2 Tags for Day 19 of 31 Days of Halloween

I have 2 tags to share with you today. One is cute, and the other…not so much. Let’s start with cute…


I used Vampire Rye from The Wild Flower Kids…who just happens to be sponsoring 31 Days today! So if you happen to find Rye hangin’ out in a weird place…you’ve gotta email Terra! Visit her blog for all the deeets.

I made this tag for Phoenix. Shhhh! Don’t tell him! He’ll get it on Halloween! I think he came out adorable! I love his single fang that’s showing. You can click on any of my photos to see them bigger.


The color came out way off in this pic… I am afraid to say it but I think there may be something wrong with my camera! The color is often wrong, and it’s just not focusing anymore. Yikes!!! I cannot live without my camera!!!

Anyway…Vampire Rye is colored with my colored pencils, and I stuck him on a tag. I added some red Stickles to the edges, a “boo” at the top and some of my fabulous fibers that I have in my stash. Wouldn’t you love to win him???

Now on to the not so cute…be forewarned…this one is creeeepy!


This is one of the latest (and 1 of my new fave!) images from Strange Skin. It’s from their 2nd Famous Monster collection. I love all things Egyptian and this is no exception. I will be using this digi a LOT! I have plenty of ideas for him…one including using some real hieroglyphics!


This guy is also done up with colored pencils, and I have to say…I think he looks awesome! I mounted him on another tag that I had made, and I wrapped the tag using masking tape. I totally swiped that idea from Kapree’s Blog. She made an awesome book!!! I distressed the tape using Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Then, I took the bugs stencil from my Martha Stewart cupcake stencil collection (what a fabulous purchase that was!), and inked them all over with Black Soot Distress Ink.


Here’s the problem though…the ink can be wiped off! So I tried to Mod Podge it (after I took these pics). BAD idea!!! The ink wiped right off!!! Luckily, I only did a teeny part of the bottom, and I was able to clean off the Mod Podge. I guess I’ll just use some spray sealer…or go over it with embossing powder…but I really don’t want it shiny, so I probably won’t go that route. Once I figure that out, I will re-ink the bugs that got wiped off. Any other suggestions?

I hope you liked my tags! I’ll probably have a card to share tomorrow. For now, please visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, posted on my sidebar. Have an inspiring day!!!

PS: There was a bit of a mix up with the hidden image. Terra hasn't been able to be on the computer, so instead of it being today...there will be a hidden image tomorrow. :}

WOW! Way cool tags! The little Drac is a doll and the mummy totally freaks me out! FAB coloring and love the bugs. xxD
Danielle said…
Did you try a heat gun? I have found, that when stuff wipes off, or won't dry correctly, a heat gun works for me. Good luck!

LOVE both tags!! You are a coloring genius!

Way cool Mummy will have to go check'em out. And I'm stealing the masking tape idea too.LOL
Steph said…
Love your tags! I like that you use a different shape on the first one, great idea. The second one is way cool, love the macking tape and bugs and that mummy is colored wonderfully, looks old and dusty.
