My entry is early for the CC3C but I'm sliding into home plate with my October tag for Tim's 12 Tags of 2014. I'm just glad I made the deadline at this point with the whirlwind month I've had. ;) I combined the techniques on his October tag with the current Colored Crackle challenge at CC3C and I gotta say, I love my tag. As usual it finished totally different than my original vision but that's okay.
Challenge #14 using Tim's Compendium of Curiosities 3 book which you can order here.
At this point my image (Tim's fab witch) was stamped on my tag and embossed, then I used the stamped image on the mask sheet to cover and protect it from the texture that I added to my background.
I used Studio 490's translucent embossing paste which takes the color a bit differently than regular texture paste. After it dried I went back to add more depth in color with Distress Paint and Markers in some places because it was bugging me. ;)
I don't own the pumpkin image Tim used on his tag so I used another one with a black cat, colored with Distress Marker and gave it a shiny coat with Glossy Accents. After it dried I cut it out and adhered it to my tag.
I used some of the same Idea-ology products he used like the wish bone, alpha tiles, monocle, Halloween remnant rub ons, chain and trim. I couldn't resist using this Trick or Treat token though. :)
This is where the CC3C-Colored Crackle challenge part comes in and I can't go into the technique so guess you'll just have to buy the book. I did use Tim's window die and it was die cut from his grunge paper.
A close up of the crackle detail on the window and ...
on the window box piece which I actually used as trim at the top of the window because the bottom of my tag is kinda busy.
The Funkie Junkie is sponsoring Challenge #14 and Linda is generously offering a $25.00 gift certificate to her online store. Thanks Linda!
I'm entering this tag in the 12 Tags of 2014 challenge as well as the CC3C #14-Colored Crackle challenge (links above).
That's all for me today, we are off to go see our college girl but this time her big brother and SIL are coming with us so it'll be fun times in the 'Boro this weekend.
Hope all the little (and big) trick-or-treaters everywhere have a fun, safe Halloween and get lots of candy.
Thanks for looking!
