Spookier and spookier!!!

Hey bloggers,
I have been in a tag making inky mess this week and I have loved it.Here is my very orange tag full of halloweeny things, all  from Tim Holtz plate ..

I started by inking the tag with rusty hinge, spiced marmalde and wild honey distress inks,I then spritzed and dropped water onto the tag and dabbed it off.
Once dry I overstamped with various images and embossed some with crafty notions detail embossing powder.

I filled the poison bottle form 7 gypsies with hair gel coloured with alcohol inks!!
The chipboard numbers were covered with distress stickles in spiced marmalade and then when dry scuffed with black distress ink. A few tiny attacher staples added, just because I love them!!!!

I am entering this tag for the following challenges:
