Today we’re having some mixed media Halloween fun with our friends at Brutus Monroe. This jumbo art tag is sure to bring a smile with that silly selfie-taking mummy, and would work great to dress up any holiday gift package or goody bag. Better yet, the large size is perfect for all those home decor projects. Let’s take a closer look.

Mixed Media Spooky Selfie Halloween Tag Instructions:

Tear or cut two strips of Mixed Media Art Tape that are slightly wider than the tag. Lay the Heart Lace background stamp face up onto your work surface, and ink the stamp with Dusty Concord Distress Ink. Spritz the stamp lightly with water using a Distress Sprayer, and then press the front of the Art Tape onto the stamp. Repeat with the second piece of tape. Spray the stamp liberally with the Distress Sprayer again, and press the bottom half of the art tag onto the stamp to get up all the residual ink left on the stamp. Allow the tag and Art Tape strips to dry.

Ink the Art Tape paper with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink using an ink blending tool, and then tear the Art Tape paper into strips. Remove the backing from the Art Tape, and place the strips in random fashion across the bottom third of the tag. Go ahead and overlap and crisscross the strips in good old mummy wrap fashion, leaving gaps in spots to show the color underneath.

Stamp the mummy image above the strips of Art Tape using Raven Detail Ink. Cut two 1″ strips of patterned paper. Punch a scalloped border along the edge of one of the strips. Ink both pieces of paper with the purple Distress Ink. Adhere the scalloped border strip behind the bottom edge of the tag using XL Memory Tape runner. Adhere the second strip along the top edge of the Art Tape. Trim off the excess from the sides, as needed.
