Hocus Pocus by Zoe

Good morning Lovelies I hope you're all well. Today it's my turn to share with you my tags I've made using the fabulous new Stamp sets "Hocus Pocus and Put a Spell on you". I'm not a big Halloween fan as such but I do enjoy making tags and cards for it and these new stamp sets are superb, I'm in awe of my teamies projects with them I hope you've been checking them out each day, if not here is the link.
My first tag I stamped using one of the fab background stamps from Tangled Fragments. Using a grey Memento Inkpad, I then used Distress Stain Sprays - Abandoned Coral, Blueprint Sketches and Twisted Citron. I used stamps from both sets to create my spooky scene, the Pumpkins I sprayed Fossilized Amber distress spray onto card and stamped and cut out the pumpkins to create dimension. I used some red glitter glue on the spider.

My second tag I used Distress inkpads - Blueprint Sketches, Mermaid Lagoon and Twisted Citron. I blended them using a blending tool and sprinkled water onto the tag and dabbed with paper towel and dried with my heat tool to create some texture. I then stamped using a background stamp from the same Tangled Fragments set with Blueprint Sketches ink. I dried thoroughly, dusted with an anti static bag and used the little "shooting star" type stamps with a Versamark inkpad and a sparkly embossing powder and heat embossed. I think they could pass for fireworks too, I used a Black Versafine inkpad to stamp the wonderful tree and bats. I stamped the little sentiment onto a die cut circle, a few very tiny dots of glitter glue for the bats eyes and some pretty blue Tulle to finish, voila!

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit today, I love reading your comments, don't forget to pop back tomorrow to see some more fabulous inspiration for these stamps.
Have a fantastic day xx Zoe xx
