I hope this counts towards Halloween.  It has skeleton sheep...it's gotta count!
I made this tag for the GDT challenge on the Smeared and Smudged Forum.
Jenn Borjeson has been the guest designer for Smeared Ink this whole month. She has rocked her time as GDT so I had to play along with her challenge which was to use nursery rhymes or fairy tales and give them a dark twist. 

I used Smeared Ink's "Killer Bo Peep's Build a Garden" rubber set and got inky.  The rubber is retired except for those in Smeared Ink's RUBBER CLUB.  The set is offered in digital version here. Peep has been playing with some bad Voodoo by the looks of her staff and managed to raise the dead...sheep that is.

The tag background was made with Dylusions Spray Inks and stencils.  Bo Peep and her skeleton sheep were stamped with Memento ink in black and colored with Copic markers.  I used some Spica gel pens to add some shimmer.  I fussy cut the images and glued them to my tag.  

I used an awesome, ultra vivid orange glow skull from Creepy Glowbugg Concoctions  and I used a clay tombstone from Andrea's Smudgetastic  etsy shop.  I topped off the tag with orange fibers and the "Baad seed" sentiment.
