Simon Says Stamp and Show Something With Wings
I was so happy to see Grungy Monday reappear, and lucky for me, I was able to create something that also works for the Simon Says challenge this week.
I'm not much of a Halloween person, but I know plenty of people who are, so this tag will be headin' out sometime soon.
The base is a black Ranger tag which was embossed with Cuttlebug's spiderweb folder. Embossing ink was swiped over the raised parts and then brushed with copper and grape Perfect Pearls. The top of the tag (where there was no embossing, is covered with some of Tim's Halloween tissue tape.
The bird is from Tim's Raven/Scaredy Cat die. It was cut from grungeboard, inked with black embossing ink and covered with black embossing powder. Then it got a coat of rock candy crackle paint. When I went to finish drying it with my heat tool it did some crazy bubbling, but I'm going to say it was deliberate because I like the texture. (But it really was a happy accident).
Behind the bird are both sizes of the mini rosette die. They were cut from some Cosmo Cricket Halloween paper that I've had for about two years. The Happy Halloween ticket is hanging from a bit of ribbon behind the raven.
OK, I think I'm done with spiders and black cats and ravens and witches. Bring on Santa!
