Today I made a fun tag using one of my favorite techniques. The glue crackle technique. I know this technique has been around awhile, bit I learned about this when I first started art journaling.
The white tag is about 6 1/4 inch tall. I first painted a black base coat on the tag. After it dried I put a generous amount of Elmer's white glue on the tag. With a paint brush I brushed the glue along the whole tag. Then while the glue is still wet I put some orange craft paint on the tag. Again I took the same paint brush and brushed the paint with the glue. To give the tag a head start in drying time. I turned on the heat gun to the tag, just til you see some cracks forming. then set to dry.
As you can see you can get some great cool looking cracks. I didn't want to cover all that up. you can see there is an Hand an E in the cracks. lol
On white cardstock I stamped with Black Versafine ink pad stamped the Wicked Witch with broom, The spiked fence and "the witching hour" stamps. Embossed it the the Ultra High Gloss Embossing powder. I colored the face of the witch with green water color. I took the black soot distress ink pad and a water brush and painted the fence black to take out the white cardstock. did the same for the witching hour.
I took the bird claw die cut that I had and used the Clear embossing pad and black UTEE and did a few layers of the UTEE then stamped with the clear embossing pad the tree writing collage background stamp. I used the claw as a tree.Attached the tree with Miracle tape. Then I used glossy accents on both ends of the fence. The with I used foam tape to put it on the fence. In the upper right corner I had a bat punch that was in my stash. Put Miracle tape in the body and folded the wings in to make it look like it was flying. The witching hour underneath the bat.both attached with miracle tape
