Bewitching Ride

I have been spending a lot of time in my craft room this weekend and I have a few things I would like to share with you. I don't want to overwhelm with you a long post and lots of pics so will limit it today to a couple of pictures of a tag I made for a swap on {{creativeblock-stampersanonymous}} blog a Yahoo group. I couldn't make up my mind which way I wanted the witch to face and fly so I did some of each. My DH was curious about the 'furry stuff' on the tag top but just couldn't get why I added it to the tags. Told him I thought it was cute and he said, "that's what counts then!" See why I love the dude!

I used several different techniques on this tag and I may use it in a class next month but I am not quite sure yet. I masked the moon on the tag then covered it and distress inked around the tag. I like the moon color better on the top tag because it is a brighter yellow. The bottom of the tag has an image embossed with a Tim Holtz texture fade. I think pretty much all the products used on these tags are from Tim Holtz, Ideology, and Ranger ink with a few exceptions. Check out the materials list at the bottom for a list of products used.
