October Tag 2012

I finished my tag just in the knick of time!!!Here is my entry for Tim Holtz's October Tag 2012.  I made my glitter out of purple twilight and slate alcohol inks since I did not have perfect black.  I also used the grunge letters from Tim's alphabet pack.  I didn't' have the spooky chit chat so I stamped one out of the extra sticker that surrounded the set of chit chat that I did have. I am also going to submit it to the Creative Chemistry Challenge for Oct.

Challenge for Creative Chemistry 101

Here is the front and inside of a Halloween card that I made for one of my daughters.  I love making the leaves out of grunge.  I painted them with dabbers then applied bronze stain to give them a real look.  Of course I distressed them on the edges and the veins of the leaves.  I painted the fence with black dabber then embossed with some black embossing powder. Thanks for a chance to win a $25.00 Gift Certificate to Inspiration Emporium in this challenge! And thanks to Nichole M. Lewno who is sponsoring it.

Anything Goes Holiday Challenge

Here is my holiday anything goes creation for Creative Chemistry 101.  I just love making these little boxes...I used Tim Holts's pumpkin and acorn die.  Love how the crackle paint retained the walnut stain for a grungy look.
