Come Fill the Cup That Clears

There's a new challenge out there in blogland where, the bi-weekly winner gets to wear the crown of Queen of Darkness. Click on these words: DARKNESS INSPIRATION....and it will take you there. This November's theme is BATS... those as depicted in Come Fill the Cup I believe fit the bill!

The DAQ October ATC Challenge was "Spooky" The image below of The Sorceress was my entry.

The link to DAQ will take you to the site where over the next few days more images following that theme, either digital-or digital-hybrid will be posted ; with commentary by those in the exchange and other site members.

The haunting original hand-painted photographic image of the Sorceress was created by Adelaide Hanscom in 1911.

The animals depicted are from The Public Domain.

Tha back-ground moth-design cloth is by me.
