Something Wicked This Way Comes!

Awesome witchy project from BlogStar Tobi Crawford today! And be sure to check out the other designers offerings at the end of the post! You’ll be hauntingly glad you did!!


Hi there! It’s Tobi Crawford here with a spooky Halloween tag and a little trick that’ll be just between us!! Here’s the final product:

I teach a lot of tag classes and I think the most common question I get is “How do you get your tags flat once you’ve done techniques on it?” There’s two ways to answer this and one is, if you let your tag dry naturally it will most likely flatten out… But most of us do something to our project (like mist it, or spray with water) and then we’ll dry it with a heat tool and it will look like this:

So from here you can roll it over your finger (like you’re flattening a dollar bill), put it in a heavy book, or do what I do:

Use a flat iron! This is an older iron (I upgraded to a good model) so this is my CRAFT flat iron! It works well on most mediums except embossing powders. (They will melt!!!)

A lovely flat tag ready to decorate. It’s a beautiful thing.

I used a cling stamp called Mirror Mirror and stamped in deep, rich, Brilliance Pigment ink. This stamp is a great size for tag, isn’t it? All I had to do was add the cool sentiment, Witching You to a piece of gesso’d book paper.

Thanks for joining me today and have a Happy Halloween!! – Tobi!
