Spooky Tag

Happy almost Halloween I have 1 more spooky post because I couldn't let Halloween pass without posting one more on my Blog.  I have been really busy and I'm over half way through Creative Chemistry 102.  I was dying to try some of the new techniques I've learned so here's a bunch!!!! I made this tag into a card as a Thank You!  I'm a lucky girl as this stamp set was a gift.  Don't we all love gifting others!  I know I have so much fun.  So when this stamp was given to me, why is it so hard to accept?  Surely I have done nothing worthy enough to accept such a lovely gesture.  With my cheeks burning red (I'm sure) I accepted with a sheepish smile.  Feeling truly blessed and lucky someone wanted to be so kind:)  Despite what everyone one says...I must be a nice person;p

I popped the cone portion of the witches hat off so I could wrap it in matching paper.  Then I glued it back into place.  The 31 is from the TH Gothic Boo die.  I attached the tinsel and used my heat gun to age the tinsel. I used up some old orange ribbon and attached this skull from a $1 bracelet.  TH Skull n' Cross is some perfect hardware I glued in place by folding the brim.  Another skull and some glittery Halloween accents glued on top. I made a banner with grungepaper and HAPPY HALLOWEEN stamped.  I used some walnut stain ink to distress the edges.  The attach with hot glue.  A little glitter pumpkin and Spanish moss complete the creepy …
