31 Days of Halloween - Day 27

Hello! I get to bring you another fabulous tag that Alex did up. This one has a background created by stamping dye ink pads onto a craft mat, spritzing with water and then smooshing (technical term here) the tag on top to pick up the ink.  I am a bit concerned that one day she is going to spritz or smoosh me by accident, so I make certain my observational hovering is just out of reach.


Alex used a portion of a ROCKIN' stamp from Smeared Ink's Holy City set as well as that gorgeous flying raven from the same set.  The sentiment is from Mad Hatter stamps and reads "All Journeys have Secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware".



Alex then distressed the edge with more purple ink to finish everything off.  Since purple is her favorite color, I know that made her happy.  I'm currently a bit partial to pink myself, but more on THAT at another time.

Challenges:
Macabre Monday #062 - Smudged & Smeared
Gingersnap Creations #GC73 - Gothic Elements
C.R.A.F.T. #73 - Spooky
Paper Playtime #22 - Halloween
Art on the Darkside #65 - Halloween

See you tomorrow!

Happy Halloween!
Edgar

Edgar, how was your date??? What an awesome tag! I really the sentiment! Even the font rocks! You should ask Alex to make you a smock so that you don't get splatter painted!

Edgar be careful what you wish for, Alex may try to get you dolled up in pink frou frou :P Nah, I know she makes you type for food, but even she's not THAT twisted, right? :P
