Visible Image Stamps, Distress Inks, Wow embossing powders and Indigo Blu Gilding Flakes, on a tag.

Hello again,

It's Friday, and my turn to share with you, a tag I created using

I have taken my inspiration, from the beautiful colours of Autumn, as the leaves change from green to gold, they look so magical.

Using Distress inks I coloured a manilla tag, then stamped all over with the Crackled Background, in a slightly darker colour.
Next I stamped with the Retro Dots Background, and versamark, then sprinkled different colours of embossing powder over it and heat set.

I then used one of my favorite Visible Image stamps, the fab and very versatile Grunge Flourish and versamark, heat embossing with gold powder.

I stamped the gorgeous Butterfly three times with Indigo Blu flitter glue, onto black cardstock, then used gilding flakes to give that fab Autumnal colour, with black stickles on the body, 
(everything I create has to have stickles somewhere, lol !!!)

Last but not least, the sentiment, which I thought was quite apt, is from the Chandelier set, heat embossed in gold, again onto black cardstock.

 There is free p & p for the whole of this month on all orders at Visible Image,
and stamps to suit all tastes.

The Challenge is still running, this months theme is 'The Colours of Autumn', with a chance to win £20 on new stamps, and there are some fab New Designs, including a great 'Ripped Fishnet', 'Father Christmas' and 'Jack the Snowman', do pop over and look at the DT inspiration and of course enter.
