Nature's Wonder Tag

This tag was created with the October challenge for Tag It Tuesday in mind: Nature.  I am also entering it in the Mixed Media with Autumnal Hues challenge over on Country View Challenges as well as the Forever Autumn challenge on the That's Crafty challenge blog.  I worked on a #8 manilla tag as I wanted to tie this piece in with a previous tag in autumnal colours: I love this time of year!
I started by blending Vintage Photo Distress Oxide all over the tag, spritzing it lightly with water and drying with a heat tool.
Next, I laid the large Birch layering stencil by Tim Holtz (THS069) over the tag and blended Walnut Stain Distress Oxide through it.  Once again the tag was given a light spritz of water and dried.
For the following step I used the mini Autumn layering stencil (THMS060) with Candied Apple, Fossilized Amber and Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxides; moving the stencil as needed to cover the whole tag with leaves.
To provide further texture and layering, I embossed the whole tag in the A4 Leafy Montage embossing folder by Creative Expressions, then picked out some areas of the embossing using a Copper gilding wax.
Finally two stickers from the Small Talk Occasions set by Tim Holtz were added and rubbed over with a little distress ink in Vintage Photo and Candied Apple.
