Happy Halloween

Hi There!  Suzz here bringing a little Halloween fun.

I am busy preparing Halloween cards and tags for Halloween.  I wanted a tag to attach to a gift being sent off to college.  The Scalloped Tag Set has so many choices I had to try to decide which medium I wanted to use.

After I decided that I wanted to use the corrugated cardboard decorating the tag was easy.

I started with a base of white gesso over the surface.  After I painted it and let it dry I decided to distress the tag and tore off portions of the top layer of the cardboard to give it a vintage look.   The next step was to stamp the Halloween ads over the painted surface.

Then a stamped owl with a few pieces of vintage ephemera and a few finishing touches and now I have a tag to attach to a goodie bag.

Don’t forget you can purchase any of the wonderful Basically Bare products including the tags at the Basically Bare Shop!
