Oct TH Tag & Halloween 2016 Pumpkins

Took me awhile to create this Oct Tim Holtz Tag with lots of detail. Got my fingers inky. Glad I was able to finish it in time for Halloween.

Used mostly TH products. Did not have the embossing folder TH used but thought the Cuttlebug Diamond Plate gave the TH Monster a good dimension look. Did not have a TH black Distress Crayon so I used 2 of the TH Distress Crayons I did have. TH used a spider & metal sentiment that I did not have. I used a TH stamp. Added black sparkly ribbon.
