Creepy Kid Tag

     I wanted to do something really different for me and I think this tag is it.  I really enjoyed creating it, but it is a little creepy.
     The central image on this tag was stamped with black stazon onto glossy cardstock.  I used vintage photo distress ink to age it and distressed the edges and burned some of them and the center of the image with a cheap candle.  I also added a little white Signo pen to highlight the numbers.  Finally I added red stickles to the childrens' eyes.  The image was attached to the tag using staples I colored black with a sharpie.  I have never used staples before but liked the effect on this project.

     The tag was colored with Tim Holtz's special fall distress inks and I added a stamp of birds in flight and embossed a spider web in the corner which I then covered in rock candy stickles. Of course, all the edges were then distressed.

    I used a die cuts to create the flower and vines and added some dollar store spiders for more creepiness.
Lastly I used the stapler again to attach a black ribbon.

     I'm thinking that this will probably go to my neighbor as a Halloween Boo gift.
