Every Artist

Hi everyone and welcome back!!!And welcome to my new followers, too.

Recently I mentioned how orange is not one of my fav colors. LOL Well I guess I might have to eat my words.You'll see in a minute!! Now I guess that means I can wear those orange pants, but I am going to limit my wearing to Halloween. Otherwise I might be mistaken as an orange Popsicle. LOL

OK let me share a quick little project I made. And it has shades of ORANGE!!!, OH MY!!! imagine that. Well after all it's fall now!! LOL

I made a tag and it started out as white CS.  Next I stamped the verse and the image and then I sponged on all of the fall colors (.See, orange is in that tag.)  Next I cut a few leaves using vellum. I sponged inks made my bow and put it all together. I photographed it and was writing this post and I looked at those leaves and decided they needed something. Well you know what that means, time to add something to finish those leaves off. I got out some glitter and defined the veins and it was just what was needed. You be the judge.

Here is the same tag and the only thing I did was to glitter the veins on the leaves.

Those leaves look like leaves, now. 

Here are the items I used:
inks: Memento- Cantaloupe, Desert Sand, New Sprout, Morocco, Olive Grove, Peanut Brittle, - Distressed Inks - Fired Brick
CS: White, Vellum
Spellbinders Dies: S4-158 Sunflower Set Two & S4-157 Sunflowers Set One (leaf from each set)
Stamps: Unity - Imagine It ( DD-706)
Sponge Dauber
Glue pen
Glitter - Sparkle N Sprinkle  Parisian Mist glitter - G1037
Ribbon ( from my stash)
Bow Making tool - Craft-Dee BowZ

Well thanks a lot for stopping in today.Have a great week!!

Really lovely tag, Barbara. I like the tag on its original form but the glitter veins make the leaves pop out even more. Truly gorgeous creation.

Hi, Barbara! HOW GORGEOUS! This makes me want to color something "orange", too! Love the techniques, the pretty sentiment, and the beautiful tree. The leaf veins surely look different with the pretty glitter! Lovely tag, hugs, de

Wow - what a difference a little glitter makes! Love that sentiment too. Gorgeous fall colors (especially the orange!)
