Tag It On - Leaf Me Alone

It's time for another challenge recipe at DragonsDream, and my turn to choose the recipe.  For Leaf Me Alone, I want you to use the colour orange, some metal, and leaves.

 I went to my Dylusions stash for this tag - a wet tag (water) was sprayed with the lush 'squeezed orange' spray, spritzing again with water to blend/move the colour around, and dried. The edges were inked with the Tim Holtz distress ink 'ripe persimmon'.

The stamped sentiment is also from Dylusions and so are the leaves - both the small sprig on the tag, and the ones on the copper metal.
I applied some Treasure Gold (aquamarine) with my finger tip and a painted button is also covered in both this and the Spanish Topaz TG.
Added some flower trim to the base, also sprayed with the 'squeezed orange' spray, and though you can't really see it, added some orange stickles glitter to the centres.

Can't wait to see what you dream up to share with us this fortnight!
