Bottled FRANK!

 I have Bottled Frank and he is attracting flies!!! 
I am loving all the new Halloween Viva Las Vegastamps! stamps this year. There are three ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE new Halloween plates this year. Plates # 827 (which I am using today), 1429 and 1433.
Plate 827
Kromecote Cardstock has a glossy side and a matte side, for this card I used the matte side. I love how the ink does not run or blur when the images are stamped on it. 
First, stamp the Bottle - from Plate 827 twice on paper to use as a mask. The first image, cut the bottle image out (lower left) and the second image cut the inside of the bottle out (lower right).  Now stamp the bottle onto the card. Place the first mask on the stamped image protecting the inside of the bottle when stamping the spiked fence.  Now with the second mask over the bottle stamp Frankenstein Face - from Plate 827 in the bottle with VF Olympic Green. Heat Emboss the images with VLVS! Ultra High Gloss Embossing Powder

Next stamp the Dripping Blood - from Plate 827 several times along the top of the card with VF Crimson Red and CTM Barn Red. Stamp the Harlequin Diamond Background using VersaMark and the Fly - from Plate 827 three times with black ink. Carefully heat emboss the images with VLVS! Ultra High Gloss Embossing Powder. Do not use the heat gun in one spot too long or the images will melt together.
To give the Bottle a glass look paint it with Sakura Crystal Lacquer mixed with Citrine.  After all the images are stamped and heat embossed and the lacquer is dry, use Tim Hotlz Tea Dye Ink and apply directly to the card.  The embossed images and lacquer will resist the ink.

Stamp "Infectious Waste" - from Plate 827 on craft color paper with black ink. Cut out in a tag shape and staple Ribbon May Arts - Grosgrain - Stitched Edge to the tag. Attach to card with VLVS! Miracle Tape.
