Autumn Tag


I'm entering my tag into two challenges this week.  PanPastelUK are asking for autumn/fall, so I've chosen to use the autumn colours and Simon Says Stamp are wanting to see hexagons, chevrons or neon, so I've used hexagons.  

The background is antiqued bronze, mustard seed and wild honey distressed stain.  The shimmer is from the antiqued bronze metallic stain.  I stamped the Stampotique images in perfect medium and coloured them with orange extra dark (280.1) pan pastel.  I used the Crafters Workshop hexagon stencil with red iron oxide extra dark (380.1) pan pastel around the edges.  I used my new rock candy stickles to brush over the dragonfly and bottom left corner and added 3 pearls to the right.  I added an autumn array of fibres to finish.
