Halloween Bottle Tags

     Happy few days before Halloween! I found these Printable Vintage Halloween Labels for the October Mixed Media Challenge that I host at, and used them on this set of tags, made from die cuts done with my Cricut Expression (October 31st Cartridge), and Emerald Creek Embossing Powders.


     I recently found some old circle reinforcement stickers that were so old they had lost all of their stickiness, so I glued them onto tags, also cut with my Cricut Expression, and covered them with Prima Marketing Black Gesso. After the gesso dried, I embossed each tag with different embossing powders, and then two coats of Stickles covering 3/4 of each tag, to resemble liquid in a bottle. 

     The pumpkin tag was first embossed with Ancient Amber Baked Texture, also used on the label, and the liquid done with Orange Peel Stickles.The pumpkin and edges of the tag, were embossed with Burnt Copper Leaves EP. Then I backed the pumpkin with black cardstock coated with Stickles (Orange Peel). The smaller pumpkins on the label were done with the Tim Holtz Mini Pumpkins Stencil using Ancient Amber Baked Texture

     Then I added bits of small copper pieces to the sides of the label with Prima Marketing Soft Matte Gel. Once dry, I went over it with Ancient Amber, adding a strand of beads to the bottom. 

     The creepy spider and snakes tag was embossed with Hammered Metal EP, and the liquid done with Stickles (Lime Peel). Around the edges of the label, I used Winter's Mistake EP.

     The spiderwebs were coated with Prima Marketing White Gesso, and the spider and rest of the die cuts, with Prima Marketing Black Gesso. After drying, I used Soft Fallen Snow EP on the spider webs, and Rocky Road Baked Texture on the spider. To make the spider darker, I added Onyx Frost EP on top, and backed the belly with black cardstock embossed with Mirror Platinum EP, finished with a dot of red bling. 

     The poison tag, which is my favorite, was coated with Oil Rubbed Bronze EP, and the liquid done with Stickles (Golden Rod). Then I used Burnt Copper Leaves EP around the edges of the label and tag. 

     The lock was embossed with Charred Gold EP, and backed with black cardstock. 

     Then I strung some Tim Holtz copper chain through the lock, and wound it around the key that I popped up. The key was embossed with Dirty Sand Baked Texture, and finished with some black blinged out eyes. 

     Finally, the witch tag, was embossed with Charred Gold EP, and the liquid done with Stickles (Lavender). Around the label, I used Chunky Rust Baked Texture, adding a strand of beads across it.   

     The cauldron was made the same way as the spider, with a coat of Rocky Road Baked Texture, followed with Onyx Frost EP, and backed with black cardstock coated with Mirror Platinum EP. Then I filled it with a hot glue gun, added some drips to the sides, and spoon, and colored it with Alcohol Inks. Finally, I used a cotton ball to create steam on top!

     Thanks for stopping by, and have a spooktacular Halloween!
