I spotted this crow in the park...he looked very spooky to me ;0)
Until my granddaughter Daisy was born I really did nothing for Halloween as celebrating it was unheard of in my own childrens' days. However I now find it great fun and I enter into the spirit by making up a little parcel of goodies for all my babies, big and small. Daisy still does not like sweets or chocolate (yes seriously) so I buy her a token present but my big babies and their partners get a little parcel of Halloween sweet goodies.
I will share what I buy in my 2nd DT post which comes up on 11 October. For these little token gifts I always make Halloween tags so my inspiration pieces will be 2 of the tags I have made. Today's tag started off like this.
I chose 4 autumnal coloured distress inks and added some water.
I dragged my card through the inks, drying between layers.
Next I used my new TH stencil and added gold embossing paste through it,
I loved the result.
The it was time to put everything together...and this is what I came up with...
I would like to enter my spooky tag into the following challenges;
Simon Says Stamp Monday powder powder I used embossing powder on my sentiment.
Simon Says Wednesday anything goes
Deep Ocean anything goes
Artistic Inspirations anything goes
That's Crafty 1/3 all of a sparkle
Rubber Dance 1/3 October mood board My base distress inks were orange, brown and yellow
I would also like to link up with my great friend Brenda's Halloween giveaway here.
Back soon, I'm going to be in the festive spirit...watch this space ;-)
Bye for now,
