Forgotten Friday 37- it's THAT time of year again!
Hi folks, I hope that you are all well, and keeping busy on the crafting front. Have you got nagging feelings about getting your Christmas cards made yet, or have you got lots made already? Anyway, it's not Christmas that I'm talking about today, it's Halloween. I decided to use some neglected Halloween stamps for my Forgotten Friday project this week, they haven't been used for a year, so I reckon they qualify for this post!
It's also given me the chance to incorporate my new Limited Edition Distress Ink colours, as if I needed much of an excuse for that!
I chose to use a large tag, and stamped and embossed a spooky house from Chocolate Baroque, before masking it with Eclipse tape. I then coloured my tag with the Distress Inks, and spritzed the tag with Perfect Pearls. I then used a fabulous embossing powder called 'Halloween' from WOW, the colour is great, to emboss the word 'Spookylicious', at the top of the tag. I coloured the image with Polychromos pencils. All I have left to do is add some toning ribbon, and my tag will be finished.
I have taken a sideways view of the tag as well, because it was really hard to show the shimmer in the light this morning.
Anyway, why don't you have a rummage through your stash, and see what you have neglected. Leave a link in my comments over the next week, and I'll pop along to your blog to take a look. Thanks for stopping by, xx
