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.
