Something Wicked

October brings out the Halloween in us. Here is a Halloween tag created for a few challenges. City Crafter has a color challenge using yellow, orange and green. Frilly and Funkie wants to see a different kind of tag with a Halloween or autumn theme. The Octopode Factory is looking for lime, orange, and yellow. Inspiration Journal wants to see some spooktacular decor.
To make my tag, I started with a large manila tag and die cut it using pumpkin Jack from Sizzix. I then used a splatter technique to add the yellow, orange, and green paint splatters (and some purple). The broom is a Northwoods stamp. The raven is from the Octopode factory. The sentiment is from Quietfire. This tag will be hanging on my door to greet all the little trick-or-treaters on Halloween this year.
