Just plain weird

For some people this theme might be a piece of cake.  But I struggled with it.  Eh, it is what it is.  The latest challenge offered on the EWV Yahoo group is to create something creepy, freaky or just plain weird.  If that doesn't work, a fall theme would be fine.  I think I should have done fall.  Oh well.  Here's my entry...

My #8 tag is sporting stamps from the following Studio 490 sets:  Believe in Art (2 backgrounds, label), Visions of Art (face), Optical Art (glasses), and Original Art (weed spray).  I used plenty of Ranger Distress Markers (Tattered Rose, Dried Marigold, Spiced Marmalade, Broken China, Tumbled Glass, Barn Door, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss, Old Paper, Frayed Burlap and Walnut Stain) to stamp with and use as all over color.  Old Paper and Frayed Burlap Distress Ink pads were also used as was Jet Black Archival Ink, Turquoise Stickles and Bronze Distress Stain.  The glasses were stamped with embossing ink and Ultra Fine Copper Embossing Powder was heat set.  A Sakura Black Glaze Pen adds some doodles on the top portion of the tag.

I think she looks like she's ready for a masquerade party; love the soft colors in her hair using the markers to color the stamp.  Eh, maybe she doesn't look so weird after all.  I'll let you be the judge.


  1. Great job Susan! I like it, it's got just enough weirdness! lol! Great way to use those stamps...thanks so much for joining the MAC!

  2. She may be weird but she is gorgeous! I love her flower and glasses!!!
