31 Days of Halloween - Day 15

Hello my lovely blog friends, and than you for joining me for Day15 of the Smeared Ink 31 days of Halloween Blog Challenge.  If you've been working you way around the blogs in order, then you’ve arrived from Sarah’s blog.  If you're a billets, fear not- you can get your bearings from the blog roll over there on the right.

Today I'm showing you this tag -

I used stamps from Tim Holtz (bats) and Clarity (trees), a bit of Gorgeous Grunge from SU for the stars and a Lovecraft alphabet (excellent value at £1 for the set!).

The witch, flying past the masked - out moon, is a Alterations die from several years ago and is one I get a lot of use from - and in this case, I cut it out of craft foam and then I shrunk it to fit on the tag.  Yes, that's right, I used my heat gun to shrink it, just like shrink plastic.  The reduction in size isn't as dramatic as with shrink plastic but  it's enough to make witchy-poo just the right size!

So now, if you're a Horrifying Hopper, please move on to Lisa F’s blog - and I'll be back tomorrow!

Crafty Hugs,

Keren

Beautiful.
Love the coloring in the sky, the moon is so pretty, and the silhouette of the flying witch is great.
I'd love to have this for a bookmark of my own.
thanks for sharing.
