Tim Holtz Oct '13 tag

Well, I'm not the biggest Halloween fan but this year I thought... heck with it, get into it!  I like Tim's Oct tag ( I like all Tim's tags) so this is my first real go at following his instructions and techniques to make this tag.  I didn't have a lot of the product needed so I improvised a fair amount.  The distress paints I used were antique linen, forest moss, seedless preserves and I couldn't find the ripe persimmons anywhere in town but I did find a reinker so I used the white distress paint and the reinker to make my own ripe persimmons paint.  I think I was rather clever.  :)   I don't have most of the die cuts so I searched thru my endless stash of stuff and found a circular chipboard piece and I used that as the border with the glitter.  Again, I do not have any of the distress glitter ( go figure, I have almost everything else ) but I did have some Martha glitters and some Doodlebug glitters so I used them instead.    The cat and the Happy Hauntings come from a Graphic 45 stamp set.  And the side scrolls on the right are a clear acetate image that I found along the way and decided it added a little bit of extra to the tag.  The top is a purple moon button with glitter.  And the crinkle ribbon was stained with ripe persimmons and mustard seed.  It's all about the glitter.   Here, is my tag.

Well, I better get cleaned up, it's my sons birthday tonight and I'm taking him out for supper.  I currently have orange fingers and I look like a glitter bomb went off on me.  LOL  Thanks for stopping in!
