Autumn's Fruitfulness

Hello folks, hope you're having a good week in the exceedingly chilly weather we have at the moment and are managing to say warm.
I'm here today with an Autumn themed tag in a slightly unusual shape which is my midweek post for the current challenge at Make My Monday which has the theme of Autumn with the twist of Kraft Card and Twine/String.

A very simple creation using kraft card die cut with the Tim Holtz cabinet card die then embossed with my current favourite embossing folder - the Darice fall leaves.
I added a scrap of corrugated card from my bits box, already painted with a rich dark red acrylic paint and stamped the Gordiano bird and berries image (Joanna Sheen) with Memories creamy coffee chalk ink and coloured it with watercolour pencils. I then cut it out to leave a border of cream card and added it to the tag with foam tape.
I finished off with some garden twine (Wilkinsons). Very quick and easy!

Have a great day.
Hugs, Fliss xx

I'm a bit of an autumnal kind of a girl Fliss and your two MMM makes are right up my street! I love the shape of your tag on this one and all those gorgeous berries, and the layered leaves and golden tones of the cards. Have a lovely weekend! Vicky x

Beautiful watercolouring on the stamped image Fliss. You say it's simple but I say it's so effective and less is certainly more in this case! Love the use of your corrugated card from your bits box too!
