I started by debossing my “Spooky” letters (GCD Big Alphabet Chipboard Letters) with the various Chip Art Tool designs. After I painted a black base, I added some sparkle with some glittery embossing powder. I also used an embossing pen to outline the spider web on one of the tags and embossed it.
I loved the idea of using glitter embossing powder, so I didn’t end up with inevitable loose glitter all over the floor!
I then painted each GCD Studios chipboard banner with black paint, crackle medium and then cream paint. I adhered the letters with Pop Dots and trimmed with various GCD Studios patterned papers with decorative edges. The Paris Nights Decorative paper pack has strips of decorative edge pieces that worked great for this.
Next, I moved onto the tags. I loved the idea of each tag being its own distinct little gem. I glued patterned paper to the tags and filed the paper to get precise edges of the tags.
I layered various stickers, punches and chipboard pieces for extra dimension. Here is an example of the start of the witch tag’s assembly. Every tag was also edged with Sepia Black ink from Color Box.
And lastly, this tag’s focal point is this adorable sticker made to look like a piece of candy and lots of layers underneath.
