updated 8/18/16 to add completed tags
 

This technique makes the tags look so dimensional, but they are very flat and smooth, perfect for stamping and paper piecing.  I used the Texana stamps released last year as well as the treat bag released this year.

The spider is paper pieced and the mini spider is used as a shadow by stamping and coloring it  black.  I also stamped the treat bag on the card and then paper pieced the colored bag.

The crayons on top of the gesso on the tag made a very colorful background.  Various stencils were used to remove color and add backgrounds.
