31 Days of Halloween - Day 9

Today Alex has deserted me and left me to post all by myself.  She has this 'thing' she is out doing (her first full marathon) and for some reason just doesn't think she will 'feel up to' helping out afterward.  WHATEVER.  I know that I could do it if it was me.  Not going to do it and prove it, but sure I could.  However, since she is not here and can't edit anything, I brought in a friend to help me out.
Let me introduce you to a very dear old (and I do mean old) friend Cari-On Inaba.  She is a retired ballroom dancing teacher and currently one of the judges on the hit show, "Dancing With Scars".   I am hopeful Cari-On will help me get prepared to audition for the next season.

Now- on to what Alex has created and left for us to share with you today.  It is another tag with a scene on it for your viewing pleasure.
This tag was first stamped with the image and spider web.  Alex then used several colors of distress inks to create the glow around the candles.  The candles have diamond glaze on them to help create look of wax.  The book was colored with a gold Spica pen to mimic the look of plating on it.  Have to say, that even though she is slacking absent today while I am posting, I do like the item she left me to post about.



Happy Halloween!
Edgar
