day 24!!!!!

hello! can you believe that there is only one week left!!! wow! today i have a tag that may not look too halloweeny but is going on a halloween bottle of wine gift, so hopefully that counts. i love how the background turned out on this one. it's a blend of old paper and the blue distressed inks. i do not go lighter to darker when blending inks. i know it messes up the lighter ink, but i get better results when i go darker to lighter. i did the blue ink and while it was still wet i add the old paper. for the owl, i covered white paper with the old paper ink, to clean off the blue ink on it, so it made a cool looking color. (i hope all that makes sense) i used distressed embossing powder for the owl. added some flowers and done! head on over to the sidebar and get to hopping! enjoy! lisa
