Copper, Ginger and Rust

The very last Gingersnap Creations challenge: Copper, Ginger or Rust ... it is hard to believe and a very sad moment. Gingersnap Creations felt so much of a creative home for such a long time ... it was my very first Design Team position and I so much enjoyed it ... thank you so much to everyone for all the fun and inspirations .... Luckily it is not only an end but also a new beginning ... Gingersnap Creations will transform into Shar's Unruly PaperArts', and there is also Ali's new venture 'Vintage Page Designs' - phew - so we can still play together (lol).
For the last challenge I created a tag with all of the colours ... I very lightly 'pre-inked' the tag with Adirondack Ginger ink before inking the background with Adirondack Rust ink and the mask from Tattered Angels. I stamped onto the tag with Archival ink (stampes: La Blanche and Heindesign) and cut some stamped flowers (stamp: Craft Stamper Magazine). The centre of the flowers and the edge of the tag have been treated with some Copper Stickles.
Hope you can all join us for this last Gingersnap challenge, Petra.

Petra, I so hear you about GC ending! It really is where I got brave and showed off my art and grew and even started blogging! I sure hope we will all keep in touch! This tag in the lovely shades of ginger, rust and copper is stunning! Fabulous design and flowers just pop!
