I have simply mounted it onto co-ordinating backing papers from the CD and also Artylicious Damask Delights. It was then mounted onto gold textured card, navy card and then onto the gold base card. The sentiment was gold embossed.
A very simple card and a very attractive one in real life although a difficult one to photograph.
Thanks for visiting and I appreciate all your comments.
The background paper with the flourish corners has been embossed using the Deb Devine Cuttlebug folder to give it some texture.
I hope you like my take on Elegance and please feel free to leave a comment. I appreciate them all.
I love the autumn and all its colours, it is my favourite season.
This tag was made using the Joseph's Coat technique and reminds me of the willows down in the bottom wood. I have used mustard seed, rusty hinge, shabby shutters and vintage photo DI's to create the background, stamped the willow frond and clear embossed and then sponged walnut stain over the top. The willow is a stamp by A Stamp in the Hand.
The Elusive Images inchies have been embossed in copper as has the willow frond on the small tag.
This tag is destined for a memory book about the place where I live. As all my things - it is a work in progress!
Thanks for visiting and do feel free to leave a comment. I learn such a lot from what you tell me.

I would recommend that you put a few apples together and arrange them in a similar way to the digi stamp. This allows you to have a close look at the colours and the way the light falls on the fruit. Select the colours you want to use and lay down colour for the darkest areas. The shine needs very little or no colour on at all. Slowly build the colour up in layers and mix the crayons to give little variations of colour. Every now and then, dip your paper stump in the OMS and gently blend the colours to a pleasing finish. Add extra colour on top for detail (like the stripes of red colour on the apples above).
It is a very relaxing pastime and also makes you look very closely at what you are colouring. I am no artist - I couldn't draw an apple, but with a bit of practice I can colour one in now!
The finished coloured image was highlighted by vintage photo DI sponged around the edges and matted and layered a couple of times onto Crafty Ann's Mottled Stone paper red/green.
