Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2015-October

I love the Fall, especially October.  Things have been so hectic that the month has just flown by.  I made time this weekend to make my October tag.  You can see how Tim created his tag here.  Unfortunately, I do not own any of Tim's new dimensional dies from Sizzix.  So...I modified the Skull die, using my bone folder  to create some dimension.

 I used Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy,  and Frayed Burlap Distress Inks to create my skull, Frayed Burlap and Walnut Stain Distress Inks to create his teeth, and Fired Brick and  Aged Mahogany to create the background.

I assembled the skull adding some dimension by scoring 3 points and cutting the background slightly smaller than the die.  I added an Ideaology spider in his eye for good measure.

I finished off the tag with additional Ideaology goodies including "beware" coin from Oddities Adornments, "Frightful" from Wicked Alpha Parts enhanced with Fired Brick Distress Paint, a spider and chain border from Gothic Industrious Stickers, and finally a piece form the Frightful Ephemera Pack.  I tied a piece of black tulle from my stash to the top of the tag. 

I had so much fun playing with this tag.  I certainly put me in the Halloween spirit (good thing...Halloween is only 3 days away!)  I would also like to enter my tag in the following challenges:

Frilly and Funkie-Something Wicked

  5. Hey Kim!! This is such a cool tag and take on Tim's October tag. I don't have those dimensional monster die faces either. But I think you did such a fabulous job of compensating for that with your very cool and creepy skeleton head. Your tag is really wonderful! I also wanted to thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving such a nice comment.
