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.)
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!
