Thanks Tag

Hi Everyone!

I hope you are having a good day. I can't believe it is already November. It doesn't even feel like November here. It has been feeling a lot like Spring along with the rain too! I want to show you a Fall tag I made using some fun techniques. For the background I stamped a basket weave background stamp using tan acrylic paint. After it dried I applied Walnut Distress stain over it. Next I spritzed some water over it to lighten the center to give it a more distressed look. I also did a little stamping on the edges of the tag.

I wanted to use gold foil around the edges of my tag, but among ALL the colors of foil I had I did not have gold! LOL! So I used a glue stick on the edges and applied some gold leaf instead.

The pumpkins were stamped on watercolor paper and colored with Distress markers and a water brush. I fussy cut them to add to the tag. I swiped colors of  Distress inks on my craft pad, spritzed with water and swiped my card stock through the inks and let it dry. I then punched out the leaves to add to the tag. I used a thick cream color embossing powder on the fancy label and stamped Thanks on it.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful and blessed day!
