Hey there, Crafty Friends!! Can you believe it's October already?? Yup, it's time to bring on the changing of the leaves. Fall means sweater season, pumpkin pies, and candy! Yes, let's not forget the candy!! Lots and lots of CANDY!! All because of Halloween!!
Halloween, my favorite holiday of the year! It's gonna be here just in a few weeks and I am, over the moon, excited!!
And today's projects I want to make something Halloweeny! AND, on top of that, It's my turn to host the KaDoodle Bug Designs Challenge. So, I decided to "kill two birds with one stone" and combine both.
This KaDoodle Bug challenge is ALL ABOUT TAGS!!!
If you would like to enter you can join the KBD Challenge Group.
Each challenge last for 2 weeks. Lots of time to get your projects in. The current challenge's deadline is October 16th. You have until midnight CST of that day to enter your projects into that challenge gallery.
For my TAG I used KBD's Charmkin Cuties - Pumpkin Baby.
I've loved him from the very first moment I saw his bald little head and adorable binky!! I finally got to use him and I'm so glad I did!! He came out super adorable... even better than I imagined!!
Of course, it being a paper piecing, I just had to airbrush him with my ebrush.
Which is great because I ran out of peach / flesh colored paper and made my own by ebrushing white paper (yes, WHITE paper) with my Spectrum Noir markers in FS4 and FS9. I bet you couldn't even tell it start off as white paper, could ya??!!
I ebrushed the rest of him in a combination of Spectrum Noir and Sharpie markers to get his finished look. I'll post the complete list of markers in the supply list below.
I know when I say tag most people envision a small 2"x3" or 3"x5" little thing... but that is soooooo not the case when it comes to my tags... I like making my tags HUGE. And, this is no exception. This tag is a nice whopping 5.5"x 8", which commands attention when tied on gifts. Which is exactly what I want. LOL
Look at his adorable face... and those eyes, they make it so hard to not stop and stare, right?! And I found the most perfect sentiment in my stamps set from Pink and Main! It was from last month's FREEBIE( w/ purchase of $30) stamp set called Pumpkin Mouse.
And, the die I used to cut out the sentiment is also from Pink and Main. It is from their Stitched Greetings Dies Set.
Topped it off with some black wired ribbon I bought years ago from Sam's club... and, it was perfect and screamed Halloween CUTENESS!!
