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

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 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 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…

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!)
Bye for now,
This is so awesome Jane! Love all the dripping blood.. the hands work so well for Halloween! Thank you for the brilliant inspiration ♡
