Tag Tuesday-Autumn Leaves

This week the theme for Tag Tuesday  is Autumn Leaves.
I wanted to use this tree stamp for this tag, and had thought about sticking on falling leaves, but it was just too small. Instead I coloured in the leaves in felt tip. Orange was the only colour that showed up, the red and yellow I tried were too insipid. I chose blue and green for the background and cut these pieces from an old paint chart. The maple leaves were also cut from the chart using a cutter I bought in the States. The whole thing is backed with corrugated cardboard, which is very stiff and came as packaging with some paintbrushes. It's always satisfying to make a tag using things that are lying around the house!
