Halloween

I think I should have called this tag 'I'm raven mad' which is how I feel at the moment! My dear Mum is losing her battle with cancer, so please dear tag mates forgive me this week if I don't comment on your beautiful works of art, I really think they are all brilliant but my time is limited. I have had a half hour therapy making this tag, so not as laden with emellishments as I would like but the best I can do.

I embossed the background with the Halloween folder and brushed purple and black ink over it, while leaving the circle for the moon out. Then I sprayed with twilight blue cosmic shimmer ink and coloured the moon with ripe persimmon. The bird on the branch is a die cut and the happy Halloween and bat are stamps by Tim H. The gothic die cut shape on the bottom is black flock and I stuck it over some wrapping ribbon which echoes the shimmer from the cosmic spray, I hope it shows up. 
That's all I can manage for now dear friends, take care. x

  12. Well done you for taking part. Keep your chin up - I know how you must be feeling; at least you'll have time and a chance to talk to your Mum - I lost mine suddenly this year and it was a shock and there's so much I wanted to say and do. xxx
