Double Tuesday again - Halloween is coming nearer.

Hi everybody!
Today it's time for a new theme at Tag Tuesday, and a new challenge at Try it on Tuesday.

At Tag Tuesday our theme this week is 'Tattered and torn'. Somehow, it turned out as another Halloween tag, what a surprise! The background  image is from Gecko Galz, and has been mounted onto some of the pretty card that Donna sent me last week. The die-cut was a gift from Diane, who cut it with her Zing.
The crow has been fussy cut and given an eye made with green stickles. The grey hairs were in my stash - perhaps one of my visiting witches left them here - and the scrap of material has been blacked with DI.




The altered bottle is a decoration I made last year.


I am also linking to Tagalong Challenge - 'Something wicked this way comes'

At Try it on Tuesday  the theme is textures.  You have 2 weeks to join in the challenge. The challenges this month  are being sponsored by Smeared InkThey are offering a prize of 10$ to spend in their online store. 
The box used here is a recycled corrugated cardboard box which once had candles in it. I painted it black, and added some Inka Gold to liven it up. The background paper is from Gecko Galz. The die-cuts were once again made by Diane - thanks! The rest is from my stash




Have a great day, take care, and thanks for coming by!

  10. Love your witchy tag and all your fabulous textures. Great bottle art, not something I have ever made so it's good to see yours. I've examined all the various embellies and the ghost carrying the pumpkin looks quite friendly and jolly - for a ghost.

  14. My favorite holiday too Valerie. What I am most curious about is the grey hair in your stash.
    Very interesting. Your tag is fantastic - that is the best witch! Your altered bottle is right up Martha Stuart's alley. She could not do better. Love the children trick or treating. Halloween colors are so much fun!!!
