Hi bloggers,
Just a quickie before I hop off to bed to get up early for my jewellery soldering class.
I was supposed to stop crafting and do housework this evening.HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
I made this tag instead as I remembered  grungy monday has returned so here is my entry for 
Grungy Monday challenge- a Holtzian Hallowe'en.

I used Tims latest Hallowe'en tag demo on his blog as inspiration. I had to make my own resist paper as I didn't have the Hallowe'en one, but it worked quite well using my unity stamps alphabet and clear embossing powder on the original resist paper ledger, smooshed with distress inks. I have photographed it sitting on a sheet of Midnight Dreary apothe-scary 12x12. Love those papers, but CANNOT cut them even though bought two of each.

I don't have the witch die either so have used one from graphic 45 le cirque paper. The clock and the bottle are Timmys however, as of course is the glassine strip to which I added alcohol inks.

The scary clowns on the bottle of 'blood' [alcohol ink and interference red perfect pearls] are digital images from itkupilli,[printed on safmat] which you may recognise from my last weeks sunday stamper entry. I love those spooky fellas!
Gave everything a good spritzing with Interference red perfect pearls.
