Autumn Leaves

Recently I received an email from Scrapbook News and Reviews where each day showed a different tag with a tutorial to follow along and make your own.  I fell in love with the stained glass look to this one and knew I just had to try it.  I love the stained glass part and the leaves, but I think the Gold Autumn is barely visible due to so much gold tinting.  I think, if I were to do it again, I would do the word more at an angle and in a different color to allow it to stand out more.  Overall though, I am pleased with the results, but it sure took me a LONG time to finish this one.  The first one I colored and was at the split end of the stained glass portion and I managed to smear one color all over the others in the area by dropping the bottle :(  So, back to the drawing board I went and started all over again.  This one, I did rip the tag hanger while tying the ribbon on, but I took some clear tape and held it together as the ribbon would hide it. I can see this done in all pastels or Christmas Colors with a Poinsettia- the possibilities are endless!   *Hugs*
