Lavinia Stamps "Autumn Fall" Tag

A late night play for me, playing with the Lavinia Stamps "Leaf Sticker Stencil" from set 1 along with a selection of Lavinia Stamps.

 On a plain white tag, I covered the surface with "Sundance" Element Ink.

From the Sticker Stencil pack 1 set, I separated the inner and outer leaf and used the square area with a leaf shaped aperture, laying it in multiple places on the tag and colouring in the area with a deeper shade of Sundance Element Ink.  I then added areas of "Russet Orange" and "Olive" Elements Inks to create an autumnal leaf appearance.  I spritzed some water onto my fingers and clapped my hands over the tag to get large splotches of water.  I then removed the surplus water with a piece of kitchen roll and then used the heat gun to fully dry the tag.

Using second generation stamping and Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" green ink, I stamped sections of the "Winter Spice" verse in different areas.  I then stamped the Lavinia "Maple Leaf" in first and second generation stamping using Versafine Clair "Chianti" dark red ink.

I multi stamped the Lavinia "Small Branch" in second generation stamping using Versafine Clair "Acorn" brown ink.

I used Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink to stamp the fairy, called "Autumn Fall Large".  I used the same ink to stamp the sycamore seeds and also the sentiment called "Don't forget to fly..."

Finally, I used a gold shimmer gel pen to add highlights to the fairy and to the maple leaves.  Giving the edges of the tag a slight dusting of "Chiante" Versafine Clair ink.
