12 Tags of 2016-October

Today I am playing along with Tim's 12 Tags of 2016 for October.
I started with some Halloween clip art added to a #8 kraft tag to create the tags background, arranging in a collage fashion and adhering with glue stick.
 Black distress crayon was used to outline each section, and rubbed in with fingers. Picket fence was added to lighten some areas that I had too dark.
  Black soot was flicked on tag.
I then created some metal stitching with my stapler.
 Added mesh material colored with black soot.
 Brushed pewter and black soot distress paint was applied on a chipboard spider, to try and create the metal look that Tim had for his Monster October tag.
Finishing by adhering black construction paper to the back of tag.

Happy October! Hugs,Tee
