 Well it seems the only time I post here these days is when I have a tag to share.  This month's tag was fun!  I really enjoyed the metal tape technique with the alcohol inks to color them up a bit to distress.  I did not have the typewriter die and was too lazy to try and cut on on my Cameo so I dug up myGrungeboard shapes and decided to make a Halloween theme instead.  I used white paint on the skull and crossbones and then used the rock candy crackle paint with a little distress ink over the top.  A piece of black cardstock behind the eyes and colored clear rhinestones with my alcohol ink pens that I filled with the alcohol inks.  They really work great to color the rhinestones.  I dug out my little bottles for the potion and filled it with some funky "POTION" really cool glitter.  The paper is from my last year's Stampin up stash.  I used the gears to funk it up a bit and called it done.  I frequently start the tags and it takes me a while to actually finish them.  I do like this one the most so far, but we'll see how the rest goes.  Thanks for taking a peek and leave a comment if you dare!
