Today's post is extra special because it is also Unity Stamp Friends with Flair day! I love linking up every Friday and visiting all the great projects. I used only Unity stamps for this autumn tag...


I really needed something a little less 'halloween' and a little more 'autumn' so this tag is a nice subtle combination of the two. The background uses Unity "Wood Grain Script" and a chevron/arrow stamp from a grab bag. The ink is my absolute favorite part of this tag which is Tsukineko Brilliance ink in "Rocket Red". The ink goes on almost like paint and leaves a subtle gold shine behind. It's so pretty, I love it!


The leaves are wood veneers from Prima and colored with Distress Inks "Spiced Marmalade" and "Festive Berries". The sentiment is Unity "Finally Fall" and bordered with a strip of paper from DCWV 'burlap stack'. The cute batties are Unity "kooky spooky".


In the photo above, I was trying to show a glimpse of that great ink shining in gold. The corner motif is a verrrry old rub on. Hope you like the tag! 

Now hop on over to these talented ladies to see what they have in store today!
