Fall Tag

Hi Everyone! I hope you are enjoying your day. The weather is getting cooler and Thanksgiving is right around the corner. I want to show you a Thanksgiving tag I made for Tim Holtz's Tags of 2014 challenge. You can see Tim's demo here. I just love the colors this time of year, even though most of the leaves have passed their peak and are falling to the ground.

Isn't this a beautiful pumpkin? I stamped the image on metal and paper pieced it or should I say "metal pieced" it? LOL! The leaves were colored with Distress inks and a water pen. 

For the background I swiped the tag through several colors of acrylic paint that had been spritzed with water. I ran the tag through a leaf embossing folder and enhanced the leaves by sponging Gathered Twigs Distress ink over them. I used the Tim Holtz Collection Bubble stencil over the background and sponged on Versa Mark ink. I then added Candlelight embossing powder courtesy of Sparkle N Sprinkle. 

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope your day is full of good things!
