I popped my digi up with foam tape. She is colored with Inktense Water Color pencils. I added some bling to her glasses and put Crystal 3D Lacquer on the lenses to make it look glassy. I did the same thing to two of the potion bottles and the fly's wings.
Stamps used: Studio 490 Art Gone Postal set (mesh background although not very visible) and Art Rules (Head); Tim Holtz wood mounted collage stamp (I don't know what it is called) and sentiment set (trick or treat), Studio 112 Clear mini stamps (bottle, frog, fly)
I did not use the whole collage stamp. I just want the 13 and the crows and some background. I did not get enough ink on the crows evidently because they don't show up at all.
I used a Tim Holtz charm fragment and put embossing glitter on the back of it. I then stamped a 31 using Black StazOn. I went over it with black soot distress marker because it just wasn't dark enough. I pinned it to the ribbon using a trinket pin from Tim Holtz.
It is being entered into the following challenge:

My next tag uses the freebie from Sherry Balding found Here. She is called Nellies Pumpkin and is colored again with Inktense pencils. The challenge at My Besties Challenge blog is Bling it up. My foundation is still done using just the distress inks and spray. I didn't use so many background stamps though. I gave this one a different twist, hand-drawing a spiderweb then using Inkssentials Enamel Accents to make it pop. Here it is:
The spider is made using a button and jute twine. I threaded the twine through the buttons holes so they wouldn't show. I then hotglued the other legs onto the back. His eyes are made with the Inkssentials Enamel Accents. I think he's cute for a spider. I added a fly from the above stamp set. The bat is a freebie over at Scribbles Designs found Here. I colored him with Wink of Stella Glitter Pens. I liked the 31 on the first tag, so added it here doing the same technique. This time though I put it on the tag with a Tim Holtz memo pin. I also added a small piece of Tim Holtz Tissue Tape and part of a bling swirl from Want 2 Scrap (I cut it in half). A Tim Holtz reinforcer in on the hole of the tag. I also used stickles for extra bling.
I used Tim Holtz crinkle ribbon on both tags, inking them up with distress stains on the top tag and inks sprayed with water on the second tag. I then crinkled them into balls and dried them with the heat tool. I don't think they turned out too badly.
The second tag is going into the following challenge:
