Halloween Tag!!

I created this Halloween Tag for the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog hop this week. It is the first blog hop I have participated in and it was so much fun!! If you haven't seen it, there is still time to check it out and participate, it is open until September 15th!!


I created my collage tag from my stash hoard...The orange tag is made from a double sided paper by Deja Views. The black and white graphic paper is by DCWV. Of course all the edges were distressed using Tim Holtz distress inks in Brushed Corduroy and Black Soot. Background of the cage is the backside of the Deja View paper, distressed with Tim Holtz Tea Dye. Edgar and the Crows are collaged along with the top floral paper and the body, mind & soul sentiment. The bird cage is of course the Tim Holtz Alterations die from Sizzix. Happy Halloween embellishment was stained with Adirondack butterscotch alcohol ink. The chain, lock and key charms are from the Explorer line by Traditions. They were attached through the eyelet and then glued down with glossy accents. Edgar's eyes are creepy green glass beads to give him his hypnotising glare. I added a small circle at the top in black used my crop-a -dile and inserted some sheer black ribbon for the tie...Hope you Enjoy!!
