Tag You're It Challenge #19 -- Faux Postage

I can't remember where I found this challenge. (I've been having short term memory loss -- self-diagnosed -- and am really hoping that I haven't participated in this challenge before!!)

Since I have several "postage" type stamps that I really love, I knew that this was a challenge that I wanted to make something for. Photographing this tag was a challenge in and of itself. So my apologies for the "interesting" photograph. The one thing that I can say is that the colors for once are quite accurate.

The main "postage" stamp is a Hero Arts stamp. The three small leaves stamps, ummmm, I unmounted them a couple of years ago and didn't document well their source.

I'll probably put this tag on a card eventually, but I haven't yet decided exactly what I want to do with it.

Materials: cardstock (stash); stamps (Hero Arts, unknown); ink (black-Colorbox, colored-Ranger distress inks: Brick Red, Pine Needles, Dried Marigold); fibers (EK Success).

As always thanks again for looking.
