Halloween Tag from Tim Design Team

Halloween is getting close, so get your stuff out and make some tags!!!!

Just a correction from the last post. The Ten Seconds Studio mold is a design from Magenta. Thanks Cheryl.

I've been saving this tag, hoping to get a better picture of the piece, to no avail. If you get the colors good, the sparkle is gone, and visa-versa. So you'll just have to use your imagination.

It's a Ranger Inkssentials Manila Tag with various Distress Inks to start with, Rusty Hinge- Dusty Concord- Black Soot, that's embossed with the Texture Fade folder Cobwebs. I then sprayed it with Perfect Pearls Mists, Perfect Copper and Kiwi.....can I just say....WOW! I LOVE these mists...a wayyyyyy cool product!!!

I lightly added the Black Soot DI to the embossed areas of the web for more contrast, then stamped the little spider from Hero Arts 3 times to fill space, and added Black Soot Distress Stickles.

Using Tim's Happy Halloween ticket stamp from Odds and Ends, I stamped on manila paper with purple ink, and embossed with clear Super Fine Detail powder. Then I sprayed the paper with Kiwi PP Mists. VERY cool when you see it in person, sparkly, getting a good picture is not easy.

I painted with a brush on the Ornate Plate using Alcohol Inks - Lettuce and Terra Cotta - until I got the level of color I was looking for.

The On the Fence die was used on heavy chipboard and Suze's Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel powders in Pearl, Black, and Bronze were added in layers. First coat with Pearl, and then sprinkle the other 2 colors in as you heat. It's a very cool look, I think! Add the fence and bookplate with foam squares. It picks up a blue hue in most pictures...this one shows how it's really more silver.

The Ornate On the Edge Die was punched for the bottom of the card. A reverse piece was cut from black cardstock and layered behind the tag. I edged with a Copper Kryon pen and added green rhinestones.

The piece of Chain Link was added to the Fragment Facet and Scared Pumpkin faces from Seasonal Paper Stash were glued with Glossy Accents to the back of the Facet. I liked the toggle on the chain for some reason, it looked I added it to the chain.

Add some ribbon and you've got a fun tag for Halloween.

Have a great weekend. We'll be in Davenport, Ia for classes on Saturday at Scrapaganza, after a side trip up to Galena on Friday. Hopefully we'll get to LeClaire for some rummaging around on Main Street in the shops , too. Bill loves the Carmel Corn from up there.

Create ART!
