September Tag 2014 - A New Fall Dress

It's time for the September 2014 Tag over at Tim  Here's a look at Tim's tag and it is stunning. Such an interesting technique with alcohol inks this month. 

I have my tag ready to share with you. 

Fall is just about here and the Fall colors are always so gorgeous. 

You know, every girl needs a new dress for the Fall. To make the dress, I used a stamp from the Visual Artistry Stampers Anonymous Seamless Experience stamp collection. 

Then,  I got wild with alcohol inks and the Autumn Gatherings decorative strip. Wow, that was fun. I followed Tim's steps carefully since using the Alcohol Ink Cardstock was new for me.

Here's a pic of my background for the tag before the stamping and leaves. I used the Measured THS012 stencil and citrus alcohol ink. I used several pieces of the alcohol ink cardstock trying to find a good color. I remember Tim said to use a light color but I didn't have the lake mist he was featuring. 

Then the image was stamped. The leaves were made and layered from the bottom up so each layer could have a little "fluff" and curling of the edges.

In making the leaves, all I could think about were the vibrant colors of Fall, using the oranges, yellows, reds of alcohol inks worked great. Love, love the colors. The Copper Mixatives gave the palette a big boost.

A few extra leaves were attached to the hanger in case they were needed. 

It could get windy!!

There you have it, the September Tag 2014 - A New Fall Dress.
