Last night the Giggler's celebrated Mary Ann's birthday. Of course when you have a birthday in October chances are you love Halloween (& she does) plus she loves tags so I made this spooky guy & he lights.
The background was done using Hickory Smoke, Stormy Sky, Wilted Violet & Peeled Paint Distress Ink on a #10 tag then spritzed with water. The skull (on white CS), spider web, birthday sentiment & pumpkins were stamped in black Archival ink on another manila tag. The pumpkins were colored with a detailer water brush using Dried Marigold, Carved Pumpkin & Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink then fussy cut & layered. The skull was lightly inked with Hickory Smoke & fussy cut. "Wicked" was done by coloring white embossing paste with a few drops from a Twisted Citron re-inker & applied over the stencil. The words at the bottom are remnant rubs & the bats at the top are die cuts. I also spattered black ink over everything before adding the spider which was attached with a piece of thread.
TIP: My friend, Shannon suggested replacing one of the layers of foam tape with Velcro so the battery could be changed. I think that's a great idea & next time I'll give that a try.
