Mary of Cardz TV Stamps

Here is my project for this challenge:

....Because if I wanted to be welcomed into "BOO"-ville, I'd definitely expect a tasty beverage!!  :) Sheldon Cooper would recommend hot tea or cocoa, so something tells me that a Bottle of Boos... would not quite make the cut for him!!  But thank goodness he doesn't get to decide what tasty beverages we're serving in Boo-ville!!  ;)

To create my project, I started with a plain, glass, long-neck bottle (I'm thinking it was a Jones' Soda bottle as The-Boy-Child and The-Girl-Child are both addicted to those...).  The-Love-Of-My-Life worked his magic to transform the bottle into a rusty-looking creation...  Since I love, love, LOVE to up-cycle, I'm glad he enjoys turning my boring bottles and cans into wonderful canvases for my projects!!  :)
In case you missed the last tag I made that was kinda sorta like this one (antiqued and stamped and oh-so-FUN), I picked up this fabulous background stamp from my Paper Playtime DT Sister and friend, Lucy...  I've probably stamped 100 of these tags to use on various projects -- I just love how the background is so quick and easy to create!!

I hand-lettered the "Bottle of BOOS..." on Kraft cardstock then fussy-cut around the sentiment before mounting it on black cardstock and fussy-cutting a thin border (and, of course, I sponged a little brown ink on the edges for some extra distressing).  Pop dots behind the sentiment allow for a bit of dimension.  That cute little ghost with the glow-in-the-dark googly eyes is actually an upside down "owl" that I punched using the Stampin' Up! Owl Punch (I just had to trim the little feeties off so the ghost didn't have alien antenna!!)...
My "BOO!" tag features that awesome-font sentiment from the K Andrew Designs "Fall-O-Ween" Stamp Art Set...  I added a strip of burlap and a length of homespun fabric ribbon around the center of the bottle because I thought it was as much fun as a label...  Plus the orange pip berries add a bit of extra whimsy, dontcha think???  :)
And there ya have it!!  A Bottle of BOOs that everyone is sure to enjoy with a giggle!!  :)  Of course, if you're having a Halloween Party or Get-Together, you could always try this idea with the bottles of beverages that you're serving to your guests -- They don't have to be empty and up-cycled to be FUN!!  :)

I hope I've inspired ya to make something for the challenge too!!  To link up to the Paper Playtime Challenge #86, please CLICK HERE -- I can't wait to see what you create!!  :)
