Now on to what I created...

I created this tag from a piece of a shipping box that I had in my "recycle bin."  It measures 3.75" x 7.5".  I started out by spraying the background with LSG "Cajun Carnelian Red" and then stamped leaves using "Natures' Vein" acrylic stamps by CTMH.  I used a layering technique to add some depth to my leaves.  The background was stamped with CTMH Brown Bag ink and then the veins of the leaves were stamped using TH Walnut Stain.


I used the TH Sewing Room die to cut out the cute dress form and then created her an outfit for Fall...hehe!  I started by putting down some lace and then layered some Large Brown Rose Leaves (ZQL0 - 400) on top.  A necklace and belt of bling rhinestones and a 1/2" Paper Rose (R8 - 49) (painted with LSG "Red Hot Poker Orange" Magicals) make her outfit complete! :)


Behind the sentiment is a Crochet Doily by Kaiser Craft.  I cut out a scalloped circle using the 1st Place Award Ribbon Die-Namic by MFT and then added the pumpkin label by Crafty Secrets.  The banner was cut out of ivory card stock using the 1st Place Award Ribbon Die-Namic by MFT and the sentiment is from the "Inspired by Autumn" acrylic stamp set by MFT.  The leaf sprays are from Karla's ETSY store (KARLAS001).


I created a cluster of flowers using some of my favorite IAR products.  Here is what I used:
White Short Paper Flower Spray (SP1 - 151) (painted with LSG "Red Hot Poker Orange" Magicals)
2" Rose (R 77 - 15) (sprayed with LSG "Van Dyke Sepia" Moon Shadow Mist)
Curly Roses (G3 - 152) (one sprayed with LSG "Desert Moon Cactus Gold" and one with LSG "Cajun Carnelian Red")

I nestled in a fabric flower charm from the Vintage Groove collection by Making Memories.  To make the cluster look a bit fuller, I used my Martha Steward Oak Leaf punch to create some "fall foilage" behind my gorgeous flowers.


I hope you enjoyed my fall tag.
