I also didn't have the new Halloween ephemera so I used snippets from his new materialize 8x8 paper-pack & some from an old paper pack my friend, Lisa had in her stash. I found a page with words so I used "costume". I love how the smudged crayons look over the the crazing medium. I think I went a little crazy with the tiny attacher but the look is so cool. I distressed the edges then blended them with black soot ink, Instead of spattering the tag, I sprayed it with hickory smoke spray stain to finish the 1st part of the tag.
In place of the monster die, I decided to make a spooky mask by cuting 2 leaves from Tim's Big Z Tattered Leaves Die. I should have used foil tape sheets over a piece of cardstock but goofed up & cut them from a mirrored sheet. The mirrored sheet is thicker so when I tried to punch a 1/2" hole for the eyes, I only got an impression. I finished cutting them out using scissors & decided to slant the eyes. Then I embossed them using the diamond plate texture fade & did the faux metal look with black soot paint. I shaped it a little by bending them & added feathers I had in my stash. I only had 1 green eye so I put the wicked adornment spider on a wire & place it in the other eye. I added hex fasteners on each side then adhered it to my tag using black 3d foam squares. I'm pretty proud of my "masked monster"!
To finish it off I added "curiosities" from Tim's incantation word bands with wire & stapled it on. The film strip ribbon was stapled on showing a hand. The final touch was black string at the top.
Since there are so many stapes I decided to put a back on using paper from the materialize paper pack. It wasn't long enough so I added a strip of materialize design tape at the bottom.
I have to say this tag is one of my favorites!! Hmmm, I think I've said that before...LOL! TFL!
