My Cards and Tags: Halloween Tags using Tim Holtz's Bat Crazy Die

"Spooky" is this week's theme for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.  Here are three bat tags I created:

I started by covering some Strathmore Mixed Media tags with Washi tape.  The tags were cut using Reverse Confetti's Square Window Tag dies.  

Next I heat-embossed some Dina Wakley circles, cut them out and watercolored them.

I set the circles on my tags to get a rough idea of where they'd be, then I toned down the Washi background with some paint.  I also outlined the edges with black paint.

Next I glued the circles to my tags.

All that was left to do was cut some bats and add them to the tags.  I stamped some sentiments and added those as well.

Here are the supplies I used that you can find at Simon Says Stamp:
