Spent some late night crafting doing my tag for October. I seem to craft so much better in the wee hours of the morning when it is dark outside and the house is quiet.
I love crafting this time of year. The colors of fall and especially Halloween are my all-time favorite. So of course I was looking forward to this month tag and the Distressed Glitter just made it all the more enjoyable. To add to the enjoyment I had just received my new Tim Holtz stencil "Shatter" in the mail and couldn't wait to try it out.
For my background, I started with just laying down some Distress Stain. I used Mustard Seed and applied various colors of ink until I achieved the look I liked.
Then simply added the Raven Blueprint stamp and some other back ground stamps.
Then used the new Shatter stencil. You can see the Shatter in the background of the Raven. I can safely say this is my new favorite stencil.
Honestly, after that I couldn't bring myself to cover it up so I didn't do a lot of embellishing on this tag. I really did try to add more but every time I put something on the tag I frowned because it covered up the shatter so in the end I just left it plain. LOL
I did the frame the same way Tim showed on his blog and inked the edges with a big of Black Soot.
So that is my take on this month tag. Hope you enjoyed it!
Thanks Tim for another great tag and technique!
Happy Paper Cutting!
