Halloween Tag Invitations

Hi all! Are you all ready for Halloween?

I made some fun Halloween invitation using tags. 
I learned this technique from Tim Holtz and was curious to see if it worked with Shimmerz paints. It did! 
I sprayed some colors down on my craft mat and laid my blank tag, face first, down in the paint. 
Then, I dried with my heat gun.  
I then, took my tag and slapped it, face down again, down in the paint a couple of times...drying with my heat gun again afterwards. (that will give you layers of colors) 

I then used my Tim Holtz Halloween stamps to create these fun images.

Below is the same tag, but just at a different angle, catching the light. See how shimmery and cool it looks! 

I then stamped an RSVP message on the back. Fill out the info and voila! Fun Halloween invitations!

Hope you guys have enjoyed!
