Theme Thursday, Dragons Dream TIO, & Mixed Media Monday

Well this one piece covered 3 different challenges that I love to participate in. Theme Thursday is "Vintage Tag"; Dragons Dream TIO is "Say it with Numbers" & Mixed Media Monday is "Play Things". Awhile back I was experimenting with aging tags using coffee and baking them in the oven. Made the house smell real good, but didn't really like how they came out. I used to much coffee and the tags came out very dark. So this one was perfect for my Ouija board, looks alot like wood. All the stamps I used are from Oxford Impressions "Haunted" series.
Yea... back in the 70's my mom would play with the Ouija board with us. It scared me to death. Glad to say I know longer rely on a board for direction but I look to the Lord. Still I think the stamp is awesome, brings back funny memories of old play things....
Hummmm I predict you will be creating something in the future.... oh just go and have fun with your paper and scissors... :)

Toni, this is awesome! I bet baking the coffee-soaked tags would make the house smell delightful. I wonder if there is some way to soak tags in cinnamon. Love how your tag turned out and also pleased that your guidance comes from a much better source than the Ouiji board.

Great tag Toni Loved the idea of coffee to color. tea is also good but doesn't leave your tags real dark. try beet juice for a real kickin red. Love mom
