12 tags of 2013 - October

Hello again,

What a week, this nasty cold/flu bug I have is brutal. It's really encroaching on my creativity ( or maybe it's the cold medication hahaha) Tim's October tag is sure to inspire though, I was a glittering fool. Let's take a look...

Distress paint marbling background with some Distress ink over top to brighten the colors. The weathered clock was glittered with pumice stone and a bit of antique linen. The halloween die set from Sizzix is fab. I love every single one in the package. That's where the pumpkin and the crows came from.

More marbling on the tag, a great stamp from Stampendous was layed on top with black archival ink. The spider web was glittered and adhered with glossy accents, topped off with a murder of crows.

This one was fun too, I cut the tombstone, stained it with black soot then embossed with the cement embossing powder. I cut out the spooky cat ( before inking) so I could add him back in there as an inlay after I glitzed him up. The vine die cut was added to the top. The word (Graphic 45 steampunk spells set) was stamped on clear plastic and stuck on with glossy accents.

I can't decide on a favorite. Which one do you like the best?
