My Fall Feature is doing triple time, but each challenge is so connected! Frilly and Funkie's current challenge is Fall into Fall, using the color palette of Fall, such as Brown, Orange, Olive, Rust, Cranberry, Harvest Gold. You could be the winner of a $25 gift certificate to The Funkie Junkie Boutique or receive a Winners Badge! And as luck would find it, The Funkie Junkie Boutique is also this week's sponsor of the Compendium of Curiosities 2 challenge #22, in which there is another chance to win a $25 gift certificate to this lovely boutique! This week the lovely Linda instructed us to open our books to page 57, Riveted Patchwork. Now as luck would have it, this challenge also fits in quite well with Tim's 12 Tags of 2012, September! Got to love how this worked out! Linking this up to Saturday's I Spy at Sizzix!
You know the rules, we cannot tell you how the technique is done. Buy the book! What I can tell you is this! For the leaves, I used Tim's dictionary paper and inked them up, edged with Rusty Hinge and then clear embossed. The little letters behind the filmstrip are also from the Lost and Found paper. I pushed the larger gear and time piece into Lemon Squeeze ink and then clear embossed for a little touch of gold! The start of Fall numbers were cut from chipboard using my Cargo Numbers die, inked with LS and then clear embossed. The outer tag was distressed with Rusty Hinge and then I sprinkled on gold embossing powder, which collected nicely in areas and still leaving some rust shinning through. I really liked that!
Come on and join in! It was great fun working on this tag, well except for the foil tape peeling! Thank you so much for stopping by and commenting! Have a wonderful finish to this week!
