A Spooky Little Tag!

I just fancied a little fun the other evening & made this tag.
 I stamped the Tim Holtz words onto a tag shape & then
I coloured the background with Spiced Marmalade & Rusty Hinge distress inks.
Once dry I embossed it with the Tim Holtz Woodgrain Texture Fade folder.
I over inked the raised edges using Brushed Corduroy & matted the tag onto black.
I drew round my grungeboard skull onto white card & coloured Black Soot.
I stitched a black button with orange thread & glued it onto the skull & added a wobbly eye.
I stamped the Stampotique Kitty on white card & coloured him (I always think of it as a he)
using Barn Door & Rusty Hinge. I glued on orange pompom trim (Fancy Pants)
The two white skulls are stamped (Inkadinkado Rock Star Set) onto white card
& cut very close to make them freaky & ghoulish!!
The spotty ribbon was free with my Ruby Gorjuss mug by Santoro, London.

It took a lot of 'steps' but they were all worth it! Beautiful tag Paula!

So much work which culminated in a gorgeous tag Paula. I love all the details and I'm very fond of that rather gorgeous cat in the corner. So: great stamping, fab colours, love the little orange pompoms at the bottom and the cat of course. . . . . . . . I'm even getting in to skulls now and I'm so not a Halloween fan! Wonderful.
