The holiday is getting closer, Halloween is my favorite time of the year. This card starts with a small tag I made in a group. You can see my large tags here, here and . This one begins with the same black soot and purple hued distress oxide inks. I stenciled with texture paste the skulls. Since this tag was small enough I decided to add it to an A2 card. I used my brand new Recollections Green Witch paper stack as background paper. I added all of this to a black shimmer card base.
The embellishments I used here are so much fun! Most are Tim Holtz that I also purchased recently. However, the bingo markers are a reclaimed thrift store purchase.

Today I have the final of 3 Distress Ink Idea-ology large tags I created. I purchased the Tim Holtz Idea-ology Ephemera and Bones recently and was very excited to play with them. This is the only tag I did not use the texture paste/stencil combination. I left this one a bit more flat but the bones have a real dimension. I also added three black gems to the spider for a body.

Welcome to the latest challenge from Bitten By the Bug 2. Our challenge this time around is sports. I created a layout of a half marathon my son ran last year. He finished first in his age division. I must say I did not take any of these photos. I borrowed them from the internet. They were featured on the race website and the local news.
Hello readers, Alicia with a Lawn Fawn card. I love these cute little images. I have so much fun coloring them. I also enjoy creating Distress Oxide backgrounds. Together, I spent a lot of time creating the elements before combining them all on my galaxy card.
In addition to the following Dies R Us products, I used Colorbox black pigment ink, Judikins black detail embossing powder, Judikins Diamond Glaze, alcohol markers, gold shimmer spray, sequins, twine with glossy black, yellow, and white card stock.
Thank you for stopping by!

Hello, I am back with another Distress Oxide tag. I used the same ink colors as last time and continued to use the texture paste I tinted with Perfect Pearls and Pearl Ex and the bat stencil. However, after that this tag switched is up with some witches and moon die cut.
I splattered with shimmer mist before adding the metallic silver moon die cut and witches.

Hi there. It's Alicia and it's been a few years but I have joined the DT again. I am so excited to bring you my first project! I created a tag pop up book as a birthday card for my nephew. I am sure the pop up will be sure to thrill him as I hope it does you. With the assistance of Karen Burniston assembly videos, these kinetic cards really go together quite easily for a wow factor that wasn't a lot of work.
The following is a list of Dies R Us Store products I used. In addition I used Stampin Up stamps, ink and punch for the sentiments, twine, markers, card stock and Quick Quotes designer papers.

I spent an entire weekend inking up and getting messy on some manila and kraft tags. This one is my husband's favorite. I started the projects with a layer of Distress Oxide inks. I used a couple of purples and black soot to cover the base. I spritzed with water to create the chalky effect. I thought it made the perfect spooky background.
