Aud sentiments Challenge - Thursday 15 August 2013 - Anything but a birthday card plus a sentiment

It is Thursday again and it is time for another challenge over at the Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog.  This fortnight the challenge is "anything but a card - plus a sentiment".

This fortnight the Aud Sentiments Challenge is sponsored by StampArt Design by Kathryne.

Here is a message from Kathryne:

Hello stamping friends! Thank you for welcoming me into your home and hearts. My desire is to inspire hope and joy, with celebrations of love and inspiration at the heart of each drawing for you. I am delighted to sponsor your challenge and I look forward to hearing from you.

The winner of this challenge will receive 5 free digital images of their choice from the StampArt Design catalogue at Whimsy Stamps.
I decided to use the StampArt Design imaged called "Autumn Friends" and decided to make two Halloween tags.  We don't go into Halloween much here in the UK but I like to play and have a bit of fun with images like this so whatever I make I always give away to people who come knocking at the door.
I have coloured both images in with Promarkers and inked around the edges with my Inkylicious brushes and Tim Holtz's Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Black Soot distress inks.  I used the same inks on the Inkylicious card which I cut into the shape of tag.  Cor the ink doesn't half squeak when you rub it onto the card.  I thought I had a host of mice in the house!!!
The backing papers I have used are from the Bearly Mine Designs Halloween Hauntings digi set.  I have inked around the paper with Black Soot distress ink.

The first tag has been embellished with a sentiment off the computer, some spider ribbon, mesh fabric, pumpkin charm, paper flower with markings add with a black Promarker, brad and fibres through the top of the tag.

The second tag has been embellished with a spider's web (this is off one of the Bearly Mine Halloween Hauntings papers and I have cut out and edged with Black Soot distress ink), white mesh ribbon, sentiment off the computer, fibres and some buttons with threads tied through the middle.

I am entering these tags into the following challenges:
