Die Cuttin Divas: Challenge #92 Thanksgiving
 
 
I first cut my tag from the Cricut Stretch Your Imagination cartridge, then lathered on Rangers Ditress Stains in Mustard Yellow, and Barn Door. Now here is where I learned a lesson using my new acquired Dylusion Spray, Melted Chocolate....it covers everything and it absorbs all colors. Oh well, I still love it, will just have to be more prudent when applying it! Since I didn't have a hatch background stamp I used my Faber Castell Pitt Pen to make lines across the background.
 
 I then cut a piece of burlap and glued it into the corner with Aleene's Tacky Glue, layering the fall leaves cut from the Simply Scarecrow cartridge and the branches cut from the French Manor cartridge. I had some wheat from an old floral arrangement so I glued them down and added a twine bow. I then added letters from Reminisce's Unwritten.
 
To finish it off I added the Inkssentials Glossy Accents and for the sheer fun of it...just to see how it would react, I added a dollop of Citrus Alcohol Ink while it was still wet. It spread out pretty well, but I like the mottled look on the right corner of the acorn.
