The gorgeous colours of Autumn

This fortnights challenge over at Tag Tuesday has just launched...and I had the choice to chose a theme. I have chosen Autumn because I so enjoy the change in nature and all its wonderful colours, plus it's my most favourite time of the year.
I have created 2 tags for your inspiration...the first being a circular tag with a stamped image of the Harvest Maiden...a stunning wood mounted stamp that I have had for many years, she was just perfect to use for my Autumn theme.
I stamped the image and then using distress inks on my craft mat and adding a very tiny amount of water to each colour, I used a fine paint brush to add the colours to the image.
To finish the tag I distressed the edges with spiced marmalade distress ink and added the eyelet and ribbon.


My 2nd Tag was cut from some water colour card that was an off cut from something I had made ages ago, (I like to keep the scraps) I think I was playing with inks and sprays with the card at the time..anyway, the colours looked good for my Autumn themed tag.


I stamped the script first, then added some muslin that I grubbied up with burlap distress ink and added it to the bottom of the tag. 
The leaves are real that have been pressed and dried, no idea how long I have had them, they were very delicate to use, so my tweezers were essential.
I added the leaves and a flower to the tag and then added the eyelet...in my haste to catch the best light for a photo I forgot to add the ribbon tie...
Do please pop along and join in with our challenge...you can design your tag anyway you wish, so long as you use Autumn colours...

These are really great tags, Sandie - I love the rainbow of colours on the second one and those soft felt flowers and leaves, and the colouring on the round tag is fantastic.
