Happy Halloween, or Blessed Samhain to everyone.
Been playing with tags this weekend, inspired partly by my Tim Holtz stamps ( I’ll post those later), partly by the tags I saw on BetteK’s blog, Tattered Rocks, and partly by what I discovered I could do with my Silhouette cutting machine.
The thing is, this tag uses one stamp- the cobwebs.That comes from a background set by Tanda Stamps- Background Set No.2.
Everything else, the witch, bats, negative webs and Biohazard sign are masks cut from acetate on my Silhouette, using ‘Dingbat’ True-type fonts.You know when you get one of those ‘lightbulb’ moments, and think ‘ I wonder if….’. Seeing the flourish type masks that Tim uses on some of his tags, and remembering that I had some fonts with flourishes in I thought it was worth a try. As soon as I realised it would work, I was off hunting down more Dingbat fonts.
Now I’ve got all sorts- Clocks, keys, Halloween,Birds- you name it, theres a font containing it. Good sites are: Dafont, 1001 fonts, Urbanfonts, Dingbat depot, and Pickafont.
There are probably loads more, but these sites are definitely ok, as far as spyware/malware are concerned.
I almost never got round to making any tags, I got so carried away cutting masks, lol.
