Spooky and Creepy Tag by Jane


As we are heading towards Halloween, this week the theme on the Tando Creative blog is Spooky and Creepy and I decided to decorate one of the technique binder tags...

I started by using the small cobweb stencil by Tando Creative with crackle paste.  This was done at the top and the bottom of the tag and I filled in any spaces in between with more paste.  To make sure my webs all looked joined up I used my pokey tool to make some of the lines longer, scraping back the paste.

Once this had dried and cracked I used a shimmery spray ink in metallic silver to add colour.  I liked the way the colour soaked into the exposed grey board areas but left the crackle paste quite light and decided to leave the colour like that...

Using a spider from the Tando grab bag, I added some texture sand paste then once it was dry used purple paint and silver gilding wax.

I stamped out the poison bottle using a Bee Crafty stamp from my stash, this then had clear embossing powder added.  A bit of colour was added using Faber Castell pens then I re stamped the label to add another layer to the bottle.

The words were chosen from the Tim Holtz clippings set, and I picked 3 that I thought went with the spooky theme which I backed onto black card for extra stability...

Here are the links to the products used:

* Technique Binder and Tags
* Grab Bag of Spiders
