Altered Items

All the images in black are rubber stamps from 
Smeared Ink Rubber Club in Archival Black.

The full set is called 

As Death.

The purple swirls and distressed book plate are stamps from 
La Blanche.

I altered some kraft paper bags and made a purple shrink plastic tag or embellishment. I have not decided yet but I have decided that that was
the worst shrink plastic ever!
I also made a little piece from a stamped image, glossy accents and Tim Holtz (memory glass/glass fragment) and Tim Holtz metal attachment which can be a bag charm, key chain or an embellishment. 
These are the kind of images found in the past in churches 
to remind people of their mortality even during happy
occasions so they are not as out of place during this season
as some people might think.    
Peace and Love, 
Vee xx
