Under My Spell with Sizzix

Hello, hello! Happy Monday friends! I have some spooky Sizzix fun for you today. A Halloween art tag made with some favorites from Tim Holtz and Brenda Walton.

I’ve been having the most fun playing with Tim’s Distress products. I picked up a bunch while I was out in California this past summer, and put them all to use on this tag. There’s ink, metallic paint, glitter, marker, and crackle paint here. I think I was going for a more-is-more kind of look. šŸ˜‰

The poison bottle is one of Tim’s Halloween Blueprint stamps from Stampers Anonymous. I picked those up out in California, too. And I’ve been counting the days until I could put them to use.

I love how the finish on the bottle came out. I did a bit of watercoloring, then added in a touch of glitter and Vintaj patina, followed by a super heavy coating of Distress crackle paint.

The little ghostie charm is old, old, old, and was a very brassy gold before he got a make-over with Vintaj patina ink.

Paper and stickers are from Authentique. A mixture of this year’s and last year’s Halloween collections. Tissue tape, pin, and staples from Tim Holtz. The embossing folder is Brenda Walton’s Elegant set. Then a bit of lace and trim finish things off.

  1. This spooky and darling at the same time! Love the little ghostie with his makeover. The sweet bow and all the distressing that makes it look vintage really grabbed my attention. Love it. I made cards with a really sweet group of ladies Saturday. I wanted to join some online challenges but just ran out of time. Have a good week!

  2. Super cute tag Audrey! Love the little ghost! I know your house is probably starting to look spooky inside and out with all your beautiful decorations! I always look forward to seeing your photos! Hope you have a great week!

  3. Super amazing tag, Audrey! Love the effect you achieved on the poison bottle with crackle paint! And, the little ghost is too CUTE!

  5. More is more and definitely not too much on this handmade gem. I love this tag; you would certainly be a wonderful addition to Tims’ DT. This is stunning. Perfect for Halloween but I also love the touch of elegance you added with stitching and seam binding. Your ghostie charm is sooooo cute!

  6. This tag is absolutely amazing, Audrey! I love everything about it especially the glitter on the bottle and that sweet little ghost nestled in the ribbon (and no spiders to be seen!). Looks like you hit the jackpot of Tim’s products while in California–love the items he makes.

  8. LOVELOVELOVE! I am smitten with the incredible textures on the bottle. And you did an incredible job with that stamp. What a fabulous Halloween tag!

  9. Over the moon for the crackle finish on that bottle and that cutie pie ghostie. Don’t know anything about the vintaj ink but it sure made him look like he has a porcelain finish. Cool!
