I do!!

It seems that I do 'do' Halloween after all! Even though I don't really like spooky goings on and steer away from the gory items on sale I must say I have enjoyed crafting Halloween style!

I have made a tag which I started by using Transparent gel medium through a diamond stencil.
 I used Black Soot Distress ink all over the tag, then used Tim's mini Halloween set to stamp the bats, the skellie and the greeting using Archival black.
I had some plastic spiders that have been lurking around for a while so after adding a little orange paint and part of a thinlets die I stuck three of them to the side of the skellie. 
I added more ink around the edges of the tag.

I would like to enter this in 

and

Thanks for looking, Chris

This is fabulous. I am in awe that you are able to get such awesome stamping over different heights. Shows what a super stamper you are. Loved the skeleton in particular.

Well I am glad you do do Halloween because this tag is a smashing success. The transparent paste with the stencil is genius, it created an ethereal feel and vibe. Those spider are wicked. Awesome sauce tag! Hugz. ~Niki

Yeah, Chris! this first step is admitting you have a problem! But 'doing" Halloween does not seem to be a problem at all for you! I love your spooky tag! Forgive my absence. I have been on a bit of a catch up with crafting binge lately, and then life, too, gets in the way of me visiting my bloggy friends! So happy to be here for a few minutes this morning, although I won't be "catching up" judging from all the thumbnails I've seen of yours when I am linking up. You have been a BUsY girl! Hugs!

I absolutely love this Chris, the background is brilliant and I just love how the skeleton looks like he is afraid of those huge spiders! Great fun.

Thanks so much for joining in our 'Make it Spooky' challenge at A Vintage Journey. Hugs, Anne x
