Spooky Tags!

Do you have a lot of Halloween stamps? Well I don't. *pout* So I pulled out a skull that I'd carved for a skull LTC swap and decided to not use. He's supposed to be laughing (as in "Dead Men Tell no Tales" Bwahahahahah) He's pretty spooky right?

The tiny little black edge you see is from a 1.75" circle punch that I adhered to the back. Why? Well... just cause I could and I like the look of the little black edge.

I stamped him on green to coordinate with the card I was working on. The green lent itself very well to creating shadows when I was painting.

I used a water brush and the china white from my watercolor pencils for the skull and an olive green and black for the shadows behind him. I pick up the color directly from the pencils onto the brush and mix on an acrylic stamping block (when needed). Keep in mind that the card stock is going to darken with the water and your finished color will be lighter when everything dries. If it's too light, go back and add more color.The tag on the card is cut out of DSP so it needed the black to make it stronger. I cut that one with the circle scissor plus so I could get a bigger border on it. The tag is tied onto the ribbon and loose otherwise. I think it's cool when stuff on the card moves, or flaps or something. You too?

I liked the way it turned out so much that I did six more!! (tags not cards) The one at the top is part of those six. They are on Stampin Up Kiwi Kiss (retired) card stock cause it's the stiffest stuff I have. Seriously nice thick paper... anyway you need that with the tag clearlits die by Sizzix. It was gifted to me and I really like it. It's clear in the center so you can see what you are going to cut out. So cool.

Oh! Did I tell you I got a cuttlebug from a friend for my birthday? *squeal* It's like the most amazing gift EVER! Another wonderful friend came and took me out to lunch - risking life and limb to do so since it was my first day I was allowed to go out without a mask. Yeah.. swine flu hit our house and it was NOT fun. Wash your hands boys and girls!

Now to figure out what to do with the six spooky tags that I made... Joey says I can give 'em to the teachers. I was thinking of making some banners with punch pal bats... these might work really well with that theme. What would you do with 'em?

Thanks for looking!
