Sin City Stamps and Gelli Plates Backgrounds

Hello everyone, and welcome back for more Halloween fun!  I just love October because I love making anything related to Halloween.  I've always been a fan of spooky movies, and this genre is just my thing!  

Today's project is a very colorful and a bit creepy card that I made using my Gelli Arts printing plate for a background, and a few of my favorite Sin City Stamps rubber sets.
While playing around with my gelli plate, I also made this same or similar background on a different color card stock to see what the difference would be.  Then I couldn't help myself.  I had to turn it into a  tag, or a card to slip into a pocket, or even used as a focal point on a card.  

I have prepared a bit of a tutorial for you using Snapguide.  All you have to do is click START THE GUIDE for complete instructions.
