Spooktacular Tag!

So for the past few days i've felt a tad uninspired, I must of sat at my desk for hours just staring into cyberspace wondering what would get my mojo going again, Then I remembered Tim's 12 tags..
So I got out my supplies and got to work.
And this is my take on October's tag
I didn't have the die Tim used so I went with the bell jar, I sprayed the base with 'crushed grape' dylusions, I cut the jar part from the dies packaging and edged with rock candy stickles, topped with a smidge of black glitter and then spritzed with a little 'fresh lime' dylusions when the glitter was dry.
I was very lucky as I had just received the new distress stickles dry glitter and a few other goodies as a prize from Crafty Boots after winning their card challenge.
I mixed up a little batch of the black glittter as directed by Tim and covered the mini skull which was placed in the bell jar. I finished with the little ticket same as Tim.
My background seems to look very flat but it does have sparkle honest.
So that's me done, Still not managed to kick start the old mojo but i'll keep trying!
Till then..
Stay Inky

It's really cool, Nicky! I love your glittery-edged bell jar, and the skull looks fab... cracking colours in that background too. It's got mojo for sure, so if you feel yours is still missing it's cos you loaded it into here!

Oooh this is a great idea. Love the way you've used the bell jar. I bought some of the dry stickles on Saturday but haven't got a clue how to use it yet except as ordinary glitter, lol!

I love your take on Tim's tag, that bell jar is a fabulous die (on my 'wish list'). Love how you used the glitter on the bell jar. A really lovely tag. It looks like your mojo has returned! A x

Yeah for the bell jar die. I used it, too. Then I just had to make one with the Boo, 'cause it such a spooky shape.

I love your take on this months tag and adding in the lime dilusions gives the glitter an aged look almost like there is a bit of slime growing there. If this is you without mojo betting your even more incredible with it!!
