Felonious Friday with Outlaw Gal - Paint Dabber Resist

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

then OWSE

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

Craft Lounge.

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!!

Product List for Little Witchy Tag

I use it like a Bible of Techniques every day!!

So until next week

Have fun Creating!!
