He's done it again...

That Tim Holtz and his Alterations dies!  We got in a few of his new ones last week at Urban Scrapbook and I couldn't wait to try out his "Autumn Gatherings" one.  I think this one is going to be used a lot!  All those little leaves are perfect for flowers or altogether as I used them on this tag:


I first stamped my manilla tag with his Book Cover stamp(the large one) with clear ink and then embossed it with clear embossing powder. This acts like a relief and then you just ink all over the tag with whatever color you want.  Only the parts that are not embossed will have ink stay on them.  I then inked the leaves and twigs (cut out with manilla smooth cardstock) with various colors of distress ink and adhered them to my tag.  The Autumn letters are from a Tim Holtz Seasonal sticker book and the seambinding was dyed with distress stains and water. I added some brown tulle with the ribbon and I was done.
This Autumn die and the Christmas one are a must for all you card makers, the size of all the pieces are perfect for cards!
Have  a great day!
