Hi Sin City Fans!!!
Getting ready for Halloween???
I love to create Halloween themed things even though it's not really a huge event here in Australia!
It's just fun to make spooky things!!
I've been doing a lot of tag art lately and I have some more to share with you today!
Hope you like what I have done!
Sin City Stamp Set: Background Grunge Set
Strip of 4 Packaging Tags
Distress Inks & Sponges
Baby Wipe
Halloween Collage Elements - Sheet by Art Tea Life used for this creation
Embellishments: cobweb, fibres, sticky mesh, thread
General Supplies: scissors & glue
Let's get started with this fun & quirky tag set!

Use some nice bright colours for this creation - we are not creating spooky - we are creating fun and semi cute LOL!!! Cover the tag set with colour using your sponges.

Next grab a stencil and a fresh baby wipe and "remove" some of the ink through the stencil. Be careful you don't rub too hard and start to remove the layer of card - just aim for a subtle look. I chose this stencil as it matched the stamp from the Background Grunge Set perfectly!!

Next use a stamp of your choice from the Sin City Background Grunge Set and use a couple of different coloured ink to stamp randomly over all of the background.

Using one of the colours on your background edge the tag with a sponge including the "join" between each tag. I think edging with colour always gives a "finished" look.

Gather your collage elements and fussy cut - can be a little bit fiddly but worth the effort in the end!

Start arranging them on the background so you can work out where to adhere some "cobwebs" and sticky mesh for effect.

Tie some fibres through the hole of each tag to complete.

I hope you have enjoyed this little Halloween creation!

Make sure you keep checking back here at the blog for more DT inspiration - especially with Halloween coming up!!
