Boo! My inspiration was drawn from Tim Holtz and his 12 Tags of 2014 October Challenge :)

I have a manila tag, plain then transformed! I stamped the black cat and spider and embossed them in black, following Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2014 October make. Then I cut a mask for each, once the tag cooled, I used Tim's Dot Fade stencil and applied texture through the stencil and over the embossed images.
Now let the paste dry.....while waiting I stamped the pumpkins with Jet Black Archival ink.
Then colored them with Distress Inks and water brush. Once dry I added Glossy Accents to the colored portion for a bit of dimension.
Once the paste was dry, I added some Distress Ink though stencils at the bottom, the diamonds and blocks then clear embossed them.
That done, I misted the whole tag with water. Then I used Dylusions Spray inks to play. I love the vibrant color! I sprayed and blotted until I was happy with the pattern.
Cut out the pumpkins and adhered them to the surface.
Thanks so much for your visit!
I encourage everyone to pop over and see all the wonderfulness!
