31 Tags of Halloween: Day 27

The hardest part of this morning's tag was choosing the paper background. I can't remember if I made a tag similar to this one, but, what can you do?

All materials are Tim Holtz for this tag including the Halloween paper stash, Halloween ephemera, and Halloween Trimmings. I also used good old Glossy Accents, Distress Marker in Black Soot and Distress Ink in Black Soot.

First, I traced and cut out my tag and glued the paper to the tag. I inked the edges in Black Soot.

Next, I cut out the words 'POISON' and the carbolic acid label from a piece of the Halloween paper and inked the edges in Black Soot. For the skelly ephemera, I used marker to edge it.

I added Glossy Accents to the back of the ephemera and glued him into place. I repeated for the carbolic acid label and the 'POISON' label.

There was a small snippet of thin, sparkly ribbon left so I used that up on this tag.



Now to finish off my Halloween cards...they'll be a little late this year, but that only extends the holiday, right???

Taking Flight

This week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge  is to make something Christmassy. Seems odd for October, but what can you do? 
I had an idea for a vintage plastic reindeer but as I assembled supplies, my idea shifted a bit. 
Supplies: Tim Holtz Vignette Tray Yupo Paper Tim Holtz Alcohol Ink in Pitch Black Blending Solution Archival Ink in Jet Black Tim Holtz Tree Line Stamp Vintage Plastic Reindeer Acrylic Paint in Black Glossy Accents Recollections Vintage Glass Golden Glitter - previously dyed with the Alcohol Ink in Pitch Black E6000
I had the alcohol ink background from a previous project. First, I added a pool of Blending Solution to the Yupo paper and then added a few drops of the alcohol ink. I shifted the paper back and forth until about 3/4 of the paper was covered. I added more alcohol ink to make it a bit darker and shifted it again. 
Once dry, I added straight black alcohol ink to the white band for the horizon. After it was completely dry, I sealed with a few coats of …

WIP Wednesday: A Cozy Fire

This little number is almost complete and I just want to shrink myself down so I can live in it! There was a lot of trial and error, but I think it is turning out great and I've learned a few things along the journey.
