It seems like ages since I did a tag for the TAG IT ON CHALLENGE.  Frankie is off on her hols so we have had a couple of weeks to do this one.  The theme was to use AUTUMN COLOURS.  I love this time of the year.  The trees are stunning and there is a crispness about everything.  Even the light is different isn't it?  Not too sure about the days getting shorter tho :(

I roughly tore out the shape, which I thought reflected the sometimes ragged effect going on with nature.  The background is distress inks - old paper & fired brick.  This was overstamped with old paper again.  It was all spritzed with copper glimmer mists & then stamped with this gorgeous blackberry stamp from Dimension Fourth.....isn't it cute???

Thank you so much for looking.  I promise to tidy my desk now hahaha!!! HUGS XXX

How on Earth do you find anything??? I don't have half as much on my table and I still can't find anything when I put it down for a minute! ;)

oh Karen I love the colours you have used on his tag, I also love the way you have torn the edges (one of my favourite techniques). You have really done a good job.

What a gorgeous tag Karen. The colours are beautiful and I like the torn effect, like you say it looks like the wind blown leaves.
I've missed the Dragon, I agree it seems ages since we did any tags. I must get round to my Autumn one though!!
