Autumn's here!

I've had such a busy few days - my new 'home' has arrived (much more of that on Wednesday!) and I have been so busy sorting it out but I did want to join in with my first Crafty Boots DT challenge. I was thrilled to be asked to join the incredibly talented team and despite having all my stash all over the place I was able to make simple autumnal tag. Before I go on I'd like to welcome all my new followers - I love reading your comments and they mean a lot - thank you. 
I cut a tag from some old Fancy Pants paper and put a little Vintage Photo Distress Ink on the edges. I then stamped a Wendy Vecchi stamp at both ends in the same ink. I then covered a piece of white card in Antique Linen Distress Stain, stamped a ticket in Vintage Photo Distress Ink and added an eyelet and twine. I also covered a little of the card in Pumice Stone Distress Stain and then stamped a circular stamp in Peeled Paint Distress Ink (the stamps were from the sets: Ticket to Art, Mail Art, Art from the Heart). 
The leaves were cut from Tim Holtz's Glassine paper, using my Tattered Leaves die and my trusty Vagabond. The I scrunched them up (so satisfying!) and then wiped Tim's new ink pads over the top to highlight the wrinkles (Ripe Persimmon, Gathered Twigs, Seedless Preserves). Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have a fabulous week! Gabrielle x
ps - I'm also adding this to the Sunday Stamper challenge - the theme is leaves!

I like the pattern added to the tag and the autumn colours. You've got lots of great texture in the leaves.
