Autumn Colors Double Sided Decoration Tag



Hello, Today I made a double sided decoration tag. It can sit up by itself or be hung on a hook.

I am using digis by Robyn's Fetish called "Ernie the Hedgehog," "Chubby Pumpkin," and " Scarecrow n Bird."

Copics used on "Scarecrow n Bird" are E50, E51, E53- skin, YR21, YR24, Y21- hair, YG03, YG93, YG95, YG97- shirt, BG000, BG01, BG05, B97- overalls and hat, E51, E53, E55, E57- shoes, Y11, Y13, Y15, Y17, C1, C3, C5, c7, C10- crow.

"Chubby Pumpkin" is paper pieced using card stocks by Recollection. The stems are colored with Copics YG03, E31, E33. The one pumpkin is popped up with foam dots.

The background I made with ink pads, stamps and and ink dabbers. I used dark blue and olive ink pads by Studio g and made a sky with clouds and grass. Next I used a Stampin Up stamp set to stamp the tree. I used Walnut Chalkj ink by Colorbox for the free trunk. Then on one tree on each side I used Memento Rust and one Cantalope for the leaves.

The ribbons are by Really Reasonable Ribbon. You can find them here http://www.reasonableribbon.com/.

The gems are by Recollections. They were clear. I colored them with Copics YR27.

The fence was made using a Martha Stewart border punch called Picket Fence. I curved the fence so that it forms an oval almost from the 2 sides. This lets the design by 3-D, plus it enables the tag to stand freely. 

The leaves I made using an EK Success maple punch. 

The sentiments are by The Paper Studio called Fall Sayings.

The papers are by Recollections- orange, light orange, pumpkin, burnt orange, yellow, kraft paper, Georgia Pacific white, grayish blue.

The 2 biggest flowers were made using using a rag tissue paper from a rose bouquet I saved. I cut stripes about 24" x 2 1/2". Then I cut along the one side a scalloped border with a pair of scissors. Do not worry about being uniform. Then I sewed with needle and thread a running stitch along the straight edge and pulled the tread to ruffle it up into a tight circle and tied the thread in a knot. Then I fluffed out the paper into a flower shape. I attached a button to the center with a Craft Glue Dot. I also used the Craft Glue Dots to attach the flowers to the card.

The smaller flower I used a strip of the paper about 16" x 1 1/2". I then folded the paper over so you had 2 layers the top shorter than the bottom. I stitched along the edge of the folded line. Then pulled into a ruffled circle like the large flower.

The die cut was made using a Spellbinders die called Labels Thirty Eight.

The leaves were punched out using an EK Success oak leaf punch. 

The sentiment is by Create with TLC. You can find it here http://icraftgifts.com/digital-creations-with-tlc.

Dragonfly


Hello, Today I am using a drawing by Jean Elford a friend in England. She mailed it to me about 9 months ago. I am finally finishing it. Thank you Jean. 

I used a wash of 99% water and 1% ink to add color as a wash with a paintbrush on the dragonfly. I did not worry about going out of the lines. I did this 2 times to get a good coat of color. 

Once completely dry. I then went over the outlines with a clear Stardust Gelly Roll Pen. I let this dry overnight as I did not want it to smear when I used my copics or added glitter to it.

 I then colored the water with copics BG0000, BG000, BG01, BG02, BG10, BG11, BG13, BG15.

I added a little color to the body of the dragonfly with Copics BG01, BG05. I also added some to the larger spots on the wings making sure I leave the wash as my lightest color..

I then added Iridescent Glitter by Recollections to the wings.

The papers used are by Recollections- teal, dark teal, Georgia Pacific- white.

The card is 5" x 6 1/2". I plan on framing this one.
