Nancy thinks Tim’s Alcohol Inks make a great background for a spooky birthday card, so she stamped Tim’s Skeleton of a Man on a transparency sheet coloured with AI's – stamped a large tag with Dusty Concord and Wild Honey – used the Scrollwork Alterations die-cut to give a little more of a “Goth” feel to the tag – added a bit of Tissue Tape, a Grunge Board bat – then gave the card to her “spooky” cousin.
Terry had never made something spooky and vintage style before, but had a lot of fun making a tag to use as a bookmarker. She has used lots of glimmermist from Tattered Angels and Distress inks from Tim Holtz: Rusty Hinge, Vintage Photo, Peeled Paint, Dried Marigold, the spooky elements she got from the internet and her lace is from her own stash.Distress Stickles, Crackle Accents and the gorgeous Fabulous Flourish stamp by Hero Arts. Surprise....she created a flower cluster using the Tattered Floral and Tattered Leaves Dies by Tim Holtz.
Tim Holtz Fragments for windows, an Alteration die for the fence, Tim Holtz stamps for skeletons and owls and many Crafty Secret images make up this spooky mini.
DCWC Mariposa, 7 Gypsies Victoria and also some Basic Grey. She also used two sets of Hero Arts stamps to decorate the envelopes and sleeve: Sew Artsy and Everyday Sayings.
Raven and Scaredy Cat die, Trick or Treats and Retro Halloween stamps, and some Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel for a really spooky effect!
My Spookay canvas is full of Tim Holtz stamps from the Mini Halloween Plate ... I have also used lots of fragments and Grungepaper ... the delicious purple glimmer is the new Ranger Perfect Pearls spray in forever violet ... already a firm favourite with me.
Tim Holtz Scrollwork On The Edge die. The project was embellished with Tim Holtz Grungeboard Mixed Minis painted with Adirondack Acrylic Paint Dabber in Pitch Black and coated with Ranger Crackle Accents. Linda also used Prima Say it With Crystals for a bit of bling.
Kim decided to make a coffin shaped treat box from gorgeous Graphic 45 HALLOWEEN IN WONDERLAND papers. Her spooky tag was created by inking some glossy card with distress inks, heat embossing the forgotten garden image from Tim Holtz URBAN TAPESTRY stamps. Then sanding the background to distress. Using the spider from Wendy Vecchi BOTANICAL ART as the starting point for the web, which she hand drew with WHITE INKSSENTIAL PEN. Kim then blended rusty hinge distress ink all over the tag to give a spooky glow and finished with an adhesive gem.
Dan has recently been scaring himself silly watching the dvd set of "American Gothic", which is where he got his "there's someone at the door" inspiration from! This project features Tim Holtz stamps, distress ink pads, paint dabbers and Tim's sanding block!
