I can't believe I've missed making both the June and July tags - I didn't want to miss the August one - and finally sat down at my craft table tonight after work to get it done - one day shy of the deadline!
Here is Tim's tag and you can see all his instructions here.
I am getting into full Halloween mode already - I just got Tim's new Lost Zombie die - so he is featured, front and (off) center!
I followed Tim's instructions for my stained background - using a mini brayer and Carved Pumpkin Distress Spray Stain. I sponged the edges with Distress Ground Espresso Ink. I used the Honeycomb die with pieces of Paper Stash/Regions Beyond and adhered it to the side of the tag.
I added Remnant Rubs - Curiosities and Small Talk/Occasion stickers. I messy stitched a few lengths on the left side. I cut the Lost Zombie out of black card, rubbed some Distress Picket Fence Paint over him and adhered him to the tag with foam dots. I rubbed Picket Fence paint on the Haunt charm from Adornments/Oddities, added a Jump Ring and looped it through a Wire Pin. I pinned it to a piece of Linen Ribbon that I looped through the hole on the tag.
I slipped a Drive In Theater ticket into one hand of Lost Zombie and a Jack O'Lantern in the other - both from Ephemera/Frightful. To finish off my tag - I added 3 black enamel dots and then splattered watered down black acrylic paint over the tag using a toothbrush.
