Day 2 of 31 Days of Hallowe'en with RSD

Morning all,
If you're following the blog roll order you will have arrived from the awesome Susan.

For full deets on this Freaking fantabulous Blog hop organised by Smeared Ink and The Smeared and Smudged forum, please hop on over to Terra's blog. All the info on the days sponsors are there as well as any other info you think you might need.

Today is my turn to show my wares at Airless Chambers with Rick St Dennis. Rick is sponsoring the hop everyday by the way.
I also have another tag to show you. This time showing just one of the images available from yet another one of the sponsors of this fantastic blog hop - Altered Pages.

The image I have used here is from the Halloween Children collage Sheet.
The orange base of the tag was embossed with a spider folder and given a wash of black acrylic paint. When dry was sanded back a bit.
The Altered Pages picture adhered before adding stamped images - the baby and the hat wearing cat - both from Rusty Pickle. A length of ric-rak braid coloured orange with promarkers and a little kiddies felt pumpkin shape followed. Another quick tag - suitable for a child? I think so.

Today for Rick St Dennis - an altered candle holder.

The images used were Madame Macabre, Graveyard Phantom Rest and an archway from the Smeared Ink Haunted Places Rubber set that I am fortunate to have a bit early.
They were coloured first with promarkers before scanning ready for printing onto the transfer film.














The finished shade


I tried two different coloured candles, lit and unlit and these are the best I could get I'm afraid.
I hope you won't hold it against me.




 Thank you for looking. And off you pop to the very talented Loren.

See you tomorrow.

  2. Love all the layers on your tag. Fabolous job on the candle holder. No worries on the pictures, sometimes cameras just don't want to play right.

  3. Love your collaged tag, Helen. That fat little baby cracks me right up. Your candle holder is beyond fabulous. So hard to get pix of these kinds of projects but I'll bet it's just stunning in person. xxD

  7. These are great!!! Love that tag!!! The candle holder is great, I know what you mean about the pictures though, last year when I made the lantern for 31 days we had to go in the basement and turn off all the lights to get the best picture and it still wasn't the best!!! Wonderful job!

  10. I like the scope of your two projects from super cute to a little creepy. I'm not sure what transfer film is so not quite getting how you accomplished the cool candle holder.

  12. The tag is a nice mixture of images and texture, wonderful halloween-colored. The candle holder looks different depending on the candles inserted - I like both of them!
