I hope these photos gives some impression of the surface texture and different layers I tried to incorporate on this tag.
I also cast a bit of a spell on the witch myself!
I stamped her onto Shrink Plastic painted with Lake Wanaka, die-cut into an oval and then glazed with Glossy Accents so she has a little tiny 'doppel-ganger'. I added a sentiment from Paper Artsy Wings - now what does the 'Take Flight' refer to? It could be the witch's broom, the moths hovering over the tag or the swirling Autumn leaves - or Hannah as she starts out on her adult life, having graduated she's now doing a media training course. Here again I hope some of the textures can be seen more clearly, including the 'just melted' UTEE gold and the glittery black lettering on the Sentiment! I had lots of fun with Stickles too!
I used Tim Holtz pediment die-cuts at the top and bottom of my tag. I crackled the top one and then darkened it a little to try to create a woody look with some Wendy Vecchi Potting Soil Archival. The rose was Little Black Dress then Crackle Glaze and Eggplant. The petals are edged with White Fire and Stickles. The leaves around the edge are stuck to the bottom of the corrugated card tag and then sandwiched between this and a plain card tag on the underside. The beautifully coloured yarn to hang the tag by was a gift from my dear Magpie cousin, Dianne Marcoux. So thank you for stopping by Magpieheaven as Halloween approaches. I'm off to add Hannah's tag to the patchwork Owl Cushion we bought her for her main present! Happy Halloween when it comes!
