HDH164-Bare Bones.

I have participated again this week over at Haunted Design House Challenge Blog. A real challenge it was too, but overall I am pleased with the outcome of my efforts.
Our next challenge is :
Bare Bones

Free Skeleton Clipart

So basically this challenge entails not using embellishments, so CAS (clean and simple).

I decided to make a tag for the challenge cut from mountboard using the Tim Holtz Tag Die. This was then inked using Black Soot Distress Ink. I then whisked up some washing up liquid in a bowl to get some nice frothy suds. The tag was then dipped into the suds and blasted with the heat tool. This creates a wonderful grungy background as the suds react with the ink. I then stamped my images using an Oxford Impressions Halloween Stamp Plate, fussy cut and adhered to the tag. Instead of ribbon I decided on some chain link to hang the tag.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by and read.
Hugs Fiona.
