AC - Creepmas tag ...

....  Hello!!!  I've been having lots of fun making Creepmas projects - and have lots more scheduled for the challenge.  But this is an extra!  A couple of months ago I did a class with Valerie Brinkcheck where we were learning various techniques using Tim Holtz's distress inks.  We left the class with a pile of tags ready for use.  I used one of them to make this Creepmas Tag:

Creepmas Tag - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: Rick St Dennis Digi - Monster Candleholder; Winnie & Walter - Winter Wonderland
Inks: Distress - various; Versafine - Onyx Black
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Manilla Tag; Ribbon Fibres; Copic Markers; Embossing Folder; Wink of Stella

You can get this fun guy at Rick's Zibbet shop.  I printed this guy onto white card and coloured him with Copic markers.  Initially I was going to make him green, but I decided to go for orange as a bold contrast to the greens on the tag.  Once coloured, I fussy cut him out, went round the edges with a black marker, added a layer of sparkle with Wink of Stella and then adhered him to the tag.  I stamped the sentiment onto white card, cut it in half and drew a border by hand.  I finished the front with a cardinal bird - generously covered with sparkle.  The reverse of the tag is a little more Christmas oriented!!  I stamped a winter wonderland scene.  Here's a close up of the little monster with all his sparkle.

It's fun combining elements of Halloween with Christmas for the Creepmas look - it's a good thing I have several friends and most of my family who share my sense of humour :)  That's all for now.
