I was intrigued by this softly toned Skeleton from Collage 3091. It's not your ghoulish guy, but a muted rendition.
I began by decoupaging torn vintage text pages to the base tag. Then used an ink pad to randomly cover the tag, leaving some areas without color.
I fancy cut the skeleton parts and glued them down on the paper.
The real fun began when I mixed some brown reinker with water and soaked a piece of cheesecloth to gain an aged effect. Allow to dry on the CLOTHESLINE!The dyeable seam binding was added to the water ink mixture. I added some black and dipped the ribbon, removed it and added some red and dipped it again. Each time a bit of the ink stayed on the top of the water and created a mottled coloration.
I removed the wet ribbon from the ink water onto a paper towel to take away some excess water, then rolled it into a ball in my palm and allowed to dry as is.
This will be part of my Halloween decor.
