I look up to the branches of few of them but they had already shed their treasures onto the ground. Rich pickings were everywhere............
I also like to see the shells peeping out from the tree but initially I thought that all the conkers were already on the ground
I think he approved.
First I made an inky background by using several of Tim Holtz's distress inks and his wrinkle free ink technique. Once dry I added some stamping using black archival ink and edged the tag with vintage postcard DI. The grungy stamp is one of Tim's too and I think it has a fab Goth feel to it.
I love the Halloween images from Ignacio of Nicecrane Designs and they are the first ones I turn to at this time of the year. The particular sheet I used for my tag is this one. I love the vintage feel to them. It was then time to put on my creative hat and this is the tag I created.
Jen's recent blog candy...thanks Jen so much. They stamp beautifully.
The faux black and purple lace border was cut from card using the Queen Anne border die by Cheery Lynn.
The leaves are Memory box and I used some more of my recent master sheet of autumn hand coloured card to cut them out with.
