Spooky Tag

Here's your second inspiration tag.  This time getting in early for Halloween!  This has been created using Gathered Twigs and Ripe Persimmon distress inks.  Firstly applying a mix of both over your tag using Cut n Dry Foam.  Splash some water droplets over your tag then blot dry.  Then use some bubble wrap - ink it up with the gathered twigs and stamp randomly on your tag.  The tree is an Elusive Images/Chocolate Baroque stamp in Jet Black Archival Ink.  I've added some white gel pen highlights to bring it to life.

I've hand drawn (yes hand- drawn - don't be scared - give it a go!!).. the spiders web with a letraset fine-liner.  Simplist ever to do cobwebs - just straight lines from one point radiating outwards, then do scallops in between them.  And Mr spider is easy to draw too - just draw and colour in an oval - add little lines for his legs and then some white gel pen eyes - done!

The lettering is hand-drawn too - just go slowly - have a practice before hand if you're not sure!.. or you can always use some alphabet stamps if you prefer.

the final touch is our little witch charm.. she's fixed on with a brad - She is one of a selection of halloween charms now in stock!

Have fun!
