Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2014 - August
I decided to do a Halloween take on this month's tag. When I pile all my favorite stamping stuff on my workspace (as recommended in this month's tag instructions), of course it is all my spooky stuff. I really love the cat stamp on this one - I whitened his eyes up with a gel pen.
The 'rust' technique that I used with the honeycomb stencil is really cool. It is most apparent on the upper left hand side of the tag. And it was fun to fire up my sewing machine and sew the film strip onto the tag. The skeleton is stamped and then die cut with a framelit die. Gives it a nice precise look and saves me from having to 'fussy cut'. Used some black eyelash yarn for the tassel and hand sewed the pen nib to the top of the card.
Getting excited about October 31st yet?
