Tag Friday at A Vintage Journey

Hello Friends!

When there are five Fridays in a month we share tags over at A Vintage Journey.

At this time of year when most people's thoughts turn to beautiful autumnal colours - mine turn to Halloween!  I was inspired by a beautiful card by Richele
To create the tag I used a Tim Holtz Etcetera tag (the smallest size - 10" x 5.1/2").  The background was created with Distress Oxide in Spiced Marmalade, Wilted Violet and Iced Spruce.  I used a separate piece of card, placed the inks on my craft mat, spritzed with water and dragged the card through, drying before applying another colour.
I die cut the spider web by Tim Holtz from the new Halloween range and glued this to the top of the tag.  The word 'wicked' was cut from a Tim Holtz orange deco Sheet and mounted, slightly offset onto black cardstock.  The word 'witch' is from Tim's chit chat stickers.  The stars were cut out using the Tim Holtz Witchcraft die.  Once cut, I put them back in, randomly, mixing the colours.

The spider at the top is from Tim's Ideaology range, he is attached by some thin wire, which gives him some movement.

I do love this fabulous witch with her cat, this is from Tim's new Halloween release (Witchcraft), as are the gravestones, gate and fencing (Village Graveyard).  The fence and gate are mounted with a slight bow to give some dimension and I added Tim's Twisted Thorn Edge to the base to give the look of tree roots.

I hope you have the time to go and visit my Teamies over at A Vintage Journey, they have some fabulous, inspiring tags to share with you!

Thanks so much for your visit, I really appreciate it!

Hugs, Anne xx
