See the Entire Halloween Tag Trilogy!

Awhile back, I showed my readers these three tags that I had created in a single inking session from Tim Holtz Distress Stains, intending to use them to create a Halloween tag series. The series is now complete, and I’m back today to share the results!

The first tag that I made was actually fall-themed, not strictly Halloween, and was created around a Tim Holtz blueprint stamp. The directions for creating the fall tag, along with the directions for the inking process that created all three tags, are in my Fall Pumpkin Tag project article.

The second tag that I inked in the series ended up a more faded mix of orange, green and purple than the first one after it sat for a long time in the sun and got exposed to a heavy dose of UV light. For this one, I wanted to play with my new Tim Holtz Crazy Cats stamps that I just bought. I created a spooky spider and spiderweb to freak out my scaredy cat with! Instructions for this tag – including the seed bead twist tie – are on the Buttons Galore blog.

Also on the Buttons Galore blog is my Spooky Halloween Tag, created from the first, most bright of the tags that I inked in this series. This one uses another Tim Holtz blueprint stamp, and is a bit different from my usual style, but I’m really pleased with how it came out.

For now, I’m enjoying my Halloween Tag series by using clothespins to attach them to a small spooky Halloween tree that I bought for my living room at a local chain craft store. After Halloween, they’ll find a home in an 8×8 album that I have set aside to store my tag art in.

    Years ago, you and your husband had a holiday tag a day contest viewers voted on before knowing who made which. That was so fun to follow! Do you see yourselves doing that again in the future? (Not necessarily this year.)

      Great question! Maybe we’ll have to see if we can get that in the schedule again!
