Autumn Leaves

We had a lovely walk in the Autumn sunshine today - it was so beautiful (if a tad muddy towards the end, but we won't go into that ... well, John went into it, but ...)
Anyway, I was inspired to do my tag for Tag Tuesday - this week the theme is Autumn leaves and Carolyn has created a beautiful backdrop for us all to set our creations against - pop over and have a look.
Here's my version, photographed out in the garden in that gorgeous sunshine
It only took about half an hour to do - I used an embossing punch to cut the leaves from scrap papers, then sanded them a bit and used Distress Ink in Walnut Stain and Orange Marmalade, and finally scrunched and folded them to make them more realistic. I must say I was well chuffed with them and very impressed with the punch, which has been languishing all unloved in the back of a drawer for ages.
The finished leaves were stuck on to a Joe Brown clothing tag I'd squirrelled away and I added a piece of unravelled garden twine to finish it off. Here's a closer look
Off to have a look at everyone else's creations now.
Cherry-ho for now :o)
