Mixed Media Tag Halloween A Walk On the Dark Side

Meihsia Liu Simply Paper Crafts Mixed Media Halloween Dark Tag Tim Holtz Simon Says Stamp
Hey, my lovely crafty friends! I hope you all enjoyed the beautiful fall weather during the weekend, and welcome back for the new challenge this week. For the theme this week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, we'd love to see you create something "a WALK on the Dark Side".

I created a mixed media tag for Halloween decor with Distress Crackle Paint on the background and used Idea-Ology Halloween Ephemera Pack to embellish the tag.

I started this project with applying crackle paint on the background of this size 8 tag. After the crackle paint was dry, I dabbed the red Distress Paint around the edge of the tag, then drew the outline of tag using Faber-Castell Big Brush Pen.

The Halloween paper embellishments were covered with the crackle paint, layered and pasted on the tag using Tombow Mono Glue and Adhesive Tabs.

I added a metal clip that's covered with crackle paint and a tiny bottle to embellish the tag. Some sentiments were attached with stickers and metal word band. 

I really hope this mixed media tag inspired you to create and join us this week! Happy crafting!

I didn't know Tim Holtz even had this Halloween pack out until I saw your mother used to have the same witch hanging in our house every Halloween when we were little. I have to get this to make a card for her. Thanks for the share.

Very cool piece! I love how you focused on the reds and blacks with little pops of other colors here and there. It reminded of an awesome comic book.
