"Ink It Up" Challenge

You know I could not resist a challenge with the title
"Ink It Up"!
If you are interested, hop on over to 
the Kraft Journal blog to check it out.
I used one of my fave seasonal stamp sets from Close To My Heart:

First, I stamped the image, with Black Archival Ink, on a "grungy tag" from 
The Kraft Outlet.  After letting the ink dry I painted the sky with a brush which was loaded with water + ink (from a TH Distress Marker).  That's how I got the spooky, streaky effect.
Patterned papers (Simple Stories 'Take a Hike' 
 are scraps left over from my adventure helping
 11 Boy Scouts earn their 'Scrapbooking Badge'.
Isn't it cool that they include scrapbooking in their program?
Anyway, I tied the tag with some of our Black Tulle Ribbon and added it to the card front.
I love how the two large stamps in this set fit the larger tags.
Hope you are inspired to "Ink It Up" today.
