Autumn Colours Tag

 
Hello friends
I am so behind with visiting blogs
but this evening I shall blog hop to catch up :)
 
wow we have some lovely Autumn colours in our garden
and in our local countryside
so pretty
a favourite time of year
and two or three challenges
with Autumn Colours as the theme a favourite with me
so I have made a tag
 
I coloured it the background with DI
 tea dye, bundled sage, dried marigold and victorian velvet
die cut a topper and popped it through the text embossing folder
it has been rubbed with DI to bring out the text
I stamped the edges with a floral swirl
added a little bit of bunting (to herald Autumn)
the little birds waiting to fly to warmer climbs
is a piece of tape which I had forgotten I had in my stash
I finished with punched butterflies, a gorgeous flower
and a piece of lilac ribbon stuff,
Mmm
it is like a bit of tiny chain mail linked and you can twist it into shape and it holds
I had it for ages and it fell out of a box I was rummaging in.
I have some lovely Autumn purple/ lilac Chrysthans in my garden.
 
 
I am entering this tag into
 
 
Thanks for stopping by my blog and for your lovely comments
have a great week
hugs Sandra XXX
