Week 38 - 52 Week Mini Art Card / Tag Challenge 2019

The prompt for Week 32 is "Autumn Colours".

I started my tag by making the background using an assortment of Distress Oxide Ink, (Vintage Photo, Antique Linen, Wild Honey, Tea Dye, Spiced Marmalade and Crushed Olive).

Using a fan brush, I splattered water droplets across the surface and then blotted them with a kitchen towel, this leaves a bleached look to the area where the water droplets have been.

Using a Stampin' Up set called "Gorgeous Grunge", I added foxing marks using a splatter stamp and a Versafine Ink called "Vintage Sepia".  Using the same ink, I stamped the "Autumn Verse" at the base of the tag, this is a stamp by Sweet Poppy.

Using a Versafine Clair ink called "Chianti", I stamped the Lavinia Stamps Vine around the top and the right hand edge.

I stamped the basket in a Versafine Clair ink called "Shady Lane".  The basket, the pumpkins in the basket and the acorns in the border are all part of a Papertrey Ink stamp set, I'm not sure what the set is called, but it is  the "Tag-its #7" set.

I stamped the pumpkins, I used coloured pencil to give them colour, cut them out and adhered them to look as if they are in the basket.
