Halloween Tag

Hi Everyone! It is time for making another tag for Tim Holtz's tag challenge! Each month he is combining 2 techniques from the past to use on the tag. You can see this month's techniques here.

I cut up a sheet of  Tim Holtz's Halloween patterned paper from the Seasonal pad and made a collage with them. I applied clear crackle paint over the entire tag and let it dry. I took a black watercolor crayon and smudged it around the seams and edges of the tag.

I used a cuttlebug pumpkin die and cut from bronze metal. I then ran the pumpkin through a polka dot embossing folder and colored the dots using a black Sharpie pen.

The spider web is an svg that I added to the upper corner of the tag. I also adhered some confetti bats to the tag. The saying is a stamp from Just For Fun.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great day!
