Halloween tags (part 1)
Getting in the spirit of Halloween with these two tags. I like the whimsical look of the Cauldron Tag. The frog and the potion bottle were buttons - I cut off the button part on the back so they would lay flat. The background was done with Distress Inks and then splashed with water. A pack of patterned paper (Recollections "Haunted Manor" paper pad) was used for the mini tag embellishment and the words.
The same patterned paper book provided the background paper in the Skeleton Tag as well as words cut from one of the papers. The skeleton key and skull are grungeboard pieces painted with Distress Paint-Brushed Pewter.
Patterned paper is a great way to create embellishments as well as borders for your cards/tags in addition to just being a background paper.
Another Halloween tag is in the works...with a Harry Potter movie as my inspiration...
