It's October Taggy Giveaway Time...

Goodly Morning Stampers... yes, it is that time already... another tag giveaway from yours truly... this month being as it is Spooky Season, I have made a Hallowe'en themed tag using the brand new background and flourish stamps, which are on special offer HERE with 25% off... bargain!


I have also used the new Seasonal Distress Inks... I am in lurve with Seedless Preserves, which is amazing because I am not normally a purple kinda gal, but this colour.. imagine Aged Mahogany mixed with Dusty Concord... lushness indeedily! I started by blending Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, Seedless Preserves and Aged Mahogany DI's onto a Ranger Size 8 tag. Next I "inked up" the mini polka dots stamp with water... because the ink on the tag is still wet and very intense, you can get a really good bleachy look with most stamps. The ickle dots look like little specs of ectoplasm... well, in my head they do lol.


I used the Grid background... inking it randomly with Monarch Orange Archival Ink... then stamping just onto the top half of the tag. Next I inked part of the large Swirls with Plum Archival and stamped this onto the bottom of the tag. The Spiders Web, Skelington and Bats are from the Tim Holtz Hallowe'en sheets and are stamped in Coffee and Jet Black Archival. I added a gorgeous batty-bat charm from the new Hallowe'en Adornments set... I punched a hole in his ear using Tim's Drill Punch... and then attached it to some inked Seam Binding.


Well, that's all for me for now... except I need to let you know how to join in with the giveaway... that would help lol All you need to do is leave me a comment here and your name will be entered into the draw and one name will be chosen at random and announced on November 3rd. Also.. if you hop across to my own blog... leave a comment on today's post, you will be entered into the draw twice! Thanks for looking... TTFN

Why is Halloween so exciting for the crafty ones amongst us? I really love this tag and I really WANT it. Seedless preserves is indeed the most lush colour of the whole DI pallette.
