Purple, Green, & ivory

This weekend's challenge on Tag You're It.
I decided the combo could be good for a Halloween tag. I was having a really bad day at the art table-two efforts for other challenges had tanked. I started this one and it was going well until I tried to stamp the witch-the EP on the spider webs had not all ironed away, and even though I was stamping with Stazon-you could still see the web. I thought really quickly and grabbed what I thought was the black EP-it wasn't. It was black flock, which led to a completely different look, and one I would not have tried! Who knew? I inked up some matching flowers-wait-does everybody know that you can make coordinating flowers with your ink pads? These I just applied direct ink-then dried them with the heat gun-then stamped with black ink. These flowers were already green and lavender, but not Shabby Shutters and Grape! So this is an example of a happy mistake and make do with what you have!

Really cool job Susie! Purple and green are one of my favorite color combos .... I bet your other attempts for the day are not truly as tanked as you might think .... one persons "tank" is another persons treasure :)
