Pumpkins....definite signs of Fall

I always resist the end of summer, but when pumpkins are everywhere, I realize I've lost my battle again!  (I guess I could move closer to the Equator where the seasonal changes are minimal....but that's never going to happen.)   Anyway, Louise has chosen "Pumpkins" as the this week's theme for Tag Tuesday.  My tag is essentially one layer:  I chalked a stencil of the pumpkins and then swirled  Distress Inks on the rest of the tag. A leaf image, the background script and a sentiment complete the stamping.  Glossy Accents delineates the creases in the pumpkins.

A really beautifully done tag! Love the stenciling; what a great idea. The rest of the tag is so gorgeous -- with the distress inks and the leaves in the background. And the bottom edging is a lovely touch. Great job, E!!! Denise B.
