I will be sharing today's Halloween make on Leigh's page...Day 1


So far I have shared the following pages of my Halloween scrapbook:

The October image for the Progressive Freebie Challenge at
is an image from
from Polkadoodles

I have used the image to make another page for my scrapbook, printing it, adding colour with Copic markers and cutting it out. I used a paper from the set as a base.

I then added two tags each using a 'chalkboard' sentiment from the set too.

The technique on this first tag is Blended Distress Stamping.

  1. Take a large background stamp and ink it with five different Distress Inks (I actually used peacock feathers, salty ocean, dusty concord, picked raspberry and victorian velvet - they seem to have merged into one!
  2. Stamp tag and heat set.
  3. Blend two different Distress Inks into the background with a blending tool. I used brushed corduroy and wild honey.
  4. Add Distress ink around the edge (seedless preserves in this case)

The technique on the second tag is a blended background

  1. Choose 5 colours of Distress Ink pads.
  2. Starting with the lightest shade, load blending tool patting it firmly into the ink pad. Drag the ink onto the tagfrom the craft sheet surface in circular motions.
  3. After completing the background, spray water into your cupped hand and flick the water onto the tag with a sudden opening of the fingers.
  4. Add Distress around the edges.

I will link this page to the Outlawz Challenge.
I will also link it to the Polkadoodles AG Challenge Wk 41
