Thanksgiving Ribbon Tag

I have changed in my crafting.  Gone are the days of throwing out multiple tries on a card - now days, I just change direction.  I changed direction on this creation a BUNCH of times.
It started out as a card with a fun old die, but my die cutting base is messed up and the die is slightly bent so it slipped.  I tried again with a smaller die and it slipped.  Destined to save the image, I went with an oval but didn't have enough paper left to get a full oval so I had to cover it up with something.  I found this fun bow I had made for something else but never used.  The bow was too big and bulky for a card so this became a large tag.  It is currently tied on a bottle of wine, but I can see it tied to lots of fun things.

The image is the DRS Designs Filigree Pumpkin inked up with several colors of DOX (Distress Oxide Ink - thanks to Loll Thompson for teaching me that acronym) and DI (Distress Ink).  Then I stamped the Deco Happy Thanksgiving To You Greeting.  I scrubbed on a little extra ink around the edges to tie it in with my background.  I made the bg by stamping the Filigree pumpkin in black and sponging on lots of DOX and DI. A polka dot stencil added some additional pattern and covered up a few inky mistakes.

We had a hint of Fall in the air this week  - YAY!!!!

Hope you are enjoying Fall wherever you live - it is a wonderful time full of gorgeous colors and relief from the heat.

Hugz,

Nancy

  1. Your tag looks fabulous Nancy, well done for changing direction and not giving up, I love the rustic feel.
    My cards usually evolve as I make them, they never look anything like my original idea.
