Artful Times No 16 Brown, orange and white

As usual I made a tag or two, but ended up not liking them very much. So, I decided to put one in my Autumn journal. The paper is wallpaper lining paper, and ripped on the side edges. I coloured them in a mixture of distress stains and inks. Some are stenciled with a spray ink, and others with distress. This one is just coloured and sprayed. The tag is embossed with leaves, and an ink rubbed lightly on top. The leaves are also embossed and coloured with distress inks.
I stamped the images with Adirondack and Brilliance inks.
If you click onto the picture, you can read the verse.

This is the other 'didn't like tags, but put it in for the records sake. My scanner is bouncing the light from the inks, so it is much brighter in reality.

I like both these tags Wendy and the journal pages are beautiful. Love the verse too, and the colours. I do like the way you use your stamps, making some images softer than others. It gives a very artistic effect and adds so much to the design.

What a clever way of using those lovely tags. They look even better with the superb background to them. Why are we always so hard on ourselves?!! Be confident hun, you are a great crafter. Hugs, Buttons x
