Autumn Trees

I really tempted fate last time by saying how nice the garden looked didn't I? What happened, we had gale force winds on Saturday that blew all the leaves off, broke down the lovely grasses and left the garden looking decidedly the worst for wear. I've put most of it right now, but it's definitely past it's best!!!! Still, looking on the bright side, at least the sun is still shining.

There seems to be lots of challenges out there at the moment which all have similar themes, so I have combined one tag for two challenges this week, hope that's ok.


I blended lots of lovely coloured inks all over the tag to try and re create that lovely misty sky you get as the sun goes down in the Autumn. It seems to be on fire and the leaves on the floor are reflected in the sky. The tree stamp was from Crafty Individuals and I inked it in very dark blue and clear embossed it.

Tuesday Taggers have the theme of Trees sponsored by The Craft Barn and the Dragon' s Tag It On has the theme of Autumn so I hope my Tag fits both.

Thank you for visiting and I hope your Monday has gone well.

Another lovely tag, Lisa, with one of my favourite tree stamps. You have captured the misty look beautifully.

Pity about your garden. We had the strong winds here too, blowing all the leaves off, but fortunately no damage. I think autumn has somehow crept up without us noticing this year.

Been admirin gthe autumn colours on the trees as they turn more red and gold each day. Your beautiful tag reflects those warm autumn colours wonderfully.

Lucky us we were spared the winds this time.
