Tilda Tag....

Happy Weekend everyone!  We have our first Frost here this morning.  I'm looking out at the roof tops in our neighborhood and there is definitely frost there.  We are at 34 degrees and all I can say is finally!  We always wait for the first frost because whatever Maggie is allergic to in our yard goes with the frost!  Yeah....

Toady I want to share with you a tag I made for Joan's Gardens Weekly Challenge #21.



This week Joan's recipe for the challenge is as follows:

Something from Nature but not flowers - Real or handcrafted (such as twigs, corn husks etc.)
Something Punched
Something Green
A background for your focal point such as a Spellbinders Nestie

My twigs are punched and the flowers are mint green and I used a Spellbinders Medallion for the tag.   So I think I have covered all the bases!  Joan's challenges are always so much fun..... here is a link to her blog.  joanscreations.blogspot.com   She has so much going on there; you should go check it out.

My Tilda is stamped on watercolor paper and colored with Rangers Distress Inks.  She is cut out and mounted on a Medallion from Spellbinders that was cut also from Watercolor Paper and distressed with ink.  The twigs are a punch and they are colored with inks and Glimmer Mist.  the flowers are homemade with watercolor paper and the edges are tinted with Distress Inks and then twisted; all the floral area is set on some silk ribbon I sprayed with Glimmer Mist.    This little Tilda will be adorning a Holiday gift bag in the very near future!

Supplies:

Tilda Stamp
Spellbinders Die
Glimmer Mist
Twig Punch (Punch a Bunch)
Stamen (Hobby Lobby)
Silk Ribbon From My Stash
Ranger Distress Inks

I chuckled at Patty's comment - on the way to Idaho, want to stop in Cuba City WI for a great cup of coffee and fresh bread!?? ROTFL! I have to know what colors you used on Tilda's face - it's just a gorgeous tag! Forget the gift, the tag is the present!

Your colouring always looks SOOO professional. I need a class too!
Things are getting chilly here too. Once the frost hits, I'm ready to get halloween out of the way and start focussing on the holidays.
Have a great weekend--even if it's cold!

Great little tag Glenda, I agree with Patty as I would LOVE to take a class or several from you on making your wonderful flowers .. You have that added touch I love ... Tilda is so adorable perched on the edge with all those amazing flowers.

This is a gorgeous tag, Glenda! I think I am going to put myself on your gift list so I can receive such a wonderous tag, don't need a gift with this tag! Glad your weather is cooling off. Ours switches from hot to cool and back.
