This particular ATC is created for the Repurpose, Re-cycle and Re-invent blog challenge: October-Halloween-No Bones About It and the Bonus Round to use bones (skull on bottle label and of course the arm)
The recycled material I used is hard plastic packaging. To show the plastic, here is a "before" pic. I stamped the bottles on the plastic packaging and then cut them out. (I see the reflection of the sun in this photo looks like the bottles are double stamped! Too late to retake the photo-- the bottles are already cut out! And you can see in the ATC the stamped images are fine.) I printed green paper and placed it behind the bottles. I was going for "slimy green goop"!
The sentiment (an Alice in Wonderland quote) tells the story--a little too much from these bottles led to this person's demise! All that's left is a ghostly warning and the remnants of a boney arm!
I'm also entering this ATC at the Gecko Galz Papercrafting Yahoo Group Ephemera Emporium Halloween challenge due October 7. Lots of challenges here so please join in.
This ATC will head to the
Unruly Paper Arts Yahoo Group
for their Eerie ATC swap. The swap sign up is closed, but please
consider joining our group. Something is always happening there.....
