FINALLY some time to get inky!
UPDATE-Click On Friends in ART Header for recent POSTS!
Vacation was wonderfully relaxing. We both had a great time. The weather was simply gorgeous even though the fishing wasn't the best.
My analogy to character our last day there was....
Fish caught today = 2
Trips to bakery = 1
View from the porch at sunset = PRICELESS!

This is sitting on my coffee table for the kids to see....it may make it's way to the Granddaughter who LOVES and lives for Halloween though.
The Happy Halloween is embossed. The bats are die cut from black chipboard. I used a white pen, of course to create contrast.
The large tag was sprayed with Dylusions Spray Inks.
I die cut the 31 and added several different colors of UTEE and dulled down with Sepia Archival Ink I rubbed over the entire surface. They needed a bit more, so I outlined with black permanent marker.
Don't you love the little owls on a branch???
The Skull is stamped with Black Soot Distress Ink and embossed with black Embossing Powder.
Add a bit of white pen to the teeth and eye socket, spider webs, and spiders.
I added Black Soot Distress Stickles here and there to kind of grunge it up a bit.
The last step is to glue the large tag to Black Chipboard and cut around it.
I wanted to use the BOO die-cut on this, but it proved to be just too large.
BUT, I'll show you it because the UTEE turned out soooooo cool on it.
I pushed it into the black embossing ink and then into the black UTEE.
When it's still hot, I sprinkle white, green zinnia, and tiger lily UTEE Brightz to it and melt just a bit. Too much heat makes it into mud...or all blended together. So just heat it a tiny bit to melt.
This shows how cool it turns out with different colors sprinkled in.
These pieces made their way to my "Little Ghoul." Shrink Plastic...
And here is my stunning granddaughter Britta...the oldest...the girl who lives for Halloween and the Haunted House detail she gets to work at on the weekends in October. Those are goggles on the top of her head...she's lunging at you from an angle.
I personally would never have recognized her if I'd run into her on the street.
This piece is hanging in her place now!
Love ya, Britta!
