Hey there everyone .. Guess what we had a Winner in my Last Week's Impromptu Challange!! woohooo !! Kathy Eddy created a Beautiful Piece. You can find it on her blog here
Kathy send your Full Name and Address to me please. Send it to
okay now onto our regular scheduled Program.
This Week I worked on a little Halloween Tag
using a Cool Tim Holtz Technique..
and some new Stamps Sets I got from none other
By the way has anyone started doing any Halloween Projects?
I'm going to start doing some cards for my Sisters kids
no there not little anymore..
they have babies now themselves
Real Little Ones
and my Neiece is pregnant again.
The sad thing is I'm stuck here in Indianapolis and never get to see them but
I sure do like snagging pictures of the babies off of Facebook and Scrapping them
well anywho here is a Fun Tag I created for
All Hollows Eve ( I love to call it that!) LOL
(product list on the bottom of this post)
To Create this Tag
I put White Cap Paint Dabber all over My Flourish Stamp
and Stamped it
Then I took two Distress Inks
Peeled Paint and Spiced Marmalade
and blended the two into the tag
Then I took a Paper Towel and spritzed it with a Mini Mister
I got it pretty wet but not saturated
Then I wiped the color off the Flourish areas
The Paint dabber acts as a resist..
I edged the Tag with Forest Moss Distress Ink
it goes so good with
Peeled Paint as a shadow
and Voila one Background!!
Pretty Cool huh
You can find more Tim Holtz Techniques Here
Once my background was done I got to stamping on it..
I used my Bird Stamp once again from Mr. Tim Holtz
Love that Man!!
Then I used my new Halloween Set from
I like Craft Lounge's Stamps
They are deeply etched and come in a variety of some humorous stamps.
Some day I'll show you my Beach one.
It's a gal not too skinny with graying hair like me
she has some cool saying like
"Do I look Fat in this"
meaning her swimsuit..
Now don't we all say that expecting to hear "No you don't" and if we don't hear that
boy do we start to pout!!
okay I'm off the beaten track now.
Back to this piece
Using this Halloween Stamp set
I stamped the Black Cat
then the Graveyard twice
once offset to the right so it went off the edge.
Then I cut out my Focal Point Images
One I found on the Internet
the house and a tiny little ghost in the background
I cut this into a circle
I had the Gal Image from when I used to buy tubes because I was
a Paint Shop Pro Addict making Signature Tags..
The Artist that created this gal is Keith Garvey
Boy is this man talented creating Beautiful Woman
Some day I'll show off some of my Siggy tags I use to make.
I got heavy into Animation and I taught Paint Shop Pro for a bit..
but seems to be in another life time
So Once I finished cutting out the gal I printed off I positioned her to
give the illusion that she was floating in the air..
good little cute Witch!! LOL
I added some Fibers and my Tag was done
Quick and Easy!!
