Wow, only 11 days till Halloween.
This month is just flying by!
I have been getting back into my running the last few days, and so I haven't had as much time for crafting.
Don't despair, I have a fun offering for today!
I appologize ahead of time for the pictures,
this product is hard to photograph! But it's one of my most favorite products and techniques to use!
That's right, you've all seen it before (and you'll see it again!)
It's the aluminum tape at work again!
This time I dry embossed it using Tim Holtz gears embossing folder.
I then put the tape on the tag. Then I used my alcohol inks in plum and green
(sorry I forget which one I have)
to add some color to the tag... then I ran the tag lightly across my staz-on black ink pad
this just picks up parts of the gears and highlights them!
Ok, enough talk... here's the tag!
I used a pretty image from Dilly Beans, and I'm gonna play along with their Cute and Creepy challenge
I colored her up using my copics and prismacolor markers.
I then added some glossy accents to the hearts
Here's her close up...
Isn't she lovely? The hearts were die cut using a Sizzix die cut that I rescently got.
I added a little doily behing for some interest, and I distressed that using my peeled paint distress ink pad.
I am also playing along with Cut it Up Challenges: Eek, boo, ahh Halloween.
The BOO is grungeboard letters that I painted first, and then covered in the glitter!
I LOVE glitter! Kitty even had some glitter on his face today from playing in the craft room with me!
I'm also playing along with Alphabet Challenge Blog: Anything Spooky (or not?)
