Beware.....Tim Tag Remix October

Hello and Happy Halloween!
It is time for another Technique Remix Tag.
This month Tim used the patchwork collage & Sizzix Monster.
Click on the photo to see Tim's finished tag for inspiration.

I didn't own the Monster die from Sizzix last year and guess what! I still don't.
That's ok - improvising is fun & part of the creative process.

Here is my finished tag - 

I started by collaging some scraps I had of Halloween paper in my stash.
It felt really good using these up so I decided that when I finish a project I will glue down the scraps of paper down on a tag when I'm done. These will be perfect for card backgrounds.
Once my pieces were adhered down I added some crazing medium and let this dry completely before moving on to the next step.

To finish the background I added some Black Soot Distress Crayon & splatters.

I added in a skull that I had cut out of some scrap to the small charm with some crackle adhesive. When this was dry I rubbed some Black Soot Distress Crayon over the cracks to grunge it up.

I dyed some ribbon with Carved Pumpkin Distress Stain and added some Walnut Stain Distress Ink.

Instead of the Monster - I decided to use the Apothecary Bottle die from Sizzix.
I used the Metallic Kraft-Core Distress paper from Ranger and a couple embossing folders.
I added some Black Soot Distress Paint over the embossing and some Black Soot Distress Crayon around the edges to grunge it up.

With all my pieces done it was time to assemble my tag.
