Today I’m excited to share some super fun tags I made over the weekend! Fall brings cooler weather and Halloween crafts and decor! I couldn’t help myself and had to create a few cute witchy skirt tags. So let’s get on to how I made these lovelies.
- Dylusions Legs Eleven Stamp set
- watercolor paper (hot press smooth)
- Brea Reese Watercolor Ink
- Emerald Creek Embossing Powder (silver sparkle)
- Archival Ink pad & embossing ink pad
- paint brush & water brush
- colored Pencils (I used Polychromos)
- spider web doilies
- crepe paper
- staples and stapler
- adhesive of choice & foam squares
- spider charms by Tim Holtz
- random Halloween embellishments/stickers
Stamp images on watercolor paper. I eventually used different stamped images because this set was on cold press watercolor paper. I switched to hot press which is smoother.
Paint and color stamped images. I painted with Brea Reese watercolor inks, let dry and then added some depth by using colored pencil on top.
Paint background for tags. Cover page with water and then add watercolor ink randomly. Dry. Add water drops and remove with napkin to create texture and depth.
Splatter watercolor ink over background …no dilution with water this time.
Trim watercolored background to desired tag size. Add embossing powder to the edge of one tag.
Make skirts from crepe paper and spiderweb doilies. To make a crepe paper skirt accordion fold/gather the crepe paper into a half moon shape and staple. To make the spiderweb doilies into a skirt… just fold in half.
Fussy cut stamped legs. Add adhesive squares to the back of striped legs stamped image. Place on embosssed tag background. Staple on crepe paper skirt and embellish with stickers and other various items in your stash.
Finish tags by adding stickers, ribbons and charms etc.
I hope you enjoyed these tags as much as I enjoyed creating them. They’ll be perfect gifts for my swap mates or as gift tags on a package for my favorite Halloween loving friend. Be sure to follow me on all my social media sites as well.
Until next time… go make something awesome!
