Happy Halloween

Edited on 10/30/2018I’m thrilled that this tag was picked as Top 3 by The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge.
Thanks you, DTs, you made my day.

Hello Artsy Friends,

I’m super excited and honored to be the Featured Guest Designer for Stamps and Stencils’ October Challenge - Spooky Fun with an Autumnal twist. I'd like to thank Stamps and Stencils DTs for choosing my tag as the Winner and inviting me as Guest Designer.

I must confess that I’m not really into the spooky things, especially that I don’t have little children around me for some years. Yet I’ve decided to challenge myself to create an Autumnal tag with some spooky elements. It’s fun to explore something out of my comfort zone.

For details of how I made my tag, please check out my Guest Designer Post.

Hope my non-traditional Halloween tag is eye-pleasing and inspirational to you. Please do check out the Challenge Blog for more inspirations from the talents DTs and join us for the fun.

If you like my tag, please do let me know. Thanks for stopping by and wish you a great day.

    I have very few MEN-themed stamps. Besides I wanted to challenge myself to create a masculine tag with warm and pretty color scheme to echo the coming Autumn. The following is how I made my tag.

    2.Use a piece of baby wipe to spread the colors.

    3. Apply Distress Oxide Inks over Leave Stencil (Tim Holtz) on tag.

    4. Stamp Wherever You Go Collage stamp (produced by Paperbag Studios yet discontinued) with Black Archival Ink on tag.

    7. Attached leaves on tag and finalize the tag.
