Trick or Treat - Halloween tag

Happy Monday - did you have a good weekend? I kept mine quite lazy, trying to catch up from busy weeks working full time now.

So here is a Halloween tag from me today using PanPastels and DIs on a ribbed kraft tag.

All the embellishments are downloads and cut out (I must get some more stamps!!!) The skeleton is from the Graphic fairy, the bats are free clipart and the Trick or Treat sentiment is from Inktegrity.

The masks were layered using embossing ink and PanPastels.The Happy Halloween was pastelled, sprayed with sealer then DI blended round the edges.

The Trick or Treat sentiment was blended with dried marigold DI then PPs blended on the edges while the ink was still wet. Quite mellow colours don't you think?

Please link any Halloween cards or projects you make to my Halloween linky so that I can come visit and see what you are making and leave you some love. I will draw someone at the end to receive one of my Halloween tags as a give-away. It could be this one!!!

Have a great day.

luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox
