Autumn leaves and acorns

Hi you all, the week has flown by again and it's a new Tuesday in a new month. Our theme this week is Autumn leaves, acorns and conkers. I embossed a craft tag using a TH texture folder with wood grain, and embossed it with forest moss and rusty hinge. I stamped the acorns and the squirrel, coloured them with prismalos and cut them out before fixing them to the tag with foam squares. The little owl up in the tree should have been on my tag 2 weeks ago, but hid himself in one of my boxes, so I stuck him up on the branch together with the bird. I added some leaves, a toadstool, a hedgehog, and a little ghost hiding behind a pumpkin.



The tag didn't turn out quite like I had envisaged it, but that's life!  Have a great week you all, and thanks for looking!
Valerie
