Day 19 of the 31 Days Of Halloween - End Of Days mixed media tag.





The figure is from the Dali plate
The Skull Tower and the October Crow Alphabet is from the Halloween 3 plate 

Welcome back to day 19 of the 31 Days Of Halloween Blog hop hosted by Smeared And Smudged.All the details of the hop can be found in our side bar.
Mark here and I'm sharing another Mixed Media Tag produced by Tando-Creative and for this tag all my stamping has been done with Decoart acrylic paints
As some of you know I love Halloween and I really wanted to use this Dali image as the main focus for the tag. It put me in mind of a tortured soul. She was stamped with black acrylic paint and colour was added using some translucent acrylic paint. The skull tower was stamped in grey paint so it would fade into the background, it was also coloured with a a wash of quin gold.The whole tag was sealed with some faux finish medium and then more washes were added to create the back ground colours. A little black ink was swiped around the edge of the tag and finally given two coats of clear embossing powder.
The eyelet was added and a couple of bits of chain were added using some brads.

Thanks for stopping by.head back tomorrow to see what else we have in store for the 31 days of halloween.
