Autumn Fruits and Berries


Autumn holds many memories for me, one being the grape harvest, vendange, in the Southwest of France.   I made my grapes and leaf from Fimo lightweight white clay and coloured it with alcohol inks and glimmer mist.  The small white looking bits are in fact the glimmer mist.  My background tag is made from the moppings up of many distress pools over the months and was perfect in colour.  I stamped this with brown stazon vine leaves and heat embossed the edge with copper powder.  The "misty & mellow" words are embossed in the same powder.  Contrasting ribbons at the top add the finishing touch.  

Thank you all for your encouraging remarks on my circus tent and I look forward to visiting as many of your posts as possible on this week's topic. 
 If I don't get you this time I will another time.
