Tag Tuesday... Autumn leaves..

Hi Everyone,

I would just like to say a big warm welcome to my new followers, Thank you for taking the time to join me it means so much to me x x x
This is my Tag For Tag Tuesday I must confess I often forget to put up my
Tag Tuesday tags... I load it on the TT site and don't put it up on mine!!! I have remembered this week, The theme is Autumn Leaves.. I used a plain Manila tag, coloured with distress inks (peacock feathers & spiced marmalade) water flicked on the tag before drying... The background stamp is from SU stamp set  (lovely as a tree)  The leaves are cut out using the TH Tattered leaves die.. these were cut from Grunge paper covered with clear crackle paint and left to dry.. assorted colours of Alcohol inks were used  and the pinecone is from TH die... It was supposed to be a acorn  tee-hee... I must say there are some fabulous tags over at Tag Tuesday each week..

Thank you so much for your visit x x  Hugs May x x x

I would like to enter this tag into the Challenge  (Fall into Fall)
