An Inky Autumn

Hi everyone and welcome to my new followers. I really appreciate that you take the time to stop by and leave such lovely comments. I've been working on a couple of projects for the couple of days (including my Tim tag for this month) and for some reason they have taken ages to evolve. So this morning I set myself a challenge to use the pile of neutral embellies sat on the corner of the craft mat to make a tag by lunchtime.


It did start off neutral, promise! Lots of creams/browns and oodles of texture.


Then I went to town with my Jenni Bowlin inks - bottles of gorgeousness made from H2O and reinkers:))


As well as the ribbon there is a host of deliciousness from the Funky Junkie Boutique, including lace, seam binding, jute ribbon and a die cut white corrugated cardboard butterfly (some of which came as a complimentary gift from Linda Coughlin with my orders!) As well as stamping/hand cutting the various leaves the brown paper flower was stamped and clear embossed to provide some shine and resist.

So, this is going into Hels' Sunday Stamper challenge - ribbon (mine is yellow, + green + brown!!)
and the Anything But A Card challenge - texture (oh yes, there's plenty of that:)
and of course the Frilly & Funkie Sunday Share.

Thanks again for popping by. Hope you feel inspired to get soaked in ink:)
Crafty hugs, Buttons x
