A Challenging Day - part 3

So here is the third challenge I saw that I wanted to have a go at - Tag It On 22 - Fruits of My Labour - you have to do a tag using fruit in appropriate colours.  Like Frankie, challenge host, I have used a Stamp in the Hand stamp - apples. And I know it's still not a Christmas card, lol.

The tag is coloured with shabby shutters and scattered straw distress inks, then sprayed with mini misters holding mustard seed ink/copper perfect pearl, and then shabby shutters ink/gold perfect pearl. 

I stamped the apples in all sorts of colours but settled for pine green Memories on paper, cut them out (they're in a row of 3 on the stamp) and added some green trim.

I seem to be quite tired now, so am going to have a rest - at least dinner is a takeaway Chinese (M&S) so no cooking to do tonight!

Loving your recent work. This is a really beautiful colour, one I rarely use and having seen this, haven't a clue why not. Beautiful.
