31 Days of Halloween - Day 8

Hello folks, and it’s day 8 of the Smeared and Smudged 31 days of Halloween Blog Hop.  All you have to do to take part is to hop through each of the Wicked Blogs that are participating and leave a comment on each project.  All Horrifying Hoppers will receive a Survival Button at the end of the month to proudly post on their blog.

If you’re following the blog hop in order, you’ve arrived here from Teresa’s blog.    If you’ve arrived from elsewhere and you’d like to work your way through all the participating blogs, the blog roll is in the sidebar – just start at the beginning or wherever suits you best.

  A straightforward tag today, coloured in shades of orange, covered with spiderweb net and with some die-cuts from Sizzix Alterations range cut in black card and rubbed with black metallic wax.  
I cut the bottom of the tag so that it followed the lower edge of the "Boo".  


Can you see the skull peeping out from behind the "B"?  It's a stamp from a set by De Stempelwinkel, stamped on tissue and painted on the reverse with acrylic paint then cut out and glued on - in this case, I used my Xyron sticker maker as the tissue is quite delicate.  I could have stamped and masked it...but this was easier!








Hope you are enjoying the hop.  Don't forget that Scavenger Items will be hidden randomly on the Wicked Blogs, and are not guaranteed to be available every day. You will have to visit blogs to find them. If you find one, you will email and let us know exactly where it was and your name will go into that scavenger item's drawing. Each person who finds the "hidden" picture will get one entry. The drawing for each scavenger prize will be the day after it was posted and winners will be chosen by random number based on who emailed. you for visiting.  Now, if you’re working your way through the roll, it’s on to Renee.  Bye now!

Wow what a great tag, I love the skelly peeking out from the lettering, and the great effect of the material on the background.

Very cool tag! I just noticed the skull right before reading that he was there. What a surprise. Brilliant! Love that webbing, too. xxD

Very cool tag and perfect use of the diecuts!

DogsMom said...

Great idea to cut the bottom to match BOO and give it a ragged looking edge.

Thanks for the great tips on working with the stamped tissue paper.
