Tag You Are It!

Remember as a child playing tag. As an adult you probably seldom play tag but you can still play with tags which seems to be a trend right now as everywhere I look I see projects using tags.

Tomorrow is Halloween and I thought it would be fun to create some tags to tie on latex gloves filled with treats for family members.

 It is hard to see in the photo but the wicked spider is suspended from a piece of white thread. I used water color paint for the spider after embossing with black embossing powder..
 The wicked trees are heat embossed with black embossing powder. (I discovered since I don't have one of those magic embossing pads that bath talc sprinkled on the card stock first worked best for getting a nice embossing job) I only used part of the stamp as it was too large. The bats are heat embossed and glaze pens used to color the eyes and fangs.
 The background is tattered screen background stamp heat embossed with white embossing powder. The dripping blood stamped with red Stazon ink and colored with a glaze pen. The bats were stamped and Radiant Neon Amplify used on the wings and a glaze pen used on the body. The mummy's eye was colored with a glaze pen.
I took the Happy Halloween stamped image and cut it apart to use. Don't be afraid to cut apart stamped images. Although it was heat embossed with white pearl embossing powder it turned out being more of a gray color. Scardy Cat was colored with Radiant Neon Amplify with a black glaze pen for the whiskers and yellow and orange for the eyes.

And here are the filled gloves. I'm going to put them in a bag and family members will have to grab them out of the bag.

  1. Truly horrific tags....I love them! The use of surgical gloves for treat bags is genius....I may have to steal that idea for next year. Your Halloween crafts are superb....thanks for sharing them with blogland.
