Hi and welcome to my blog! I hope you are having a good day. I want to share a Halloween tag I made using a neat technique. I mentioned this technique before, but I will show you how it is done today.
I saw this technique on line and just loved the spooky look of it. I patted Mustard Seed, Dusty Concord and Broken China Distress inks onto the center of the glossy card stock tag and patted Black Soot Distress ink around the sides.
Next I spritzed the whole tag with water. You can see that the colors are running here.
I then took my finger and started with the outside black and ran my finger in circles. I then went in and blended the colors in the center together and pulled in some more black. This is the finished background!
I stamped over the tag using a script background stamp. I then used the Sizzix tree embossing folder and a Cuttlebug spider web embossing folder to dry emboss the tag. I went over the raised areas with Jet Black Staz On ink.
I colored the owl and placed the Tim Holtz Splatters stencil over him and sponged on the spots. I added the wooden pumpkin beside the owl and glued the "boo" buttons to it.
Lastly I added 3 confetti bats to complete the tag!
Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great day!
