Gloomsville Witch Tag


Here is a tag I made using a digital stamp called Gloomsville Witch (The Witch of Gloomsville and her Gothic Cat Cesar) from The Octopode Factory.

I first mixed together white and black Gesso to get this great grey colour and coated the entire surface of the tag with it. 

I then used a Tim Holtz spiderweb embossing folder and rubbed black Staz On over the raised webs. 

For the ground I used texture paint and when it was dry, coloured over it with brown Sharpie markers.

I then added a spooky tree and tombstones with white embossing paste and a  stencil that I bought at Michaels. 

I coloured the tree with Distress Ink in Gathered Twigs and Vintage Photo and painted the tombstones with the same grey gesso I used on the background.

I coloured the witch and her kitty with Prismacolour markers. I fussy cut them out and popped them up on foam dots. I added Glossy Accents to their eyes and the star hanging off her hat.

I used a die cut from K & Company that said October 31 and placed an epoxy circle on top.

I added sparkly spiderweb ribbon to the top that I bought at Michaels to finish it off.
