Warm autumn days

The temperature is warming up again and by the weekend it may hit 22c here in the sunny south. All this week it has been very mild and I have enjoyed more sunny days with Mother Nature.
This little moorhen was sitting at the waterfall at the ponds amongst the falling leaves
 There are rich purples and pinks amongst the autumnal foliage
 The trees are shining with golden colours
and even this crow shone in the sunshine
Today I am sharing another  Halloween tag as we are already nearly half way through October.
I used some Oxides as inspired by these colours and added some stamping with my old but much loved Tim Holtz stamps

and then as you do covered it all up with a focal stamped with the witch and splattered with blood ink 😁
I added some fun die cuts using snippets of inky mop up card, including a crackle pumpkin and also one of my fab Halloween skeleton hand charms.

Here are a couple of close ups;
