Pumpkin Tag

I used my silhouette to cut out the shape for the focal image. I stamped the image with Memento Rich Coco and I colored it with Distress Inks. I didn't like how white the background of the piece was, so I colored it with Distress Ink in Mustard Seed and inked the edges with Fired Brick. Then I added some liquid pearls. The base is a used paper towel attached to cardstock with Mod Podge. It is the paper towel I used to wipe up the Distress Inks I smooshed on my craft mat. Some of the paper towel end up looking so pretty, I save them. A tip if you are going to do this, if your paper towel is 2 ply, separate the plies before attaching to the cardstock. I did that for the back and it was much easier than the front.
The leaves are wood veneer self-adhesive paper I punched and colored with Distress Inks. I made the bow with my bow easy. The image is by Impression Obsession.
