Happy Halloween

I had an idea brewing.... So after working on various ideas/elements for the past couple of days.... I am now ready to show you my latest tag!

I coloured the tag with peeled paint, crushed olive & spiced marmalade distress stains then did my distressed edges with black soot ink. Some "blood" runs & splats using stamps from Recollections - festive berries for those :-)

I've stamped bats & cauldron (Martha Stewart) in black archival

I've used TH Branch Tree die inked with walnut stain - the branches that hung off the edge have been used on the opposite edge, after sticking these down I added a crow from the same set of stamps. 

I stamped a spider web over the paper reinforcer 

The silver cage came off eBay & the orange bat was part off a set of Halloween trinkets from a trip to the Dollar Store last year. I used foam pads to raise the cage so that the bat would look trapped. 

A couple of cuttlebug pumpkins & skull (die-cuts) sit at the foot of the tree and a Spellbinders shrink plastic pumpkin (coloured with promarkers) sits in the tree branches


  1. This is just awesome!!! Beautifully spooky background! Love the idea of the caged bat too!

  2. Happy Spooky Halloween Sally! Great tag.
