Hello everyone, this is Astrid here with a little Halloween project, - a tag in two parts:
Now I love Halloween and Halloween projects, but for some reason I don't own many Halloween stamps, so this was a bit of a challenge for me, but hey ho, nothing like being creative with what you have....
These are the stamps and products I used.
Katie Fox Leaves
Tim Holtz Embossing Folder Eiffeltower and French script
Distress Paints: Antique Linen, Weathered Wood, Bundled Sage
Distress Ink: Gathered Twigs, Vintage Linen and Bundled Sage, Rusty Hinge, Wild Honey, Aged Mahogany
Archival Ink: Potting Soil
From my stash
Prima Mixed Media tag
Graphic 45 Happy Haunting collection
A few embellishments and some seam binding
Hole punch and eyelets
I started by cutting a Prima Mixed media tag from my stash into two parts and then ran the top part through the Tim Holtz script embossing folder with one of the diffusers to give me an un-embossed part in the middle. I then coloured it with my three chosen colours of Distress paints by adding them to my craft sheet and then swiping the tag through it until I was happy with the result. I then added some Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and Archival Ink in Potting Soil around the edges.
For the bottom part of the tag I stamped a sentiment from the new Grungy Greetings set in Potting Soil Archival
A bit more colour was added by stamping two leaves from the new Katie Fox set in Potting Soil and colouring with Distress Inks. A ribbon and little button finished it all off.
Thank you for visiting and see you next time!
