Autumn Tags


I love the colors of autumn and the Penelope Patterned Cardstock Collection from Red Rubber Designs  was the perfect choice for this fall tag.

 I love the little colored safety pin that you see attached to the muslin strip at the top of the tag.  I used the paper piecing method for the pumpkin...stamp from Fabulous Fall.

Small flowers, hand-dyed bandaging, a little bling, lace, and a safety pin add a lot of texture and interest.  The base for the flower embellishment is one of the hand crocheted flowers that you can find here.


Here is a nice little trio of leaves - Happy Leaf - with a beautiful flourish running through them.  They were heat embossed before inking the tag.

I like the distress ink watermark technique. You never really know what it will look like until you dry it.

Hope you had a little relief from the heat while viewing my autumn tags. Summer is moving so quickly that it will be autumn before you know it. Now if we could only get a little rain.

Fantastic Fall colours, and I love your paper distressing on the first tag - big fan of that effect! Beautiful background for those great silhouettes in the second one too.
