Tag It On

Have been following this challenge with interest for months now but have never had a chance to take part and then this morning at 9am this fortnights challenge - Nightmare - caught my eye and look 1.5 hours later I have a tag done! (amazing what you can do when the children are at their Grandparents and you are avoiding the housework isn't it!):

Have used a T!m alterations halloween embossing folder, sprayed the tag with Crafty Notions Black Matte colour spray and Silver Cosmic Shimmer Mist, then inked it with Ripe Persimmon, Seedless Preserves and Black Soot distress inks. 
The bottles and labels are by Graphic 45 and are inked in Jet Black Archival Ink with the labels stamped with Royal Purple, Mustard and Pumpkin Stazon inks then inked with Old Paper Distress Ink.  The bottles are inked with Pine Needles distress ink with the tops finished off with Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed and Pine Needles distress markers with the cork on the third bottle being inked with Old Paper distress ink.  All bottles have been rubbed around a bottle of distress stain to curl them and then they are mounted on two lots in the middle and one lot on the edges of 3d Foam to keep the rounded shapes.  Looks great in real life!  Finished the tag with a skull charm on string and a piece of muslin dyed with Black Soot distress stain.

I am entering this into the Dragons Dream Tag It On challenge.  It also fits in with theHaunted House Design challenge this week which is skulls and bottles so I am entering it in there too.

Thanks for looking - Still excited about the Olympics from Solihull

Okay... I could NOT have done the blog hop and am glad I opted out. WOW, such wonderful paper projects!
I do have a friend that does extraordinary paper crafting, though... so will direct her over here and to the other hoppers.
