Halloween is right around the corner! Okay, maybe it is still over a month away, but crafting should come early. Whether this is for a party or just fun treat bags these Halloween tags; would be the interest of any ghoul.

Materials used:
-Tombow Dual brush pens
-Optional Halloween craft stamps [ I only used stamps on 2/4 of the tags]
-Paper tags
-String or ribbon to attach tags to bag or other items
-Aquastroke brush [this is optional, a small brush and a cup of water also works]

Tombow Dual Brush Pen Swatches:

Tombow Swatches Halloween 2018


Trick or Treat

1- Take a stamp of your choosing ( I chose a spooky hand). Color the side of the stamp that will go face down on the tag. [For this step I chose the color #195]
2- Once you have noticeable pigment on your stamp gently flip the stamp onto the tag, closest to the bottom.
3- Press down on the back of the stamp. Rotate between pressing on the center of the stamp to the edges.
4- Next, peel the stamp starting from a corner off of the tag.
5- If your stamp didn’t come out clean, fit the linework with the fine tip of your Tombow pen. Or use a brush and water to spread your pigment.
6- Write a Halloween saying above your newly stamped mark. [I chose “Trick or Treat”]

2- Once you have noticeable pigment on your stamp gently flip the stamp onto the tag.
3- Press down on the back of the stamp. Rotate between pressing on the center of the stamp to the edges.
4- Next use #676 to color a few lines under the stamp.
5- Then take a slightly damp brush to spread the pigment down to the bottom of the tag. Next use water to flow the color to the top of the tag. [You should end up with a gradient light to dark]
6- Next, peel the stamp starting from a corner off of the tag.
