Halloween Tag

Hi! We are back with our second dose of inspiration from Jane Tyrrell today. Are you in the mood for something spooky? We love how Jane has combined our NEW hand stamps with our skeleton and skull stamps to create her awesome Halloween tag…


Good Evening

We are already a week into October which is still sharing its glorious colours everywhere.



Today I am using the new “You Are Not Alone” set



together with the Mr Bone Jangles stamp set



the moon from the Believe in Unicorns Set



the fab text stamp from the Scripted Streets stamp set




 

As soon as I saw the new “You Are Not Alone” set I had two initial design ideas. The first I had was for the sky inspiration card I created here . The 2nd was to get the hands to hold Mr Bone Jangles skull! Yes I know that my imagination works in very strange ways.


At the end of the month it’s Halloween, when things go bump in the night and ghouls and witches fly…mwwhhha haa haaaa so I thought it a good time to put my second idea together.

I always create tags for my big and small kids goodie bags so today’s make is one of them.

I started with a kraft tag to work on. I stamped the moon in white ink and added some splatters of distress ink to make an autumnal coloured primary layer. I also stamped some of the clouds (you can see this further down)



I gradually built up the background, by stencilling on the skull, and then stamped on Mr Bone Jangles. I also red embossed one of  the star bursts from the Rays of Light stamp set and added some text from scripted streets in red ink.





I added some white pen and red embossed the edges.

This became the base of my tag.


Next it was time for some Hammer Horror!  (I’m showing my age now). I was also really fascinated by the anatomy dissection lectures I attended as a student at King’s College during my physiotherapy training and I still love anatomy now.  A few years back my daughter and I really enjoyed the Body Worlds show which came to this country and I drew on all these memories for my inspiration.

I red and black embossed the hands


I amputated  trimmed off the tip of the back finger 😉 so that the hand could hold the skull.


I then added a little more shading using distress inks.



I also have a fab skeleton hand in my charms collection and a saw brad so I bloodied them up!


It was then time to put my tag together.


Here it is…



with some close ups…





and one last shot…



I really had some great Hammer Horror fun making this and plan some more Halloween tags in this vein (pardon the pun!)


Thanks so much for indulging me in my Halloween fun. I hope you might be inspired to try something similar with these fab stamps? They are so versatile for so many very different themes.


Back soon.


Bye for now,
