"Spooky Doll Halloween Tag"!!

Hey Everyone!! Happy T.G.I.F to you all!! I hope your Friday is off to a great start. For today's project I have a Halloween tag I made featuring my daughter's artwork. She drew a wonderful "Spooky Doll" and once I saw it I knew I had to turn it into a tag. The image is spooky, cute and perfect for Halloween.
Here are the pics of the completed tag for you to peruse:

I used a manila tag measuring 2 5/8 x 5 1/4".
I added some torn strips of olive green patterned paper from a DCWV Stack 180 pack to the top and bottom.
I roughed up the edges and inked them with a dark brown ink.
I took a black patterned paper from the same DCWV pack, roughed up the edges, and added it to the middle of the tag.
I used my ATG gun to adhere the papers to the tag.
I left a few areas of the tag uncovered and used a Rambunctious Red marker to add some color to the those areas.
I went back in with a needle and black embroidery floss to add some stitch lines between the papers.
To finish off the background, I added some more embroidery floss to the top and bottom.
And set the tag aside to work on the image.

For the image, I used a combo of Copics and Bic MarkIt markers to color it in:

-Doll's Body- C01, C03, C05
-Open Areas- C07, Tuxedo Black
-Stuffing- C01
-Inside- Rambunctious Red, Pink Flamingo

I used some waffle paper and grey ink to sponge a pattern on the doll.
I added a few highlights with a white gel pen and inked the edges in grey.
I used foam tape to attach the doll to the tag.

To finish the tag off, I added a Tim Holtz Trinket Pin, embroidery needles, "Boo" sentiment and a few bats.

And voila!! tag complete!!

I hope you enjoyed this project for today!
Thanks for stopping by, enjoy the rest of your Friday and Peace!! :)
