Sunday Stampers Challenge Week 176 !

This weeks theme over on Hel's Blog is "Leaves"!

For this I have done another tag, now please forgive me but I would like to put together a little 'Tag Book' for my Art Portfolio for college! I applied for a place on an NC Art and Design full time course at the local college, not really sure if I'll get a place though because I don't really "do" drawing! So want to show off what I DO do to it's very best, if you get my meaning.......anyway....I digress.

Started with a plain white tag, stamped the leaves from Tick Tock flowers from the Artistic Stamper in clear versamark and then heat embossed them in white. I then distressed over them using, Dried Marigold , Wild Honey, Fired Brick and Forest Moss Distress inks. Gave the whole thing a wipe down with a tissue and it gave me a 'faux resisit' look. I stamped out two leaves using Archival black then just Distressed them in the above colours. The THIRD leaf is stamped using clear versamark and Copper coloured Embossing powder. I Distressed this one using Fired Brick, Dried Marigold and Wild Honey because I wanted more of a 'red' colour on this!

Just finished it off with a piece of brown ribbon. Sadly the photo of this tag does not do the colours justice at all! It's is a lovely fiery red and orange colour! Very Autumnal indeed!

Thanks for looking in,

Gorgeous Jackie!!! I really love autumn leaves (that's why my blog is called 'Leaves from my notebook' with an appropriate header picture!) And I do like the faux resist technique.

Good luck with your application.
