Haunted House Tag

This is quite a combo of products from the various groups I associate with.  It's just an example of how things get all mixed together in my craft room.


This tag was published in the October issue of the free on-line magazine, Enchanting Creations published by the Flying Unicorn.  As a Creative Product Artist for the Flying Unicorn, I worked with the Echo Park Apothecary Emporium papers to make my tag.  The reverse side of the beige is orange and can be seen peeking through the windows as light through the cobwebs.  I created my own tag with the white paper from this line.  The word strip also is Apothecary Emporium, all from the Flying Unicorn on-line store.
A gentle reminder that the 13% off sale is good through the end of the month.  The code is on my sidebar.


I used my Martha Stewart punch for the fence and punched it on black glossy cardstock that was packaging.



The lamp post and house are both from Tim Holtz on grungepaper.  I attempted the drunken scotsman technique on the lamp post (melt the embossing powder until it bubbles).  I embossed the bottom part of the house with Tim's brick texture fade. Inks are Ranger Distress.   This grungepaper house is one of the embellishments in the Bella Creations October Embellishment Kit.


The stamps on the tag and botltecap are both from Red Lead Paperworks in St. Louis.

Love it, Helene! For some reason this reminds me of the nursery rhyme(which has British & Scottish history behind it);
There was a crooked man and he walked a crooked mile, He found a crooked sixpence upon a crooked stile.
He bought a crooked cat, which caught a crooked mouse. And they all lived together in a little crooked house.
Cool embossing on the lamp post~
