October Challenge at Creative Embellishments

New month, new challenge at Creative Embellishments, yay!!  It's October and of course the challenge is all about pumpkins, fall colors and Halloween and there's a twist to use metal on your project.  Our challenges are great because there's a $50 gift certificate awarded to one lucky person and the winner is selected randomly so everyone has an equal chance to win!  You can always find our challenge on the Creative Embellishments' blog, it's the first post listed.

This is the inspiration photo for October, don't you just love it?


 I am totally inspired by the fun Halloween look of the photo, so I created two Halloween tags.
 

For this first tag, I created a fun background by misting my tags with lots of spooky colors, black, green, purple and some gold to highlight the background. I painted the wood veneer pumpkins  with Silks.

The fussy cut pumpkin and raven along with the All Hallow's Eve tag are from Graphic 45's October Time to Flourish papers and tags. 

I used my very favorite Halloween skeleton chipboard piece and that 's Mr. Bones, as I affectionately call him!

 I also use a way cool giant spider from the Bugs set that I heat embossed with aged black embossing enamel.


Instead of my usual bow at the top of the tag, I decided to use a cool metal flair button from Creative Embellishments' Boo Flair Set and that also meets the metal twist this month!



I used the spooky Scarecrow Set on this tag.  I painted the body but used design paper for the scarecrow's clothing.  Watch out for black cat hiding in the flowers!  
 

For the metal twist, I used a Graphic 45 Staples Metal Clock Key.



 Love the crows hanging out!
