I've been playing with some of my new TH layered stencils which arrived in the week. This is the ruler one embossed though the big shot and sanded back.
I did the same with the clocks on but embossed it onto a kraft tag.

I put the stencil back over the tag and coloured parts with iced spruce distress paint, from the winter collection which I also got earlier in the week. It's gorgeous and gives it a steely blue effect. I then went in with distress ink to colour the tag, vintage photo, walnut stain, gathered twig, aged mahogany and faded jeans. The paint resists the ink.
I stamped the TH skull onto white card, tinted the bones, eyes and teeth again with iced spruce distress marker from the new set of colours. I used gathered twig to colour the outer edges after they had been given the paper distresser treatment. I ended up giving him little gears for eyes!!

And finally the finished tag.
Tag Along have a theme of Steampunk Halloween for their challenge this week.
