With the rustic twig wreath I used other rustic elements as well--deckled edge Spellbinders die, distressed and ink edged paper, coffee-dyed trim, and twine. I colored with these Copics YR23, YR24,YR18,YR02,E43. While making the tag, I stamped a tiny portion of the wreath while the paper was still in the die to add just a touch of bittersweet to sentiment. The focal point and tag are inked with Antique Linen. After distressing the edge of the patterned paper the edges were too white, so I darked the white with Antique Linen. After purchasing this trim it was a little too yellow, so a few weeks ago I dyed it with some coffee--the end result-- a much better shade and for few hours a wonderful coffee aroma!
