Halloween + Etc Tag

Hello! I am so happy to be sharing a Halloween project that has been published in the 

I started with a small Ecetera tag that I had painted with gesso +and applied molding paste through the woodgrain stencil. (Sorry no pics).

Once the paint/molding paste was completely dry I used Distress Paints in various brown tones: Ground Espresso,Vintage Photo, Black Soot & Walnut Stain.
I dry brushed over the surface of the tag until I was happy with it. To finished off the tag I added some script stamping with Archival Ink in Potting Soil

To create my focal point I first took a piece of watercolor paper and Distress Oxide Inks in Spiced Marmalade, Fossilized Amber & Vintage Photo.
I used the largest die from the Stitched Rectangle Thinlit die set to die cut out my background frame.

The image of the 4 boys holding the pumpkins is from the Found Relatives Occasions set from Tim Holtz Idea-logy. I gave it a very light sanding to add some distress, coloured the pumpkins with my Spiced Marmalade Distress Marker and added some Ground Espresso ink with my Tim Holtz Spritzer Tool.

It was time to start assembling my tag!

I stamped some pumpkins on the scraps of Distress Oxide watercolor paper I had leftover and layered these over the Twisted Edge die cut.  A page torn out of an old book that I inked up and stamped a spider on made a another layer. I added some Halloween Rub-Ons to my tag as well.

I found this pumpkin in my stash - its from the Tim Holtz Idea-ology Oddities & Charms set that made the perfect addition to my  focal image. All I did was use my Spiced Marmalade Distress Crayon to add some colour.
