I almost missed getting this into the latest A Vintage Journey challenge - With a Flourish. Not having any of Tim's flourish stamps or dies - I was going to go with one of his embossing folders I had that had vines on it - thinking that could stand as a flourish - then my eyes fell on the packaging from a recently opened pack of grunge board - and as Jennie mentioned on her challenge - Tim uses flourishes on many of his packaging boards - SO......... I made a tag using it. Even the color of it works for my Halloween design! (see the flourish?!)
I used several newly acquired items on my tag - the letters are Alpha Parts/Ransom, the owl, tree and bats are from the Sizzlets die Halloween Shadows
The fence is from the Halloween Shadows die as well - and the spooky gravestones are from the Alterations die - Graveyard. I cut it out of Stone Wash cardstock and swiped it through a mix of Black Soot, Bundled Sage and Picket Fence Distress Paints spritzed with water.
I popped the graveyard up on the tag using thick foam dots and added some orange rhinestones
I added one of my favorite little Idea-ology items - the Corked vial. I labeled it with a Remnant Rub/Apothecary - and filled it with the little black pieces that punched out of the fence die to use as 'bat wings'.
I ran my Black Soot Distress Paint along the edges of the tag - the packaging has a shine to it so the paint sort of beaded up as I dabbed it on - so I hit it with my heat tool and it dried nicely!
Since I used NBUS on this - I'm also linking this to Darnell's challenge:
