First Day Of Autumn

Good morning and alovely moring it is here in Norfolk.For the first day of Autumn.Yep Autumn has arrived with the chilly mornings and the trees changing various colours.So i thought id show you this tag ive made for a swap im doing in October.thought it was apt for the day

I have used Tim holtz Tag die covered it with the beauitful lush new release Bo-Bunny Designer collection papers called "Et Cetera"oh i highly recommend these fab gorgeous papers!

Anyways i have distressed using various DI inks ,Wild Honey ,Spiced Marmalade,Rusty Hinge,around the edges with Barn door.

I have then used my new stamp set from Andy Skinner
"A Winters Tale"

I have used Distress Embossing ink on the stamp then embossed with copper embossing powder.Which even though say myself looks better than the piccy.

I have added some ribbon to the bottom of the tag ,followed by some punched out leaves in various colours of SU cardstock.Added a leaf from my stash to the top of the tag .I also punched a star shape in gold metal and glued onto a clear glass nugget which i then fixed to the leaf,with one of my home made pins.

I then found this fab metal Acorn which has been sat in my charm ,trinket box for good year!and adorned it to the base of the tree.

I also used black archival ink to stamp the sentiment from a stamp set from crafty individuals

"A Wonderful world".The alpha letters spelling fall are from Tim Holtz. Heres close up of the lovely copper embossing.

I am entering this tag into the following challanges:
