Hello, my crafty friends! October is a month of fun… cooler weather and wonderful smells, my birthday (the big ‘six-oh’ this year), Halloween, and a little closer to Christmas! Another fun challenge is live over at Gecko Galz and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project for the October Witching Hour Customer Challenge!
I was in the mood to create a tag, so I created a fun and creepy wicked tag that doubles as a gift card holder. And it’s packed with lots of layers and fun printed Gecko Galz stuff! I used elements from the Frightfully Delightful Digital Junk Journal Kit and Alter It Digital Collage Sheets.
This was so much fun! I hand-cut my tag and distressed the edges. I added some Gecko Galz digital paper, cork tape and rust paste with stencil. While the rust paste was drying, I gathered Gecko Galz digital ephemera, brads and other doo-dads, flowers and ribbon. And how creepy is that little girl?! LOL!
I fussy cut and inked the edges of all the pieces of digital ephemera and started laying out all the elements.
When I was happy with the placement of everything, I started gluing and adhering. Fortunately, I had punched out the watch face and covered it with Glossy Accents the night before so it was dry and ready to use.
I had lots of ribbon scraps to use on the top – I’m a ‘ribbon ho’ and don’t throw much away, lol!
There are tons of layers on this, that’s for sure. Did I mention how creepy that little girl is?! I dotted Glossy Accents on her eyes for a little extra creepiness…
Here’s a shot of the back showing the gift card holder. Really happy with how this turned out!
