TH Zombie Halloween Tag

I put a lot of effort & detail into this Tim Holtz Zombie Halloween Tag. Thank goodness there were picture directions to help in assembling. Do you like the fright?

Used manilla folder for base of Tag. Used TH Tag die. Covered Tag base with Halloween pattern scrapbbok paper. Distressed the edges of the Tag using TH sander & TH Distress Ink. Used TH Zombie die set using TH core'dinations cardstock. There are quite a few pieces to the Zombie. Only change I did in assembling was to put the hair on later in the assembly process so it lines up better with the layers underneath. Inked the edges using TH Distress Ink. Popped the Zombi up for 3D effect using foam adhesive.Stamped sentiment. Cut sentiment out using TH die. Attached the sentiment using TH stapler. Inked the ribbon with TH Distress Ink. Attached ribbon to Tag.
