I finally made my October Tim's Tag - I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it - but couldn't seem to find the time to sit down and do it!
Here is Tim's tag
And below is my version. I used black embossing paste on the Halloween Stencil. I also dabbed on Distress Stains - not having any of the new Distress Stain Sprays yet - so the colors look much brighter - I also forgot to mist the tag with water before staining - so that probably had something to do with it as well! But I like the result!
Instead of a stamped pumpkin and spider - I used the Candlelight Fright die for my spooky candlestick and spider.
When I was moving around the BOO Alpha Chips to see how they could fit on the tag - I realized it looked like the spider was grabbing the first O when I moved it up a bit, so that's how I placed it. I colored the rope of the Tinsel Twine with a black marker since I didn't have the black tinsel. I embossed the spider with Watering Can and a sprinkle of Tree Branch Embossing Powders and then rubbed some Clear Rock Candy Distress Crackle on him. I added 2 orange rhinestones for eyes. I added dots to the corners of the letters with a Black Glaze Pen.
I embossed the base of the candlestick with Wendy Vecchi Watering Can embossing powder and the flames with Tree Branch embossing powder. I rubbed some dried up Snowcap Adirondack Acrylic Paint on the candles - (it was really thick being dried up!) - then I rubbed some Clear Rock Candy Distress Crackle paint over them and let them dry. I added 2 Remnant Rubs/Apothecary on the candlestick. Then I rubbed over the whole thing with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
I added the Monocle with Remnant Rubs on the front and white distress paint on the back and attached it to the trimmings with a Wire Pin. I layered my tag to a slightly larger tag cut out of Smokey Shadow card stock and called it done!
You'll find lots of tags linked up over at Tim's post - are you making one? You have until Oct 31st!
