A new month of challenges at Make My Monday

 Good morning all you dedicated crafters welcome to a new month of challenges at Make My Monday
Caz has set the theme for the month which is all things AUTUMNAL beginning with a resist technique.
Pop across to the MMM blog to see Caz's tutorial.
I haven't mastered how to do a link yet: ( shame on me ) you know the one where you just click "here" I get it wrong every time I try... HELP!

This is my easy, uncomplicated card... you've no idea how many different attempts I had at this challenge trying different techniques... whew! Ended with this ... nice and easy.

My card looks a little different to the photograph on the MMM blog cos Included more bits and pieces to add  interest.

 Products and Method
Background stamp from Elusive Images (now Chocolate Baroque) Grungy Brocade set. Stamped onto tag with PM and embossed with white EP. also stamped onto white card stock with tea dye, edges coloured slightly with wild honey

Oak leaves:  can't remember where I got them.  Made in the same way as the tag,  then cut out.
 Buff coloured luggage tag.

 Distress Inks: Wild Honey, Mustard Seed, Shabby Shutters and Tea Dye. blended together over embossed tag then the whole thing buffed to remove any colour from embossed areas

 Perfect Medium

Adirondack: :Meadow and Sunset Orange. More blending to add some brightness

Debbi Moore: white embossing powder.
Bits and bobs from stash.

 Hope you enjoy this new month of challenges. Looking forward to visiting all your blogs to see your wonderful creations... cos I know they'll all be great artistic masterpieces  :o)

I've also entered into these challenges.    Fall Foliage  Photo Challenge

 take care
