Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween my friends!
Are you ready for the tricks and treats tonight?
I am, I get 2 of my grand kids and a nephew. Boo.
I remember the good old days when we'd get dozens and dozens of trick or treaters when I lived in Springfield MO., what fun!
I made this for my co-worker, I can't wait until she see's it, she loves Halloween.
I started by inking up the tag with Distress rusty hinge and dusty concord ink and a blending tool. I had a "stencil" from another project of the Alterations umbrella man, who by the way reminds me of Freddy Kruger, right? Look at the hat and tilt of the head, creeeeepy! I used a bunch of Alterations dies on this tag, to find them all just click the Alterations link below..
I laid the stencil over the tag and stamped the script stamp from Tim Holtz's apothecary stamp set over Freddy ;) then I outlined him with my black marker. I put some tissue tape down one side that I colored with a Copic marker. I used the Alterations sewing room die for the mannequin, I stamped over that too, with the script stamp. I cut out the ladies head from the lost and found paper stack and made her a mask with a piece of the lace from the vintage lace die.
I cut a ticket with the ticket strip die stamped on it and added the 31 from the chip block die. I attached it to the tag with the tiny attacher.
I stamped the bats from Dylusions bits and bats set and popped them up with foam dots.
I gave the tag a spritz with Goosebumps to give it some shine here and there.
I tied the tag on a skull flower pick I got at the dollar store and stuck it in a pint jar filled with candy and tied some ribbon around the top of the jar.
I hope y'all have a great night!
Thanks for looking!
