Autumn Tags

This weeks challenge has just started over at
                                    Go Tag Thursday
The theme this week is favourite time of the year...
                                   Here are my Tags.....

                                                  Tag 1

I created this large Tag by colouring the background with distress inks then stamping the row of trees using the masking technique as the stamp wasn't long enough for the whole tag. The sun was made by punching a circle on some paper and using it as a stencil. ( this I did before colouring the background )
Then I just added the sentiment....both stamps are by Inkylicious.

                                                 Tag 2

I created the background the same way as I did on the first tag, I wanted to have a nice autumn rustic look for the tag background...
I added some green mesh then inked up a scrap of corrugated cardboard with crushed olive distress ink, tied some raffia around it and adhered it to the tag.
The leaves were rubber stamped then cut out, dabbed with Barn Door,Fossilised Amber,Mowed Lawn and Crushed Olive distress ink...I added some very fine glitter for an early morning dew effect.

I am entering this 2nd Tag in to the Anything Goes...Orange Challenge over at 
I was delighted to find my September project was selected as one of their Top who's a Happy Bunny...
