Skeleton Distress Tag

I wish you could see in the photo the true goodness of this Perfect Distress technique of Tim Holtz's. Before I tell you about this tag and if you like the looks of it be sure to click on Tim's name to go to his web site for complete instructions, he's got a great video on how to do this.
I used Peeled Paint to lay down the first color on the tag, then I stamped the circles with Spiced Marmalade and painted them with Forever Violet Perfect Pearls, stamped the skeleton, bats, spiders, and sentiment, hit the edges with Dusty Concord and Fired Brick distress ink. I added the ribbons and the brad to finish off this SPOOKY creation.
When you hold the tag in your hands it's almost like a holographic effect because when you turn and twist the tag you can really see the purple pearl shine.

Supplies: Manilla tag, Stamps: Stampers Anonymous-Grunge Cirque, Little Yellow Bicycle-Frightful Collection, Stampin Up-Dark & Dreary, Piece of Poison, Ink:-Ranger Archival Ink-Jet Black, Distress Inks-Dusty Concord, Fired Brick, Spiced Marmalade, Peeled Paint, Ranger Perfect Pearl-Forever Violet, Studio G-brad, Stampin Up-Raven Lace, ribbon unknown.

Thanks for visiting and viewing,
