Sugar of Lead is POISON! Viva Las Vegastamps! Halloween Party - Day 2

To review my "TEXTURE" challenge post for "ANYTHING BUT A CARD" please CLICK HERE.

Welcome to Day Two of the Viva Las VegaStamps! Design Team's Halloween party that goes everyday through September 29th. There is a prize for those who leave comments on every post on each stop of the hop, too! I will giveaway a fabulous blog candy prize at the end of the hop drawn from all new followers of my blog.

We've got a full week of HALLOWEEN inspiration, blogs, prizes, contests and - each day will feature a different way to be entered to win a prize. So plan to drop by every day for your chance to win.

This spooky card heeds warning of "Halloween Future".

I took a scrap of bright yellow cardstock stamped the "Poison" stamp repeatedly in rows, filling the entire sheet. I crumped it up, flattened out and inked with Old Paper and Weathered Wood Distress Inks. Then I cut the paper in to strips to mimic police line tape and adhered to a black cardstock base with miracle tape. This looked fantastic the way it was...but I wanted to add more. I stamped the bottle, tombstone with pumpkin and sugar of lead label on varying colors of tan paper and added color with my Ranger Distress Markers applied with a water brush. I grounded the bottle with a strip of scrap of paper I had painted with punchinella. I finished off the bottle with Sakura 3D Crystal Lacquer to give the bottle a glass feel. This card is eerie with a vintage flair.
