About Me

My photo
I would classify myself as an artist. It took me a while to finally accept that monicker, but that's what I am; AN ARTIST!!! I have a wonderful hubs that supports my "talents" in most all avenues, except maybe when the credit card bill comes in the mail...LOL And I have 4 great kids and 5 beautiful grandchildren that I love to pieces. Come on by and sit a spell and "STAMP 'TIL YA CRAMP!!! & "CROP 'TIL YA DROP!!!"

TAG....You're it !!!

I'm tagging in the next Guest DT to join in the macabre world of 

This has been a blast this month working with some 
great themes, great digis and very talented ladies.

This weeks challenge involves a strange brew of sorts.
So here is the recipe you must follow to play along with us in the dungeon this week.
Begin with 2 layers (actual card counts as one layer)
Add 1 main image panel
Mix in some metal bits of your choosing
Add some drops of black pearls
Gently fold in 1 punched element
Tie up nicely with some ribbon or trim

I didn't quite accomplish all of the recipe but most of it.
I didnt have any black pearls, nor did I use some metal bits. 
But all in all I did follow most of the recipe. 
We are sponsored this week by

Strange Skin has a unique selection of digital images
that pander more to the horror hounds and macabre minded.
They have darkly beautiful images too. You should check them out
and decide for yourself.

So I'm ending my time with this lovely below:

The image I chose was toe tag.  I love it!!!

I colored it with color pencils, and some chalk. Printed another image to cut out the tag to make it more dimensional.
Found an old obsolete dictionary and torn out pages to use 
for a background (inked them).
Then I used an old magazine for the lettering...ransom letter look. 

This is the inside of the card. 
I made a tag card and adhered it to a piece of cardstock.

Check out the pages that I chose from the dictionary.

Well, that's it for me and I just know the next DT member that I tagged in will not lie down on the job and their work will be drop dead fantabulous!!!

See ya when I see ya!!!!

Until later, wannabe coroners......Gotta play footsie split.....TFL!!!!Photobucket
