12 Tags of 2016 {My October Version}

Hello friends!  Hope you're having a wonderful day!  I'd like to share my October version of Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of 2016.  Tim Holtz has a wonderful tutorial on his blog with step-by-step instructions on how to create this spooky fun technique here.  I'm really loving this awesome remix of his Patchwork Collage and Sizzix Monster techniques!  I had to improvise a little so here's my take on it!  The Sizzix Monsters are on my wish list, I had better hurry and get them...they will soon be retired!
I ended up using the #10 Manila sized tag as my base.  I just needed a little more room to create for this one.  I mixed a little bit of paper stash, ephemera and stamping for my background.  All my metal pieces also received a little Mushroom Alcohol Ink.
I just can't even express to you how much I love the Distress Crazing Medium with Distress Crayons together!  I don't think I will ever tire of it ;)
I don't have the "Day of the Dead 1" Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz stamp set…yet {wink}, but I think it would've been perfect on the Headstone as well.  I stamped the skull image on some vintage book paper.  Then cut out, applied Distress Crazing and Distress Crayon to give aged appearance as well.
I hope you enjoyed todays project!  You can find the supplies I've used via the links below.  If you have any questions please let me know I love your comments, I truly appreciate each and everyone of them!  As always thanks for stopping by and I'll see you next time!  xx
