hey bloggers! i'm flying out today to florida to teach at a rep trade show this weekend,flying back home sunday, and packing up for my cruise which is less than a week away...so excited! i wanted to share this fun halloween tag i created using my new paper rosette die. i'm telling you i love this die - it's so much fun to make and even better that it's SHIPPING NOW! to create this tag, i used my retro halloween stamp set for the background images that i stamped in archival ink. next i inked the tag with distress ink (crushed olive, spiced marmalade, dusty concord), and then misted the tag with the new perfect pearl mists (perfect copper). i cut a grungeboard strip using my scallop on the edge die and used the 31 from the grungeboard mini set. i painted all of the grunge pieces black using a paint dabber, let it dry, and then added black soot distress stickles for the ultimate vintage sparkle effect (the pic doesn't do it justice). i created a ruffle along the bottom edge of the tag by gathering tissue tape and sticking it on the tag and adhering the grunge strip over it.
