I have struggled with this little tag through all the upheaval at home these last few days, so was hoping for a challenge so I could enter it - just love the extra excitement of challenges - but I haven't found any so thought I may as well blog it instead.
I've used Tim's fantastic new autumn distress inks - seedless preserves is to die for - to make a Halloween-style tag.
All the elements are either Tim dies or stamps.
I used shrink plastic to make the leaves but simply stamped the leaves onto it using distress ink. They have come out perfectly.
The spider and witch are metal charms.

The owl is from Tim's Halloween set from last year.

I used some of the seam binding I bought when on holiday and coloured it with a the 3 new colours of distress ink, coupled with some more ribbon and fibres, it compliments the tag perfectly.
I had loads of fun with this, especially by using goggle eyes on the tree. Just need some time now to craft properly.
A great big thank you to Sioux for reminding me about Grungy Monday because I've just loaded their logo into my sidebar and entered this weeks challenge - Halloween - as my tag is just right for it.
