Autumnal Colours

Autumn was definitely in the air this morning, with a dense mist in the valley and the top of Salisbury Plain peeping through in the distance. I love this time of year, so it's a perfect excuse to get out those lovely autumn colours of Distress Ink.
The Compendium Of Curiosities Challenge this week over at Studio L3 (where Linda has made a beautiful autumn themed card) is to make something using  the technique found on page 44 of Mr Tim Holtz's Compendium of Curiosities Vol. 2, I can say Enameled Stamping, but to find out what to do you need the book.
My entry is a simple tag.

The frame is from the Tattered Elements set, and as you can see it's slightly off centre on my tag. This was not intentional, but I think it's worked out OK. The butterflies are stamped in Coffee Archival Ink, and then I've used Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade and Rusty Hinge Distress Inks to colour my tag.
To finish off I' have rummaged around in my box of stash and used some Ideology , tissue tape, Salvage Stickers, and a little book plate.

Love your tag! Like the off-centered-ness of it! The addition of the tissue tape and book plate really set it off nicely.

I like it off center, too. And your enameled base is gorgeous!

From a photography point of view, off centre draws the eye - so it's great! I love the colours too.
