Midweek Motivation - Autumn Kraft Card and Twine

Hello folks, it's Fliss here today to share a little inspiration for the current challenge featuring my favourite time of year as I really love to see the trees turning gorgeous shades of amber and rust, to me as great as seeing the first green leaves of Spring.
My creation is a simple tag made with the Tim Holtz cabinet die for a very different and slightly more unusual shape.

I die cut the shape using kraft card and embossed it with the Darice fall leaves folder perfect for this time of year.
I stamped the beautiful bird with berries (Gordiano by Joanna Sheen) with Memories creamy coffee chalk ink and then coloured up with watercolour pencils. I cut out the image to leave a contrasting cream border.
I added a scrap of corrugated card painted a deep rusty red near the base, popped on the image with foam tape, added a rustic string tie and the top and there we have a finished tag - very easy if like me you did the watercolouring whilst watching TV!

Hope you like this.
