Riveting Parts

It's time for my favourite tag of the year...OCTOBER!  To get the low down on Tim's October Remix pop over tho his blog for the how too.  I followed all the same fun techniques.  

I decided to go with the Pumpkin Parts die instead of the Monster Thinlit.  I was tempted to use the Monster... But I was stuck with the thought of making a Riveting Pumpkin!  BTW... the monster, vampire and zombie thinlits are vanishing after this year.  So get them if you don't have them.

I love the rivets and black soot technique!


I used this metal spider charm heated it up and dropped Oil Rubbed Embossing Powder to get this bronze look.  Mine was silver.


To rub the paint off I used a dry baby wipe.  It was soft enough to rub off and totally dry... in my garbage.


Love the layering


Inky, crackly layered leaf and no I did not emboss it!


I love the crazing medium and the black soot crayon!   So crackled!  My tiny attacher was acting up and didn't want to play.  Luckily I got it all working after a jammed staple.


The Twist n' Style tool is perfect for making those tendrils out of copper.


The spider gets to twist too!


The frightful ephemera is of course awesome as a background!  I added a twisted edge along the bottom too.  I didn't think I would overly like that die cut.  I was wrong!


I really, really, really love the layering of ephemera and crackle.  I need to do this more!  Thanks for creeping by.  Check out the awesome techniques to create this months tag!
