Today was off to a bad start with my alarm not going off. Good thing I have a cat that likes to scream in my face to wake me up... After showering and packing up my lunch, I grabbed a whole bunch of craft supplies and decided to hope for the best with today's tag. Since I have time before work, that's when most of my crafty magic happens.
I grabbed a tag and eyed the Tim Holtz Wishbones and decided one of his Halloween paper dolls needed to be holding one. I sifted through the package until I found the perfect witchy woman. I put the wishbone on top of her hand but didn't like how it looked. I grabbed my razor knife and carefully cut around her hand and slid the wishbone under it. Perfect!
I wanted the tag to look dirty and moldy so I chose Distress inks in Forest Moss, Vintage Photo, and of course Black Soot. Glossy Accents was again my glue of choice and I used the Tim Holtz Halloween Clippings stickers and his black tinsel Trimmings.
For the tag, I inked on the Forest Moss first and then added accents of Vintage Photo. I edged the tag in Black Soot.
I didn't like how you could see a bit of the tag behind the paper doll's hand, so I added black marker on the tag as a sort of camouflage. With the glue dry, I bent the paper doll's hand around the wishbone so it looked more like she was holding it.
I glued the paper doll in place and added the tinsel as a hanging string.
This tag came together pretty quickly and I like how the colors of the background blended together.
