12 Tags of 2012-October

Wow, two posts in one day!  That hardly ever happens for me.  I had time this weekend to work on my October tag, for the Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2012, just before the deadline.  I've been mulling over what I wanted to do with my tag but I liked Tim's version so much that I pretty much followed the same design but with a few changes.  I decided to use the #10 tag so that I could add some more Halloween elements.  And I also wanted to try some other colors.  But I couldn't make up my mind which colors so I made three different tags!!

My first tag is the same color base as Tim's tag but I decided to tint the Distress Stickles Rock Candy Dry Glitter using Adirondack Sunset Orange alcohol ink.  I like how vibrant it turned out but wish I had thought to paint and glitter the spider web portion of the TH Sizzix Alterations Gothic Boo die cut black instead of orange.  The bats are from the Bewitching Hour die.  The spider is from the Candlelight Fright die.

On the second tag I added bright green to the base colors of purple and orange.  I LOVE the color you get using the Pitch Black alcohol ink on the dry glitter!!  It almost has a slight purple hue.  Love how this came out!  The cat is from the TH Sizzix Alterations Raven and Scaredy Cat die.

This last tag is my favorite color combination!  I love the pink, silver and black together and it's much prettier in person!  I used Picked Raspberry Distress Ink to brighten it.  The glitter is from my stash as I didn't have a bright pink alcohol ink to use with the dry glitter.  Using the larger tag allowed me to add the TH Sizzix Alterations On The Edge Graveyard die cut along the bottom.  This was the perfect touch!

I really had a lot of fun with these.  I had to stop myself from making several more in other color combinations!

Thanks for stopping by.  Now go make something !
