Tag Tuesday: Z is for Zymurgy

I'm fortunate to have quite a few friends who are librarians, one of whom gave me the word, "zymurgy."  My tag says it all, so I will keep you in suspense for the definition.  Here's a hint: I used my current favorite substrate--beer cartons:

I knew I wanted to use the woman from the DoubleTake carton, so I cut her out.  I also chose a few elements from the White Hawk carton. It took a few days to determine how to arrange the elements and what kind of background looked best. Once I decided on a chalkboard, I sprayed a scrap of cardboard with chalkboard paint and free-handed the definition and ornament with a chalk pen.  It took many tries. Here's the result:

Did it cause you to do a Double Take?  :-)

Most definitely very clever and wonderful results making use of re-cycling (oh how I love that!).
Laura, thank you so much for your kind comment regarding my Lily Elsie tags and my passion for photo real stamps. I am having some fun with a few Tattoo Ladies that I know of (have you met them yet yourself?!!!)
