Hello Autumn Tag

Hi everyone.  Today I'm playing along with "Tag You're It!" where my sweet friend Marcia (Marcia's Stampin' Pad), is the Featured Designer.


Isn't her tag adorable??!!  I don't have any cute images like that, so I decided to go with an autumn tree that is loosing it's leaves.  Maybe the little girl in Marcia's tag might like to play on the tree swing? :)

Here's a close-up.

I stamped my tree and sentiment in Brushed Corduroy and heat embossed in clear.  Then I used distress inks and a waterbrush to watercolour the tag.  Added ribbon and a twine bow to finish.

Thank you for the wonderful inspiration Marcia.  I had fun making this quick, CAS tag.

  8. A gorgeous tag Loll - I see swings in autumn and winter on a 'naked' tree and think they look so sad .

  9. First she has to rake the leaves under the swing, Loll. This is such a cute compliment to Marcia's tag.

  12. Oh golly, I think she is going to neglect her raking duties to jump onto that swing and fly, fly, fly! That might get her into a spot of trouble with mum or dad. :) What a lovely, inviting image. Makes you just want to play! Thanks for sharing!
