Joan's Challenge***


Good morning everyone! This tag/card was made for Joan Fricker's Challenge # 11.
Check out all the details HERE***
I used a manila tag and added dried marigold and straw with water to the whole tag. I dried it and then used Tim Holtz stamps and Autumn Leaves stamps to add the designs.
The sentiment is from Hero Arts.
The flower was white and I dipped it in the same inks that I did the tag with and let it dry.
I also used Walnut stain and Faded Jeans around the edges of the tag. I had a piece of terra cotta card stock and the designer paper in my bit bin so decided to turn it into a birthday card for my niece.
Enjoy and have a fabulous day***
