31 Tags of Halloween: Day 2

Well, lunchtime was one whirlwind of crafting! I grabbed supplies this morning, not 100% sure what the tag was going to be, but I knew I wanted to use some cut-outs. I have this neat little EK Tools punch with a snake, a spider, and a bat on it. I threw that in my bag, unsure what the day would hold.

I flipped through the Tim Holtz Halloween stack of paper and saw a mottled-looking black design that I thought would work well. I punched and punched until I had a respectable stack of creepy things.
The bats appealed to me today so I grabbed all of them and set them aside. for the tag, I opted to use Distress ink in Stormy Sky and Black Soot. I inked the blue first and then filled in with black and edged the tag in black as well.

Next I picked out some Tim Holtz Halloween Clippings stickers that I felt went with the bats and the colors. I edged the stickers in Black Soot and stuck them to the tag.

I had put all of my inks away and realized I didn't edge the bats so I grabbed a handy black permanent marker and edged them all. Once they were edged, I glued them onto the card with Glossy Accents.

I like the simplicity of this tag and am still deciding what kind of string to attach to the hole up top.

Now to give myself a moment to have a cup of hot cider and plan out the rest of the month's tags...
