Distressed Halloween Tag


Look out I am distressing again! 

I can't help it...it's my new passion and I think it's here to stay!  My darling husband and I were invited to our good friends home for some pool and darts Saturday.  We all made some yummy appy's, my husband made salmon skewers and I made pumpkin cheesecake.  I made a Thank You tag to go with the appy's we brought.  Not to mention some of the techniques I learned from crafty BFF!

I distressed the medium sized tag with my inks then stamped the Trick or Treat and Skeleton, both from SU.  After that was dry I ran it though my Tim Holtz Halloween embossing folder.  Then I spritzed gold all over the tag.  I only have the Perfect Pearls (without the fixative) that will smudge off if you don't set it.  So, if you have these use hairspray to set the shimmer.  Then it won't come off.

You can see the embossing here over the skeleton. And I banged out the metal brads with my new hammer!

I tied with MS ribbon and distressed a bat charm with my Ranger Alcohol Inks.

I punched my MS Bat Fence punch then attached with my Tiny Attacher.

I have been recently trying some new stuff.  I was getting a little tired there for a bit.  This tag is a perfect example of all the new things I have been experimenting with.  My Tiny Attacher, the Spritz bottles with the Pearl Ex, hairspray, Alcohol Inks on metal and my newest toy, the distressing hammer.

Journaling Tuck Spots and Pockets

It is official... I am addicted to Journaling.  This is an inspiration post... why?  I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas.  I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.  
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.

Inside there are pages of Memoranda paper and Idea-Ology from Scrap ShotzMarch Scrapbook Kit.

A mini book stuffed in a pocket too.

Nicole Wright Designs Fallen Blossomis used on the tag, stamped and watercolored with worn lipstick oxide ink.

I used pages from my 115 year old art journal to create another mini.  Stamping and watercoloring throughout each page with Garden Flower and my stamp set Fallen Blossom.

Tuck spots and pockets for stuffing notes.  

The March Kit with the new Memoranda paper is perfect on it's own.  But I still cut it up and collaged with it.

I fussy cut a found relative since I am still trying to get my hands on …

NEW Make Art Blendable Dye Inks

I am so excited to be apart of the new Wendy Vecchi "Make Art Blendable Dye Ink" release.  These inks have the robust colouring of the Archivals however you can blend them!  Even combining colours to make new ones.   Ohhh delicious! 

Watch the quick video below how I blended.

Ohhhh they create stunning colours.

I even dipped my ribbon for some colour!

The butterflies are an intense rainbow of colour.

Each colour is blended over the other creating hues of other colours.

I kept the tag simple so the inks could shine with these vibrant inks.

Make Art Blending Dye Inks are a must!  Thanks for taking a look.

Watercoloring with Butterflies & Oxides

The Eileen Hull Inspiration Team has been sharing tutorials all month long.  I do have a video tutorial for this card but it won't be read for awhile.  Hey, it happens.  I at least have a couple of photo's until the whole video is posted on Creative Scrapbooker Magazines website.


Loving the new Oxide inks especially as we approach those soft easter pallets.

A little stamping.

I know it's not a box or cool journal.  One of my favourite dies is the Birds & Butterflies thinlit.  Yep, there are pretty little dies perfect for card making too.



I love the intricate butterfly to layer over.

A simple card and no it's not even a journal.

I will share the video when it's all done and posted.  I will even embed it in the post too.
Onto next month...
