13 Days of Halloween, Day 1

Hello Everyone!

Hope all is well. I have a Halloween tag for you today. I haven't really been a "Halloween" type of person but ever since I been following Simply Betty Stamps I'm diggin' the theme. Her stamps are way too cute which I been buying from time to time but haven't had the time to color or after seeing others show case them I get a little intimidated LOL but we all have to start somewhere so I'm starting to use my SBS digi stamps which until recently I was just hoarding them in my computer. Anyway check out there you'll be able to participate on SBS 13 days of Halloween. The first challenge is:

 Trick or Treat for a Tot or anything for a child. 

Challenge Guidelines: 
1. Make anything suitable for a Child, a treat bag, a page layout, card, anything as long as it is Halloween and for a child!
2. There must be at least 6 entries for the prize.
3. Winner will be determined by popular vote by the DT
4. Must be a new project never posted on any online sites

I have created a tag for my daughter Jade. I'm going to tie it to her Halloween candy bucket (some call it "Halloween pail") when she takes it to school on Halloween, when we take her out trick-or-treating and then she can just keep in her room as decoration.

For this tag I used S.B.S.: Pumpkin Mickey Hat Betty Digi
the back just has her first name. 
The tag was cut with my Cricut
 The papers are from a punch pad by Martha Stewart
The sentiment I just typed and printed it out
The sheer ribbon is from the Dollar Tree
And I used a spellbinders die.

I'm still working on my "highlights" and or 
lighting/shading technique with markers
but slowly getting there... 
by observing the lovely crafters at SBS and other groups of course

Here is a close up of the digi image. 
I used Copic markers to color her face, body and costume 
BUT I used Spetrum Noirs to color in her hair. 
I tried to go lightly with the Stikles on the Mickey hat...

My daughter loves her tag hope you like it.
