Wretched Wednesday Bare Bones

Better tardy than dead!
I am alive, but still a bit "off". Okay a little more "off" than usual.
But I did manage to actually produce something for this week's challenge.
Bare Bones - no bumpy embellishments or dimensional creations this week.
More along the lines of a clean and simple, but cleanliness is not
really in my repertoire.
 
I went with a tag this week, featuring an insane image from
Rick St. Dennis. I was inspired to create a tag after watching a Stamp-tember tutorial
by Tim Holtz. It was perfect for this "non-dimensional" challenge, and it gave me
a reason to use some new stamps and more of my unused Ranger products. 

Who doesn't need a Zombie Stripper image?!!!
Isn't she just wonderfully wretched?!
I have a few RSD digis from last years designs, but he has come out
with so many new and horribly twisted Hallowe'en themed images this season.
I picked up a few more, with plenty still on my wish list.
He is a fabulous artist and just recently had a DT call on his blog.
Congrats to our own Croms, for her recent DT spot!!!
Check out her blog to see what she created to really wow Mister St. Dennis.
   
I intentionally left off the seam binding ribbon at the top
for this photo. I didn't want any real dimension at all on this tag.
Rules is rules!
I had fun using Distress Inks to create my tag background, and adding
lots of strange and awesome stamps that I have been collecting for years.
I love all of the (non dimensional) layers and overall dirtiness of it. 
 
There is still plenty of time to come up with something flat, but not boring,
for our Bare Bones challenge.
Deadline is Sunday the 9th, at 3PM CST.
 
 
  
And now for the naming of last week's Gruesome Twosome.
We had a ridiculous level of talented submissions last week
for our Bad Moon Rising challenge.
It was near impossible to narrow it down to only two and our prize winner.
Good thing the Minions are an opinionated bunch. It's a group effort every week.
