Fall Tag

Hi and welcome to my blog! I am so glad to be having cooler weather and seeing some color on the trees now. I want to show you a Fall tag I made using several of Tim Holtz's techniques. You can see them by clicking here.

First I used some of Tim Holtz's rub ons on my card -- a script and some swirls.
Then I patted Faded Jeans, Seedless Preserves and Tea Dye Distress inks on my craft pad, spritzed them with water and drug my tag through the inks to make my background. I sponged some Gathered Twigs Distress inks around the tag for more of a distressed look.

I stamped the pumpkin stack, by Sparkle N Sprinkle, onto watercolor paper and colored the pumpkins using Distress markers and my water pen. The image was fussy cut and pop dotted to the tag. I added leaf brads and sequins for embellishment.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great day!
