How to make a Halloween Tag with MSD by: Aneta

Hello and happy Halloween my friends :)

Today I bring you a tag tutorial 
with Halloween as the main theme of course. 

This time the difficulty level is 2.

Here it is:

And here is a quick tutorial:

Step 1: gather your supplies.

Step 2: place your first layer of paper and a washi tape
and use some distress ink on the edges 
after gluing 

Step 3: place the second layer. 
Use Distress Tool on the edges after gluing

Step 4: continue adding layers.
Use Distress Tool on the edges.
Make a hole in the middle of your tag
for some ribbons.

Step 5: Use MSD stamps on the edges 

Step 6: ...and more stamping with MSD clear stamps.

Step 7: Paint your chip board black.
I used some black mist.

Step 8: Continue adding your embellishments.
Use 3d foam for some 3d effect.

Step 9: Now I'm adding a metal flower.
Use some strong glue for this job.
Glue Dots are just perfect!

 Step 10: Last step is adding some Halloween ribbons
and flowers on top of your tag.
