Away with the fairies!

Hmmm! Probably!! Actually, I have been having a play with my Lavinia stamps! The challenge this time is to use ribbon! What better than a tag?
I am still happy with some of the sunsets although they have been quite misty at times, so the first thing I did was use distress inks to make a sky. We all know that a fairy twilight can last a while so there are faux bleached trails across the sky to show that she has already been flitting around spreading fairy dust.
 All of the stamped images were stamped in archival black and then clear embossed

The trails and the tree have Stickles fairy dust applied with a sharpened coffee stirrer as it made a finer trail.
I altered the fairy slightly to give her boots for these colder evenings!(I hope Tracey doesn't mind - my own feet have been feeling the lower night time temperatures lately!)
Red, green and gold Stickles were added to the grass and the "ribbon" around the fairy toadstools!
It didn't show much on this photo!
I added sari ribbon and some patterned ribbon to the top of the tag.

I would like to enter the Lavinia Stamp Challenge 9 'Add some Ribbon' 

Thanks for looking, Chris

Oh what FUN. I like how you added the ghost print on the leaves at the top, and I love that ribbon. I see why you like Stickles so much. You did a great job getting yours in the right places. I fear I'm too heavy handed. Lovely, lovely tag!
