Today's theme is LABELS. There are many stamps out there featuring labels, but my favorite by far is the Raven Claw Tea stamp. It's spooky, it's vintage, and I love it. I decided to make this an old, distressed card. I found a neat paper pad from Teresa Collins at Hobby Lobby the other day and in it were these label sheets. I cut out seven of them to put on my card. I took my cutterbee scissors and distressed all the edges, tore some of the edges and then inked them all with DI Vintage Photo. The DP cheveron pattern also came from the Teresa Collins collection and I distressed it as well.
To make the focal image with the Raven Claw Tea stamp, I used five colors of Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks and some glossy card stock. Then, using DI Black Soot, I stamped the image two times. I used my heating tool to dry the ink. I trimmed each label down and used foam tape to place one on the other. I then used two layers of foam tape to adhere the image a little off center. I found a scrap piece of Halloween word paper and cut out three of the words, inked them and used pop dots to add them to the three corners.
I think this turned out very well. I like the distressed look of the card and it gives it just the right amount of spookiness. I sure hope you enjoyed my card for today. I look forward to seeing you tomorrow for Day 11. Tomorrow's theme is one of my favorites..just think Brad Pitt, Robert Pattinson, Bela Legosi.
