31 Days of Halloween - Day 20

Well, today I was presented with quite the quandary.  Alex gave me a stack, all be it a short stack, of completed projects and told me to pick one to share.  Excuse me?  I am the talent, not the worker bee here.  There seems to be a bit of confusion as to what the roles are.  However, since Alex looked a bit tired and flustered (and I like to eat) I decided to help her out.

I selected another one of the Halloween tags.  I really enjoy sharing the tags and I know Alex likes making them. 
The background color for this one was achieved by splotching dye ink pads on the craft mat, spritzing with just a tiny bit of water and then putting the tag down on top of the whole mess to soak it up.  The image is a stamp from Third Coast Stamps and one of our favorite lovely ladies.  The dark ground was created by sponging on some charcoal chalk ink.

I have also decided this tag will be Alex's entry into the Macabre Monday challenge of  A Lil' Lurid & Lovesick.  A vampire hanging out at her lover's grave, yep- that qualifies in my book!

Challenges:
Macabre Monday HDH #061 - A Lil' Lurid & Lovesick

Tomorrow is another lovely lady who seems be 'working' the dead angle.  Hope to see you then!

Happy Halloween!
Edgar
