Penny Black Fall Mixed Media Tag

tag 1
 Mixed Media time again and I'm playing with Penny Black stamps to create some altered style and distressed projects in preparation for my guest design spot at Penny Black & More Challenge Blog in November.  I am overjoyed and have been digging through my (and my mom's!) PB collection and have begun to play!  The thing I love about Penny Black is the versatility - from elegant to distressed to just plain cute!  I'll be celebrating all month long with PB projects, so check back soon.  I have already started a pile-o-projects!  :)
tag 2
 I used several distress inks to create the background, then embossed a script image in gold for a dose of texture.  Next I stamped text randomly, then glued some tissue paper over parts of the tag.  I added a doily and leaf/DIY paper flower bundle from THIS tutorial.
tag 3
 I stamped the butterfly in Walnut Ink and Aged Mahogany onto kraft paper and added some white shading with a Prismacolor pencil.  I made a loopy bow from hand dyed silk ribbon.  And didn't feel like the tag was complete until I added the beautiful hymn sentiment (Verve).  I just love adding encouragement and scripture to my pieces.  <3

I'm playing along with Country View Challenges for their Add Some Texture Challenge HERE, with Frilly and Funkie for their Autumn Splendor Challenge HERE, with Penny Black Saturday Challenge Embossing HERE, and with Penny Black & More Warm Autumn Colors HERE.

Autumn, your tag is GORGEOUS! The background is beautiful on it's own, but with the bold blossom and those dark, crisp autumn leaves it's been popped up about 20 notches! I love that you've included the scripture on it...so perfect for this! Hugs!
