Autumn Colours at FSC

Hi Folks,

Its time for another challenge at Fashionable Stamping and this time its Shades of Autumn, and we are as usual sponsored by Cottage Crafts who will be offering the winner a €7 voucher to spend in their shop.

For my tag I  stamped  music and script stamps in Pumice Stone DI through torn masks, then distressed  the whole tag with Wild Honey. I then randomly stamped an old Anitas leaf stamp in Spiced Marmalade, Bundled Sage and Pumice (1st and 2nd impressions). The bird and grasses which are TH were stamped in Versafine Onyx Black.  The wording was done on the computer and inked with the same DIs. This was then mounted onto brown cardstock.
Do pop over to the FSC as my fellow teamies have made some fabulous creations, which will really WOW you!

Had a lovely day yesterday at Harrogate and met up with some lovely blogging pals, and also my fellow teamie Yvonne (Meggymay). Probably spent too much  - but DH did say 'Enjoy yourself' - not that I need to be told!  so all I need now is the time to play with them all.

I am entering this in:
  Allsorts - Autumn Leaves & trees
  CraftyCatz - Autumn
  Emergency Crafters - Autumn leaves
  Simply Create Too - Autumn
  Dutch Dare Card challenges - Fall is in the Air

That's it for now -Enjoy your Sunday and I hope its a crafty one.   I have new goodies to play with, so I think mine might be messy!!

Avril xx

Katina said...

Fabulous tag Avril! I've decided that a tag might be a good way for me to start getting inkier as it's not as big as a whole card. Wish I could come round to your's for a few lessons!
