Friday Sketchers and Autumn tags


Day off today so made some tags for a swap I am in. The theme is Autumn. The stamps are from a plate by Queens Dresser Drawers. I inked up the front of the tags using Distress Inks in Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade, making sure I had masked the leaf image. I then watercoloured the leaf using a mix of Fired Brick and Mustard Seed. The reverse of the tags was coloured with Peeled Paint Distress Ink.

Also managed to get this week's challenge from Friday Sketchers done. The papers are from Ambrosia by Basic Grey and the stamp is Whiff of Joy Charlotte and Charlie Winter Collection. I coloured the image using Derwent Inktense pencils and matted the image on some black SU cardstock. The buttons were from my stash.
