Halloween Blog Hop

Halloween, great time for a Blog Hop at Fitztown.  I had lots of fun making this tag with this cute little witch from the Halloween collection at Fitztown

I started my tag by covering it with some Halloween paper I had in my stash that was covered in velvet bats, then I started layering my tag with a tombstone, die cut RIP letters, fence and moon. 

I coloured my image with Copic Markers then added some purple glitter to give her some sparkle. To complete my tag I added the date, a black cat,bats and some coordinating ribbon. 

I hope you will join us at the Hop.
