Fall Tag with Chipboard Oak Trees

Hola! Tami here with you today.

The calendar may say it's September, but here in San Antonio the thermometer is still inching upwards of 100 degrees EVERY day! I could use some soft fall breezes right now.

So if fall won't come to me outside, I decided to bring a little bit of it inside. Clear Scraps has many Chipboard Embellishments and the Oak Trees is a beautiful one...

I thought they would be even more stunning decked out in the wonderful colors of Autumn.

Here is the tag I made using the Oak Trees Chipboard Embellishment...

To make the tag, I first spritzed the tag with a sky blue towards the top and brown and rust towards the bottom.

I also cut some hills from chipboard and spritzed them as well using copper and brown...

Next I colored the leafy portions of the trees with pearlized inks; I did one in silver and one in gold...

Then I added areas of different colors of gelatos around the leafy portions of the chipboard pieces...

and then blended the colors slightly...

the branches and trunk were colored in with pencils...

the sentiment was stamped at the right of the front hill in black ink...

then the elements were assembled on the tag using foam tape to add dimension to the top hill and left tree...

to finish the tag, I tied some raffia in a bow at the top and embellished it with leaves

I made by inking cardstock with several colors of pearlized ink, then stamping the leaf pattern over it...
