October 7~ 31 Days of Halloween Wicked Blogger Challenge Day 7~12 Tags of 2014

Happy Tuesday!

A sweetly spooky tag today this 7th day of October! 7th project in 7 days for the Smeared and Smudged 31 Days of Halloween fun! If you need the details, pop over to Terra's blog HERE

Should you need a refresher for the Blog Hop, it is right there under Mr. Neon Skele on the right sidebar. Thanks so much for all the enthusiasm in your comments, sooo appreciated<3

I know you all are super busy and so let's just Hop to it! Off we go....

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

Please click each image for a larger version:)

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.

The skele kitty is another stencil from the Danse Macabre stencil set by Beatrice Coron. I just wanted the kitty portion this time around, so I only applied paste in that area.

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!
