Once again delays, delays! Instead of apologizing again I'm just going to show off the lovely tags I made with my Scrap'n with Flair Halloween Kit! There are only 2 kits left so get them if you can!
My 1st tag was discovered in my kit and then pre-loved by Ana, as you saw at the beginning of my last post, so I decided to try something different with it. For those who know me, you should know I don't own any cutting or embossing machines, so I FAKED IT!! Well, I think I better then faked it with this beauty!
I took and hand bent the pattern of a spider's web into the tag, starting with the long lines going from one corner to the other end of the tag.
I then added the in between bends to connect them together, they were a bit trickier to do.
Next I took my Tim Holtz ink in Spiced Marmalade, and inked over the whole tag, making sure to go over my creased web design.
Then I took this lovely clock die-cut I received with my kit, and cut it to fit. Then added the clock arms, (not pictured) attaching them with a lovely pearl brad that was also included in the kit!
Then as you can see I embellished it a little farther adding a long piece of ribbon tooling ( also included in the kit ), creating a bow at the top and allowing it to flow over the rest of my tag sort of like a veil.
I think this is my favorite tag EVER!!
Ok, now on to my recycled item tag!
I started by adding a tiny bit of adhesive to the back of my house so it would temp. hold onto my tag, just enough so it wouldn't wiggle while I inked.
Then using a variety of inks I started inking!!! And then inking, and then inking some more, and here's what happened!
Then I took my recycled item, an empty candy wrapper, and had some fun!
Traced a circle shape with a sharp pen, ripped it out!
Removed the back paper layer.
And glued my candy wrapper moon and the house back onto the tag!
I then added a few embellishments found in the kit, a sign and a leaf.
And this is what I turned out like:
Oh what a hauntingly good time I had making these lovely tags!!!
Can't wait to show you the rest!!
