First of all I would like to say Hello to my new followers and thank you for joining me on my crafty journey.

As you can see I am in Halloween mode with this tag. I read that the current challenge over at
Dragons Dream Tag it On,  is as always to make a tag, ' add a word of your choice, plus die cuts, layers and brown.'.
So I decided to enter, as it was so interesting  with all the elements.
The plain card layers were random stamped  using a spiders web stamp. Shaded with my all time favorite distress ink, Vintage Photo. This stamp and the Halloween ticket are from a stampers Anonymous set.
I embossed some pine tress onto one of the layers and rubbed them over with and old brown ink pad to make them stand out.
The letters of my chosen word BOO are die cuts as is the bird, pocket watch and fence trim.  [Sizzix]
The embossing powder used on the bird and letters is a copper brown shade that I have had for many years, the beak and watch trim is Frantage Aged gold embossing powder.
A few additions from my trimming box to complete the look.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look I always appreciate your comments.
