The Play Date Cafe challenge # 154

Happy 3rd Anniversary to The Play Date Cafe!!  I just stumbled across this Blog recently and I want to start participating in more challenges so here's my chance! They are having a great celebration so hop on over!!!

Here's the inspiration photo:

This week's suggested colors
are great for Halloween
and all the beautiful autumn inspiration around us . . .
Flame ... Grape ... Mulberry

So here's the tag I made today:
I love the limited edition Distress Inks that Tim Holtz
came out with last year. Ripe Persimmon, Gathered Twigs
and Seedless Preserves. Great colors for this challenge.

I heat embossed the "JS" with Ripe Persimmon and colored up my
tag really well. Then you iron off the embossed image onto
newsprint. It's an awesome technique that Tim taught in his
Creative Chemistry 101. It really makes the lighter color pop!
I finished it off with some orange twine, a little tag from Paper-
trey Ink. That about does it everyone. It's been fun. Hope to see you again!!
