Apothecary

Well, here we are again, with another new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge!  A very timely theme of Halloween, using Halloween Colors for the next two weeks.  For my inspirational piece, I decided to create a background using a variety of Distress Inks in Halloween colors.  Images from Halloween Treats and Apothecary plates by Artistic Outpost were stamped on Specialty Paper.  Some of the images were water colored with Distress Markers and all of the images were distressed with Vintage Photo Distress Markers.  Embellishments include burlap string from The Funkie Junkie Boutique, Copper Liquid Pearls and Spider Stickers from Martha Stewart.  I hope you will check out the other inspiration pieces by the rest of the Design Team and I hope you will consider making a project of your own for a possible prize.  Full details can be found over at FSC! Thanks for dropping by.  Best wishes, Yvonne

Very menacing Yvonne.
I wonder if that is the spider which visited me very late at night last night - he was the ugliest spider I've ever laid eyes on, no I didn't scream but I certainly did not welcome him with open arms!

Ooh, that's yummy! I've been coveting that AO Apothecary set, and you've made it look incredibly tempting here... The images look fab coloured in so subtly... and I love that you've secured the poison bottles behind the twine. Gorgeous!
