613 Avenue Create #189 - Anything Goes-Option Colors of Fall

Hi, My Crafty Friends!

I have been missing for a while. I have been ill, which prevented me from crafting and blogging. I am so happy to be well!  I missed the first monthly challenge at 613 Avenue Create due to my illness. For September, our Anything Goes option is to use the colors of Fall.  Here's my card, using a tag  image from KREATIVEHENDERDIGIS.

I started with a pre-cut tag I got from Tuesday Morning. I colored the ticket with Tea Dye Distress Ink. I did my best to blend some Distress Inks on the tag:  Spiced Marmelade, Fired Brick and Squeezed Lemonade.  After blending the inks, I dropped some water on the tag. I added some Washi tape from my stash and tied on some brown Baker's Twine from Martha Stewart. I adhered the ticket to a Kraft card base and added some enamel dots.

I am going to enter these challenges:  Simon Says Wednesday Challenge Blog - Anything Goes; Digi Stamps 4 Joy - Anything Goes - Option Color Challenge and Sisters of Craft - Anything Goes.

As I said earlier, I am so happy to be back crafting. I plan to blog a lot more frequently.  I actually have some cards I made earlier in the year which I did not post and plan to do so soon. Wish me luck! I hope you have a wonderful day.

Thanks for visiting!

I'm so sorry you have been ill Sheila, I am glad to hear that you are good to go now. It's not fun being ill and watching the world go by you. I am still MIA, not sure when I will be back, but am hoping soon and if not, maybe something here and there. We will see how it goes. You take care Sheila and I look forward to seeing what you have in store for us! Hugs, Brenda

    1. Thanks, Brenda. I keep working on my distress ink blending. Each time I get a bit better, but it's still not easy for me. I am enjoying my craft room again. I hope you can get back to yours soon also.
