose a Theme of their liking for the next Challenge, and receive accolades from the vanquished and a fine Banner to display within thy Realm.

So, I bid good fortune to all other adversaries.

So don't forget... go HERE to cast your VOTE for your fave DT in the Throwdown Challenge.

** Forget ye not that thee may still enter QUEST 21 at QUOTH THE RAVEN...... ANYTHING "POES" until 5th JUNE 2013.


Beloveds - herewith doth we find ourselves midway twixt the allotted time for thy current QUEST.
For thine inspiration I offer thee a re-visit of a work I produced for the sisters of darkness that doth name themselves SMUDGY ANTICS. 'Twas for a Quest akin to 'Movies' if memory doth serve me rightly, and the image doth illustrate the eerie tale by The Master.... "The Cask of Amontillado". (Image by IKE - available from Smeared Ink). Shouldst thou wish to read the sorry tale - it abideth HERE.

Thou hast until 5th JUNE to enter thy creations in QUEST 21....Anything POES.
Placeth thy creations at Mr Linky on the Blog Post below :-D 

Now - The Master hath seen that the Beloved Followers are in number - 94. This hath pleased him greatly and much excitement and elation doth reign within his Realm with his Minions that the magic number of 100 draws near !!!
He is busy as we speak preparing a worthy Prize - to be hailed when the esteemed and prized Followers doth reach that number :-D
