Black & White | Happy Haunting with Lydia Evans


Hello there! Lydia here with you today and with a new video too! I may have added a little orange to this months 'Black and White' theme , but as we are nearing Halloween I thought I lil poetic licence was ok ;) 

Shakers, cards and tags, seem to be the big thing at the moment and I wanted to show you how I used this months Re-Run set 'Moonlight' to make a cute little shaker tag.


I have used the Fuse Tool to go around the large tag from Essentials: Katherine's Cutaways to create a seal, but leaving the bottom edge so I can add things in. I used the same tag and cut it out of some grey card, before adding this to the tag pocket I embossed the web from Moonlight onto it in white. I also embossed the large spider onto some heat resistant acetate and added him to the web, then added the grey tag inside the tag pocket. Once this piece was in place I added in some shaker elements before sealing up the bottom of the tag with the Fuse Tool.


For the sentiment I cut two, one orange and one black, of the In A Word: Happy Cutaway, I added the black on top of the orange one but slightly off-set it so you can still see the orange peeking through. Then added 'hunting' from the Moonlight set heat embossed in white onto some heat resistant acetate. For more details and a step-by-step I have a video .....

I really hope you liked the video and tag, I would love to know what you think. 

Thank you so much for stopping by!
