Pumpkin Everything Tags

 When I spied the Neat and Tangled clear stamp, I knew I HAD to get sentiment, exactly. After using a Little B tag die (set available at Ben Franklin Crafts) to cut out a watercolor paper tag, I began playing with the wonderfully rich colors in my Kuretake watercolor set (available at Ben Franklin Crafts) to achieve just the right autumnal blend. Once the tag was dry I stamped with dark brown pigment ink and heat embossed with a clear sparkly embossing powder. (This effect doesn't show up well in my photo but does look great IRL.)  Since I felt the colors were not dark enough, I applied more watercolor paint and let it dry.  Once satisfied with the look of the tag, I trimmed the edges with a deckle edge scissors and adhered it to a non-trimmed brown card stock tag. A sparkly ribbon completed the tag and made it ready for tying onto goodie bags filled with baked pumpkin treats.
I am once again showing the Misti stamping tool and Kuretake watercolor set because I think either or both would be excellent gifts to give a well-deserving crafter this Christmas.  Both items are among my favorite crafting tools available at HM Ben Franklin Crafts.  Happy Xmas Shopping!

Before my trip to Ben Franklin, I always check your blog first for ideas on what to buy. I'll be picking up this stamp, love this sentiment. Your watercoloring is beautiful, thanks for the inspiration!
