Thanks a mushroom


     I bought this Reverse Confetti tag die during Black Friday sales and couldn't wait to use it.  I've stamped this gorgeous mushroom from Purple Onion Designs onto some watercolor paper and used my Distress inks to color it.  I first tried using my Derwent watercolor pencils, but I just couldn't get the richness of color you get with the Distress inks.  I used my Krylon gold leafing pen to go around the edge of the tag.  I also added a drop shadow to the sentiment with some gray ink.


     Can't believe 2019 is almost here.  Wonder what this year will hold.
Tracy

Hi Tracy! I'm so behind on my blog visits, and wanted to pop in to say hi! My new puppy is tending to keep me away from my computer most of the time these days. Hope you are doing well!
Your card is adorable! Really love the vivid coloring on the mushroom, and the gold accents are fab. That tag die adds awesome texture, too! And cool effect with the drop shadow!
