Halloween tag

I made this tag at a class I taught on Saturday. I like making tags because you can set them aside and use them on layouts or cards or just start a tag collection. That would make a great Your Story book: a book of tags. It could serve as inspiration at a later date or to just marvel at the lovely tags you have made. hmmmm

Anyway, this is a Tim Holtz tag that I sprayed with water and Perfect Pearls. I then crumbled the tag up into a little ball and smoothed it out afterwards. Then I took the distressing ink pads Red Barn and Wild Honey and rubbed them over the tag. I used lighter colors so the black would really stand out. After that I used an Inkadinkado leaf flourish stamp with Colorbox black ink and stamped the side so a little of the image went off the edge. The Trick or Treat stamp is a friend of mine and she doesn't keep them in the package-so Idk who makes that stamp. Then I took some Pearl X and dipped my finger in and smeared it along the edges. After it dried I placed the ribbon (Fancy Pants) through the top and the epoxy stickers in the left lower corner. The striped, Oct and 31 stickers are by Making Memories.
