My first…

Penny Black stamp was actually this ‘Bare Tree’ one, a recent buy that I’ve had my eye for a while and wanted an excuse to use it. Thought I would use it to have a go at the exciting first challenge from the new Penny Black Saturday Challenge. Thanks guys for an excuse to use the stamp 🙂

The Challenge over at Tag You’re It this week is a fab colour scheme of Aubergine (eggplant), Olive and Ivory. What a great colour combo. Hope you like what I’ve done, it was fun to do.

So this tag was put together by stamping the image in aubergine onto white paper coloured with an olive ink pad. The corners were curled with a knitting needle and then the image was layered onto aubergine-textured card. The corners of this layer were also curled. This was then in turn layered onto an olive, textured card stock tag and the edges coloured with a dark olive ink pad. Aubergine and ivory buttons and embroidery thread were used to embellish the tag. An aubergine-coloured eyelet and some ivory, aubergine and olive ribbons and rickrack finishes the tag off.
