Autumn Extravaganza

Hi everyone,

Behind like the proverbial cow's tail again this week, but I really enjoyed a quiet couple of hours in my workroom today creating my tag for this week's theme. Ironically, whilst I was being inspired by the beautiful carpet of autumnal leaves currently strewn over our lawn, my husband was busy outside gathering them up before they get chance to block the drains again :o)

Here's my tag ...

The leaves were made with XCut Botanicals embossing punches, coloured with Distress Inks and finished with Inka Gold to give them a subtle gleam. The base is a recycled tag from a bottle and I think this would be a fun idea as a gift tag for a bottle of my home-made Damson Brandy - if I can bear to part with any!!

Thanks for looking, see you again soon for some poetry! 

Annie :o)

  7. Amazing in all it's golden glory Annie!
    We all do see the world so differently don't we?
    I marvel at the leaf drop from a recent storm and my husband gets out the rake!

  8. Wow, what a lush tag! Very unusual! I love those gold paper beads at the bottom (if that's what they are)!
