Tim Holtz October Tag of the Month
I have been quite the slacker when it comes to creating the Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2014. I decided I just had to create this tag for Halloween. I did not have the exact materials that Tim used for his tag, but I had enough materials that were close.
I started off embossing the tag with an old Halloween folder and then inking with various spray inks. I used black soot distress ink to highlight the spider web and the edges. I found an orange pumpkin on a vintage postcard. I used dimensional liquid embossing to create the face. Once it was dry, I used a black soot distress marker to color the face.
For the BOO sentiment, I used Tim Holtz alphabet stickers on wood rectangles that I found at an antique store. I was fresh out of spiders, so I inked up an embossed grunge board skull. I added three charms from our store to the door knocker. The bat and pumpkin were patinaed by my daughter, Catherine. The charms can be found at Dry Gulch Beads. I used twine at the top.
