Autumn tag!

After posting some photos of our trip I was in need of some crafty time!
The theme at Lavinia Stamps is Autumn Colours - only Lavinia stamps allowed but that's no problem - Tracy's stamps are fabulous.
I did some splodging around and some stencilling to make the background, added some Washi tape then stamped the seed pods and the leap-frogging fairy with Archival 'Coffee', then clear embossed them. Coloured in the pods with a new purchase while on holiday (Woodies - chunky water colour pencils by Stabilo). The fairy was coloured with Distress Markers and Sakura pens. Edged the tag with Distress ink - left on my green sponge. 
The leaves and cones again were from my holiday! The ribbon at the top was from my ribbon box.

I would also like to enter in the challenge at Anything But a Card which is Autumn Magic/Spring Wonder challenge 40

Thanks for looking, Chris
