I have been in total card making mode that I forgot I could make other stuff...lol! Well, today I bring you something other than a card using an image from a great Halloween set from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff, which is on sale at My Grafico! Ever since she debuted the set Vintage Halloween Labels I have been itching to use it.
So today I bring you....Grow you own skeleton! Cool, eh? I love the way it floats in the mason jar...Good and creepy for Halloween decor.
The inspiration for this project came from the label itself...Skel-E-Grow...All I did was buy a plastic skeleton and jam him into a mason jar filled with water. The skull actually had a piece of invisable thread attached to it for hanging, so I stuck that under the lid which is why it floats like that. I used some Shimmerz spray on the black paper under the image on the tag and finished it off with a layered flower and rhinestone brad.
The top was decorated with a coordinating image from the set as well... I just noticed that I didn't age this image with brown distress ink, like I did with the the one above. Hmmm. I think a fix may be in order here.
Here are all the labels in the set...
And one more shot of the jar. Just because I love it and think it's cool ;)
It will have the perfect home on my hall table next to my mummy votive's I saved from last year.
