Autumn Leaves

My favourite time of year! How I love the colours as the leaves turn. This tag did not end up as I intended, do you ever get times like that? I kept adding leaves as I got engrossed in swirling various distress inks on my craft mat and so it ended up more overloaded than I had first imagined it!

I used Tim Holtz new blueprint leaves and acorn stamp and then his tattered leaves die which of course matches as all his materials go together so well. I mainly used his Autumn distress inks and at the end I made up a spray with cosmic shimmer gold powder, walnut stain ink and water in a little demister to give it some sparkle but that doesn't show up. The acorn I made dimensional by cutting out the cup again and putting adhesive pads behind, a little piece of string at the top and a sentiment by Elusive images.
Thank you for your lovely comments last week, all the tags were fabulous and I can see that this will be another beautiful week in all your Autumn glory!
By the way, I love the falling leaves too Carolyn, the blog is looking terrific.xx
