Simon Says.................Tag It!

I have the honor of being this month's Simon Says Stamp Designer in the Spotlight and so today I am playing along with the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge.  This week's theme is "Tag it!"  The DT is featuring some Tim Holtz products.  It's not required that you use Tim Holtz projects to play along this week, but we would love it if you did! 

I have to say that this month of guest designing has caused me to step outside my comfort zone,but you know what? I am having a blast!   I love trying new things and playing around with Tim Holtz products is relatively new for me! 

Here's my tag featuring the Tim Holtz Trick of Treat stamp set.

Simon Says Stamp
I used the MFT Die-namics Traditional Tag STAX to die cutmy tag frmo some white CS.  I then stamped the skeleton from the Trick of Treat stamp set  in VersaMark ink and heat embossed with the Simon Says Stamp clear embossing powder.  Next I stamped the web with MFT black licorice hybrid ink.   I then sponged on some Tim Holt rusty hinge, mustard seed, pumice stone, and black soot distress inks.   I then spritzed the tag with Perfect Pearls Mist in mandarin and pewter. I wiped the skeleton down with a baby wipe before continuing.   I heat set it and then stamped the MFT Romantic Script background in MFT sweet tooth ink.  I stamped the bats in black soot distress ink.  I added the sentiment and                                                     sequins and ribbons to complete the tag.

Here's a close up:
