Happy Halloween.....aren't I pretty ;)
Yes that is me ;)
Ok, be prepared for a long, picture heavy post.
I have finally finished the Tim Holtz challenge tag for October.
I was so excited to do this tag, as I love everything to do with Halloween.
I had even made a sketch for this tag on October 1st. But if you know me, I am such a procrastinator, to the extent that I forget to do something.
That is what happened with October's Tag.
Do you like the zombie...that was an after thought, lol.
Here is the actual tag.
I was pretty excited as Tim's focus this month was using his Distress Glitter.
When I was on my last creative shopping trip, I made sure I picked up some black distress glitter, with this project in mind :)
I painted the chipboard, added glossy accent to adhere the Glitter.
It wasn't until I completed all this, that I realized I had Distress embossing powder....NOT distress glitter. I was pretty upset...but I think I made it work anyway.
The first tree and fence, I forgot to ink the chipboard with distress ink, before adding the glitter...or should I say embossing powder, as I bought the wrong stuff ;(
The second set I added the black distress ink before adding the embossing powder.
I like the second set more.
I used the Distress paint to colour the background of the tag.
I am still not getting the correct technique as Tim Holtz does...but I'm still figuring it out.
I do like how this did turn out though ;)
I wanted to make a moon for this tag.
So what I did was ink up some white paper with a distress ink that I thought would work.
Then I punched out a circle (which I discarded), then punched another circle, but only punched part of the paper, to get this half moon shape.
I wanted to use this piece of ribbon for the tag, as it has bats on it, but it was too bright. So I used a dark brown distress stain to darken the ribbon.
As I mentioned above, I purchased a distress embossing powder instead of the distress glitter.
Even though I did like look of the embossing powder, I wanted the glitter. So I added some black glitter glue onto the embossing powder to the fence.
I also stamped script writing to the background.
Those tiny bats were punched and then cut out of the Martha Stewart's fence punch.
But what kind of a zombie lover would I be not to add one to the October's tag, lol.
So what do you think...tag with or without the zombie?
It is a tiger if you can't tell.
It was a very intricate design.
Here is Wayne's carved pumpkin.
It is a zombie hand coming out of the ground. The ground didn't show up in the photo that well.
I hope you all had a safe, warm and wonderful Halloween.
If you were lucky to get a bit creative as well ;)
