Elegant Spider Web Tag

 No, I have not lost my mind.  Yes, I know that technically it is still summer.  
When that creative juice flows, I just go with it.

 Quite the stunning spider web, eh?  I found it at The Graphics Fairy.  

I have a love for little tags like this.  They are the perfect size to mix so many types of fibers and fun things on.  I would absolutely use this image for a grownup Halloween card too.

I printed the image on this pretty gray vellum, and as soon as it came out of the printer, I sprinkled a mix of sparkle and black embossing powder on top.  I shook the excess off, and set with my heat gun.

The close up shows a bit of the sparkle I achieved.

I went with some silver and black washi tapes, and fun fibers in the same colors.

 Before I added anything to the tag, I rubbed some black metallic Rub n' Buff onto it.  I like how it gives it a charred look to it--as if someone started to burn it, and then changed their mind at the last minute.

Yes, I can be dramatic, thanks for noticing.



  1. This tag is fab. I love what you've done with the embossing powder - very effective.


I won't deny it, I love comments! Thanks...
