Autumnal Tag - Peel offs, glitter and distress inks

A sincere thankyou to everyone who has visited and commented on my blog recently. I have loved visiting your blogs too, if you have one. Your makes are so inspiring!

Last night I slept like a baby for the first time in a long long time! Straight through from 9.30pm last night to 8am this morning! I am feeling very refreshed so got cracking straight away on my crafting.

Today I have another pair of tags to share with you, this time with an autumnal theme. Yes, I know it is the wrong time of year but that is what came to mind yesterday and today when working with the peel off stickers and combination of distress inks that I chose. 

Once I had finished with the inks I decided that I'd overdone it and it needed lightening up a bit so I roughly heat embossed Snowflake Embossing Tinsel by Ranger over the top. I love the effect it gave me! I finished off the edge of the tag with Archival Ink in Watering Can.

I used some peel off sticker leaves and used the same technique as on my Under The Sea tag from yesterday's post.

I mounted the embellishments with silicone glue, added the brown twine and heat embossed the sentiment in black to finish.

So, thanks to that wonderful nights sleep last night, I am on top form today and ready to tackle more tags!... Yes, MORE TAGS!

I have no idea what I'm going to do with them all but I'm definitely addicted!
