September Challenge for the Roses


     Good Morning!  I must admit that this creation just happened this morning.  Since I have been in frantic mode lately, I looked at the date for this challenge that was posted on the Rose's web site, and all I saw was the 30th.  What I neglected to realize was that the 30th is a Friday, and we do the Rose's Challenge on the last Sunday of the month.  My bad!

     This month Betty Rose was in charge of choosing what we had to create.  She chose for us to use ribbon in some way.  I was able to combine my creation with a challenge over at Stamp TV, where we had to case a member of the design team.  This time it was Deb Felts and here is the link to what I cased.  http://stamptv.ning.com/photo/seasonstags-1?context=user .  I hope she is not insulted by my attempt.

     Since Friday was the first day of Fall, I decided to do just one of Debs season tags.  Her tags are just gorgeous!!!!

     I started with a large tag and using all stamps from Gina K. Designs, started to make my scene.  The stamp sets used are Farm Life and The Giving Tree, by Theresa Momber.  I also used a set designed by Gina called Elegant Elements.  Coloring was done with a combo of colored pencils and Copics.  Sponging was achieved with Versa Magic and Memento inks.  My beautiful fall ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon, and is topped with a textured button tied with twine.
