VINTAGE JOURNEY  "Autumn Colours"

Today has not been the best day of my life, I don't get a lot of time to craft now I have got a job, but today my car engine blew up on the M42 and its only 6year old!
So to keep sane after I had paid £160 for recovery and to avoid thinking about the £2000 I need for a new engine..........I made a tag!

I love autumn colours, especially when the leaves change and stay on the trees.  Beech is my favourite.  The blackberries that the dogs beat me to and the delight in finding a brand new conker every year.  A special time.
I cant remember a lot of what I did here, I was in such a strop!   I have used the wrinkle free distress technique using some Atelier acrylic paint, then embossed the tag when dry.
The flowers & leaves are Heartfelt Creations stamps that I have had a long time and only just used. I coloured these  with Distress Inks.
The toadstool stamp was also having a first use, from a set that I had by "Sheen" over a year ago.   Distress Stickles also feature, I can't leave these alone.
The birds are from the Birds In Flight strip die covered in glossy accents.  I drew the owl freehand.
I love this collection of colours, at a lovely time of year
