Things That Make You Go Ooooo

This time over at Dragons Dream TIO Silvia is in charge, and her recipe is entitled Don't Fear!! She has chosen a scary image, a crowd of purple and textures. I have to admit this challenge has been the one that made me go oooh??
My only scary images (besides the ones used to make Christmas cards in June) are from my Cherry Pie graveyard scene.
The tag has been stamped with a text stamp, inked in Stampin Up inks in various shades of purple, then run through an embossing folder that has been inked in a lighter purple Distress Ink, then lots of Black Soot DI has been applied to the edges.
The graveyard and skull have been stamped onto tissue paper then stuck down with watered down pva. This has then been embossed with Frantage embossing enamel in white. 
The Nevermore stamp is also by Cherry pie, and  has been stapled down and further staples added to the edge and to close the skulls eyes (I must be a very disturbed person on some level lol). The moon has been embossed in white onto vellum.
Every scary tag needs a skull charm to finish it off, and some black organza ribbon.
Please head over to the Tag It On blog to see my teamies fabulous entries then make a tag and we can come look at yours!
As Simon Says Stamp And Show are asking for Depths of Distress I'm entering this over there.
Thanks very much for looking x

  2. Great use of your "scary" images... a fantastic tag, love all the details.

  3. I love all those elements that combined to make a really atmospheric tag! I might need to go hunting for those stamps!

  4. Gorgeous tag, but after your brutal descriptions I am wondering what Freud would have said!! Love the colours you have used! Valerie

  5. Spooky Sue! This could cause distress on so many levels!!! Love how you have put this together. Hugs, Buttons x

  6. awesome tag, love the texture and the stamps (almost used the same on my tag)

  8. This is so unusual and very interesting. A great tag for sure


  9. Marvelous TAG, love it. I like this Cherry Pie plate very much, sadly I have neglected it a bit of late ...
