I cut out the raven using my Cricut and the "October 31st" cartridge, then cut a 3"x6" piece of Tim's halloween word paper from his Idea-ology 12 x 12 paper pad, ripped both ends, and applied it to a tag. Sponged Spiced Marmalade DI around the edge, followed by Black Soot DI. I already had a stash of grungeboard bookplates cut from Tim's Alterations Tag die, so this saved a minute or two. Rubbed Versamark over the bookplate and covered it with black EP in which I mixed a few specs of Stampendous Frantage Mica Fragments. They bond when the EP is melted. You have to be careful and gentle with the heat gun doing this technique - the first time I tried it, the mica bits blew all over the place!
I used my oval punch to cut an orange background for the bookplate, sponged it lightly with Black Soot DI and affixed the numbers (Doodlebug 123's) in the centre. They are sort of white coloured but pick up the orange shade when glued down. Copper brads on each end, and foam tape pop up the bookplate.
I also cut out a little sign "trick or treat" from Tim's Idea-ology paper, covered it with self-adhesive acrylic, placed it behind the bookplate and underneath the raven.
Finally, I applied Black Stickles glitter to the wing portions of the raven, along with black eyelash fibres and orange glittery ribbon to the top of the tag.
The timer rang when I was applying the stickles and I hadn't covered as much as I wanted, so it probably took an actual 12 minutes to finish. Is this OK for the challenge?? I have never moved so quickly while stamping/creating!!!! LOL
So, thanks Linda for this challenge....it was fun.
