Have the leaves started turning color by you yet?? Ours are still mostly green yet, and they're saying we're a good two weeks behind this year because of the strange weather we've been having this year! Sure hope they start turning soon and don't go right to Winter!! But either way, I've colored up my own leaves in my craft room, so it's all good!
I started with a piece of Rustic Cream cs and stamped leaves from Clearly Besotted's Autumn Flowers and Gina K's Fall Foliage with Spiced Marmalade, Fired Brick, Mustard Seed, and Peeled Paint Distress Inks and water. Next I die cut my tag shape (Casual Fridays) and then ran the tag through an older Sizzix embossing folder. To bring the embossed words more into focus, I used Tea Dye Distress Ink and a sponge and lightly rubbed it over the tag.
Here's a closer up photo so you can see the actual leaves and words a little better. I added a little acorn to put my sentiment on and added a jute bow to the stem and then finished with a piece of heavy cream bakers twine.
There are lots of BEAUTIFUL tags from all the DT, so check them all out right HERE and then play along!
Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
