Good morning, it's another marvellous Monday morning and I am back with my weekly dose of Visible Image inspiration. We are still enjoying a glorious autumn full of sunshine and rich deep colours all around.
The leaves on the trees are stunning
I am sharing a tag today which gives a nod toward Halloween but still embraces the rich colours surrounding us.
I wanted to use one of the older Visible Image stamp sets as it also reminds of the gorgeous woods we walk our son's dog Bear in.
with one of the new release quotes
I also used the fibres stencil as it has such an organic feel to it like the branches of the trees.
This is what I got up to.
I took some autumnal coloured distress inks
and using the wrinkle free technique inked up my tag.
I then added some extra colour using my stencil and some rusty hinge and wilted violet distress inks.
I die cut some leaves from inky mop up card, stamped them with VI words and added Crackle glaze to get that great crunchy leaves effect. I also stamped, embossed and cut up the Create to escape words so that I could arrange them on my tag.
I placed one of the crunchy autumnal leaves into the beak of the bird.
Here is a close up
I hope you are still being inspired by the colours of autumn too?

Thanks as always for stopping by today and for the kind comments you take the time to leave. Today, here in the South of England it might reach 22c but it will be the last day we see these temperatures again until next year. Spare a thought though for my friends in the west and particularly those in N Ireland, they may be feeling the tail end of Hurricane Ophelia later. Take care guys.
Bye for now,
