 Hello everyone..

Sharing a tag today for a couple challenges, but I was actually making pumpkins anyway and just enjoying myself..

So my tag was sprayed with Dina Wakley gloss sprays and set aside to dry for a
Then I pulled it out and stamped the brick wall background stamp with Archival ink, then left that to dry.

Then started die cutting pumpkins, I love the eat pumpkins, buttercups actually, we get those babies so dry they stick to the roof of your mouth, so yummy..the season is at Christmas so something to really look forward to, although I have several bags still in the freezer to roast up.
I cut the pumpkins in white, then orange, leaves in green and layered them all up..

Die cut then inked up, Stampin' Up "Pumpkin Pie"..had this ink pad and a few more for over 15 years and they are still going strong..amazing.

Added some distress Vintage photo ink...

Placed them how I wanted them on the bottom of the tag...

Bit of dimension going on..but not too much.

Added the hello die cit, so lovely and fine and added stickers to spell Autumn..

Then added my little critter, a squirrel, but over inked him a bit and difficult to see the  detail..

And here is the finished tag, with all the pretty gems sparkling away..lots of fun to make  and kept me out of trouble..

Thanks so much for stopping by..see you in a couple..
