Boo! ...tag using my new Cling Film Emboss technique...

Hi there! Me again! :)

Have you had a chance to play yet? No?! Need more inspiration? Well, as promised earlier on today here's the Halloween tag where I used my newly found technique that I simply call 'Cling Film Emboss'.. catchy, I know, but I couldn't think of anything fancier :)

Once I heat embossed the pattern created using my cling film and the Distress Embossing powder (Rust) I added some more Distress Inks, sponging, splatters and some stamping using Tim Holtz Stamps...

I colourized my tulle, my Tim Holtz clock die cut and added some crackle to it (also Tim Holtz), the Stampotique little weirdo was a gift from my bestie Donna for me to try out before I spend more pounds. I coloured the poor sod in using only Distress inks and cut him out. I went over the edges with my black Big Brush pen too. Call me perfectionist! :) I also used some black glittery fun foam, some cuttlebug fence die cut (metal works set) and a branch (Tim Holtz). The sentiment and the bat are cut out using nothing but my scissors using nothing more than my imagination :) This was fun! I feel even closer to the little weirdos now, Donna! I might have to get one!:) Or two... or three... see what you did!!!

Here's my finished tag... I hope you like it ;)
