Shopping Our Stash Challenge 74: Out of a Jar or Decorate a Jar or Use a Jar image/paper!





Hello!  This week at Shopping Our Stash for Challenge 74 we are asking you to use anything that came in a jar: glitter, fun flock, flower soft, perfect pearls, embossing powder, gems, primas, etc. OR use a jar image, jar themed paper, die cuts, etc.  OR you can decorate or alter a jar!   Please, if you use items from a jar, be sure to mention what they are in the post! 

For my creation, I made a tag.  I am still on a Halloween kick.  My out-of-the-jar item is Black Embossing Powder.  I inked up a tag with Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink, whose dedicated ink pad may or may not have had some Black Soot on it.  Just sayin'.  The flying bats stamp is from Hero Arts.  I love it!  I stamped with Black Soot Distress Ink and used Ranger Black EP of some kind- not the distress kind.    I used die cuts from Quickutz - it was a two die pack with moon, clouds and bats.  I added some ribbon. Easy-Peasy!    I hope you can join us this week at Shopping Our Stash!

How could those ink pads cross-contaminate? What stinkers, smudging each other when you're not looking!
LOVE the clouds over the moon - and those bats (all squillion of them) are fabulously creepy :)
