Halloween tag

I picked up a fabulous set of Close to My Heart Halloween label stamps at the Stamp, Scrap & Art Tour this summer and last year I found a must-have pack of K&Co. shaker stickers at Michaels.  It's one of those things you desperately want to hoard and never let go of because they're just so darn cool but then what's the point?  I stamped the 3 images twice each, rubbed them with walnut ink, stacked them and used SU's Crystal Effects on the top layers.  Unsurprisingly, the stamped labels bled out a bit but I don't mind it too much with this tag- it just makes them look a bit older and blurrier.  I rubbed the distress inks into the ribbons and the kraft tag.

Stamps: Close to My Heart. Hampton Arts

Paper: Kraft (tag) & brown (reinforcement circle): Stampin' Up
Ink: (Peeled Paint, Walnut Brown, Marmalade Orange): Tim Holtz, (Black Momento): Tsukineko, (Pumpkin Pie, Garden Green, Chocolate Chip): Stampin' Up

Misc: (Sticker): K&Company, (Rub-ons): Creative Imaginations

Pumpkin Spice: Brown & Green
The Stamping Boutique: Halloween 
The Corrosive Challenge: Cute and Creepy
Ribbon Carousel: Halloween
The Kraft Journal: Sketch: I went VERY loose on this but the circle and the pointed piece are the Elixir and Potion pieces and the bottle and Owl Cream pieces make up the rectangle.
