Autumnal Tag

I decided to create an Autumnal tag this time around using the fabulous pumpkin image from the GOTHIC 31 plate. The background of my tag has been coloured with rust hinge Distress Stain, giving a wonderful rich warm Autumnal backdrop to my pumpkin images. I have also added some faux stitching for further interest to my background.
I used a Spellbinders die to showcase the pumpkins which I stamped with black archival ink, masking the image before I stamped the next one. I also used my water brush to bleach out a few areas to give highlights to each pumpkin. I added AUTUMN using the Secretary Pool plate stamping onto white card and onto shrink plastic for the smaller letters.
I stamped a further pumpkin onto thick white card, coloured with rusty hinge Distress Ink and added Clear Rock Candy. I added this pumpkin to two leaves cut using the Tattered Leaves die which I also stamped with the Ephemera Background stamp to add a little more interest, along with some natural twine, I love the combination of the natural twine and the earthy tones of the rusty hinge.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Scrumptious autumnal colours - I love your texty pumpkins, and the crackly one in foreground is so cool against the gorgeous burlap bows!
