Yet another Halloween Tag!

I thought I'd finished with Halloween for this year, but the latest prompt from Tag Tuesday: Autumn and/or Halloween led to me making one final themed tag.  I am also entering this into the That's Crafty fortnightly challenge 'Get Your Spook On'.
I started by adding the top layer of a paper towel mop up sheet to a #8 manilla tag.  This sheet was from my card with the bleeding tissue paper background (see HERE).  This was then sealed, dried and trimmed as usual.
I used the three largest 'claw mark' dies from the set of 7 designed by Tim Holtz for Sizzix (66283) to cut through the tag.
This was then glued to a second #8 manilla tag which had been given a coat of black gesso.
I then added two quotes from the Small Talk Occasions stickers by Tim Holtz which seemed to fit.
As a final touch one of the Paper Doll Ancestors from Tim Holtz was added, the whole tag re sealed with Distress Collage Medium and everything was dried thoroughly.  The image was then tinted using a Faber Castell Big Brush Marker in Sanguine; all round the claw marks, the edges of the tag, the quotes and around the image had shading added using both Sanguine and Terracotta; blended out with my fingers and a cotton bud (Q Tip).
