Halloween Test Tubes

Hi dearies, I hope you're having a great weekend. I can't believe it's already October. As part of World Card Making Day yesterday I was busy in my studio, but I wasn't making a card. I was creating these Halloween test tubes. I found a pack of Martha Stewart tubes yesterday at Michael's on sale. I wanted to buy these last year, but I couldn't find them. The first photo was taken with my iPhone so I could play with the fun effects using the Lo-Mob app. I like the photo; it's fun and a little creepy!

Here's a more modern picture of the test tubes. Thanks to a very nice gift from Ivy, I have some cool Provo Craft dies to create the black tags. Using a paper punch I cut out various patterned paper from a Martha Stewart pack. This morning I happened to see these Halloween test tubes that Kerry made and I was blown away! As an homage to what Kerry created, I used the "specimen" stickers that came with the test tubes to create my own "Vampire Blood" and "Spider Eggs" tags.

Here's a collage with a photo of each test tube.

Thanks for stopping by!
