Wicked Wednesday!!!!

Here it is Wednesday already. Man, the time flies
when the kid is gone away at camp. I had great plans
of things to accomplish uninterrupted, but alas, episodes
of "Oz" and "Supernatural" and "Being Human"
were begging to be watched on the DVR.
I am a weak ticket.

I did however, manage to make a project (or three) for this week's
HDH - Macabre Monday challenge of
"Toe tags and Body Bags".

You can either make a tag or a bag. Easy enough.  
I actually altered a tag from a pair of jeans that I just bought.
It was this awesome chipboard tag that I just knew I had
a reason to keep.
I decoupaged some favorite images and some mulberry paper for
texture and interest. The Plague Doctor image is from
fellow minion, Andrea, and the cherub is from an image
 I used previously for the"Love Bites" challenge.

I also got to use some rubber stamps that haven't
seen ink in ages. I Stickled and added a dew drop
eye to the good doctor and also gave him a fancy
beaded charm to hang from his beak.

I also have these really cool digital tags I got some time ago on
Etsy that I aged and heat embossed with super thick embossing
powder and some iridescent glitter. Then I cracked them to give
them a shattered glass effect. I added a hand made coffin
charm and some funky fibers to tie this one all together.

I aged a toe tag image (I think it's an invitation) that I found on Google,
and added it to a smaller aged, cracked tag with some jute.

And here is a glimpse of the iridescent glitter.

Please join us this week for our
"tag 'em or bag 'em " challenge

Sooooo, next week's challenge is the one I am sponsoring with
a $20 gift certificate to my Etsy shoppe.
I will be adding more items to my store this week so there
will be plenty to choose from.
I'm going to do things a little differently this time, so read the rules for
the challenge carefully so you can qualify for a chance to win 
a free gift just for leaving a comment.
