Autumn Tag - emboss resist, watercolour marker

Autumn is a time of reflection, of thanks and giving. My tag features a Unity Stamp Co set embossed and then coloured with Zig Clear Color makers.

Putting It Together

This was a quick project in the waning minutes before I had to go to bed. 

I stamped and embossed the leaf and a sentiment from the set. I had intended for the sentiment to be at the bottom of the tag, but I stamped it upside down! So... emboss the leaf, trim the tag, and emboss the sentiment and all is well.

I used Zig Clean Color watercolour markers and a waterbrush to add colour to the leaf using the embossing as a resist/dam for the colours.
