It's Saturday - well at least I think it is LOL! Don't know where the time is going lately. They say the older you get the faster time flies - ah well LOL!
I have a big favour to ask all my bloggie friends out there. I know how you all love to enter challenges. Do you think you could spread the word that there is a new Challenge blog around - Emerald Creek Dares. We have fortnightly challenges and you could win a $25 gift certificate to the Emerald Creek store - that's full of fabulous goodies. Thanks :-)
Anyways, I have another creation for you today using my Emerald Creek goodies. And continuing with our Halloween theme for our latest challenge, I decided to make a tag!
Oh my I had some fun pulling this tag together.
I started off with Range Texture Paste first ever play session with the Texture Paste and I love it! I used the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Batground Stencil and a Ranger Inkssentials Manilla tag #8.
After watching some of Tim's CHA videos I also added some Black Embossing powder whilst the paste was still wet. Then I set it aside to dry before heating it with my heat gun.
It had been sitting there for a few days - when I finally decided what to do with it earlier in the week. I got out some Ranger Distress Stains in Barn Door and Mustard Seed. Sprayed some water on the tag first (I also did a spare tag for the top bit and sentiment), squished the stains all over the tags and sprayed some more - I might have gone a bit overboard with the water - but hit it with my heat gun and it as fine:-)
I have to admit I love how the colour blended and was perfect for this theme. Another first using the stains that have been sat on my shelf for over a year!
For Funny Bones I heat embossed him with some black embossing powder and added a little Distress Marker in Frayed Burlap to his bones.
The Pete's Place Pumpkins were stamped onto water colour card stock and then coloured with more Distress Markers - Wild Honey and Frayed Burlap. However, as it's Halloween - I couldn't resist adding some scary faces to the pumpkins using another Distress Marker - Black Soot.
Can you see the shine on the embossed and texture paste bats :-)
I also added a strip of burlap that has been inked up with Ranger Adirondack Alcohol Ink in Sunset Orange.
Plenty of Halloween coloured ribbons and sentiment from my stash. The edges of the tag layers were also inked using Distress Ink pad Dusty Concord.
And a really big first for me - I am entering this tag in Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2015 - October! I am not sure if it qualifies - but I did use lots of Tim Holtz products and it is Halloween themed :-)
So, don't forget the theme for our latest challenge at Emerald Creek Dares is Halloween! You could win a fabulous $25 gift certificate to the store!
