Autumn is certainly with us now and the leaves are just breathtaking as they take on their gorgeous colours before they begin to fall to the ground.
This was the inspiration for this decorated tin which has been upcycled from previously holding sweets from Taiwan.
I used some 12 x 12 leafy printed paper and trimmed to fit the tin. This was stuck in place and over-decorated with some strips of tissue tape from TH Ranger.
I then applied some spotty grosgrain ribbon at the top and bottom as shown on red-line tape. The leaves were diecut with the Sizzix using the tattered leaves die from TH out of gold foiled paper which had been coloured with Adirondak alcohol inks and an applicator in rust, cranberry & butterscotch.
The leaves were applied on sticky pads after scoring the veins with a pair of scissors. Final touches were to add the words using self adhesive letter to spell out 'Summers End'.

I love nothing better than to escape into my very untidy craftroom and mess around with stamps, inks , paint, fabric & anything else that's crafty for that matter!
