Dragons Dream Team - Tag It On - Autumn Leaves

Hi gang, and welcome to another challenge from the Dragons Dream Team - Elizabeth is setting the theme this fortnight, and it is Autumn Leaves.

I started with a size 10 tag and some wrinkle free distress with Mowed Lawn mostly, and some green Bistre powders too.
I stamped the words which are from JoFY31 multiple times in black archival ink
 the leaves are die cut from a sheet of card which I painted randomly with various orange red and yellow Fresco paints - Brown Shed, Tango, Autumn Fire, Smoked Paprika and a little Guacamole and Limelight.

I then stamped a scribbly circle (EEG07 in black, all over the card, and infilled with dots (ELB24) in Red Geranium archival before die cutting the Tattered Leaves and movers and shapers (Tim Holtz) as many times as I could from the sheet (A4 size) (forgot a photo of this stage!)
 kind of randomly dropped the leaves on the tag and the glued them down, used 3d foam for some to get some depth.

Loved this theme, Elizabeth, especially as I made it a day after a(nother) trip to Kew to see the Autumn colour (check here!)

Hope you'll enjoy it too, and please join in - don't forget to use at least one real stamp and you do need a tag!

Scrumptious autumn leaves, and they pop beautifully against the fresh green background.

This is such a lovely tag, Helen. I love the colours of the trees this autumn and your tag captures the whirling kaleidoscope of the falling leaves perfectly. I really like the addition of that scribbly circle, which goes so well. xx

I seem to have missed your WOYWW post, but I was curious about snowflake paste. What they won't think of next! Back to the lovely tag you created, it simply SCREAMS autumn. The leaves are lovely, even though the ones at my place have still not turned. Yours on the other hand, look just like the ones I envision mine will look in a few days or weeks.

Sorry my life has gotten so busy, but I'll visit your last trip to Kew soon. Right now, I'm fighting a time related deadline. You KNOW how much I love your Kew photos.
