Autumn Tag

Good morning everyone,

I have made a tag to enter into four challenges this month:-

Dragonsdream Tag it On: "Autumn"

Crafty Calendar Challenge "Autumn" with the optional extra of plants and vegetation.

By the Cute and Girly "Autumn Glory

One Stop Craft Challenge "Autumn Inspiration"

Here's what I used to make this tag:-

Basic white cardstock cut to a tag shape.
Tim Holtz Distress Inks to create the background - Shabby Shutters, Aged Mahogany & Peeled Paint
Leaf punch - to make a stencil
Brilliance inks for leaves - Cosmic Copper and Pearlescent Olive, I also inked the edges of the tag with Cosmic Copper
Foliage - Inkadinkadoo stamp (stamped with black Stazon)
Pear - Stampin' Up "Ageless Adornment" set, coloured with Distress Inks (colours listed above) and heat embossed using Versamark and clear embossing powder

Thank you taking the time to visit my blog today and for any comments you may leave.

Clare xx
