Tag Tuesday - Banners

Happy Weekend!  I have a spooky little tag today inspired by Tag Tuesday, where Louise has challenged us to use Banners on our tags.

All of the stamps are from Oxford Impressions - I used both the Haunted and the Trick or Treat collections.  I did a little paper piecing and a little Distress Inking.  For the "Witch" banner, I actually used the letters from the Ouija board stamp, which I inked up separately with a black marker, then punched out with a teensy circle punch.  I stamped the pumpkin face over the top of a patterned paper printed pumpkin (and there's your tongue twister for the week).  A sweet little spook for my doorknob, I think. :)

Hope you can play along! We've got tons of sports to participate in this weekend, so not sure if I'll have time to craft until Monday.  Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!

Very cool Halloween tag, Jean!

I just noticed that you are from Cary, NC (just outside Raleigh?). My father grew up there on a large farm. There is an old graveyard on what used to be part of their property. I saw it for the first time the last time we went to Raleigh. There were 9 boys. My father's name was Iowa Victor Lynn.
