 Hello everyone,

Back with my paper towel tag..

After Thursday's spraying the paper towel is dry and ready..

Needed a few more leaves and went with some green..

Added a few orangey red and even burgundy.

This towel got into a bit of a mess...but, wait..

I flipped it, now I see something..

Back to my project, I get easily side tracked,
 die cut toadstools and mushrooms..

Some yummy, sprayed pumpkins.

Into my ephemera packet that I printed and fussy cut out one day, 
to fetch a wheel barrow and some bits, that I may or may not use..
and didn't, not here anyway..better to be prepared.

Leaves are dry and tag is covered and trimmed..

For me, this is the best brown ink I have to do my edges..
it does not respond to water as fast as oxides etc..

So, three leaves on, green, burgundy and the red/orange..

the sentiment I printed..

and added the hello die cut and kept it white so it pops through the colours,
 and a twine bow..

Thank you so much for stopping by..

Stunning tag Chrissy. The white hello is just right for the vibrancy of the tag. Will I see something out of the towel soon? Go on you have too. :)

Seriously Chrissy, you are amazing, you need to do a few more like this and what a brilliant idea... you actually 'soaked' your die cuts into the kitchen paper? x

WOW!! I am in love with this tag. I love that you used the paper towel to cover the tag and use it as bg. The leaves you sprayed are just beautiful. I never would have thought to use my paper towel as a cover, fantastic idea and inspiration. Thanks for joining us at Intaas Happy Fall Y'all Challenge.
