Seasonal inspiration...

Hi, everyone! I was inspired by seasonal colors to make this tag. I am Falling in Love with seasonal colors so I used almost all the seasonal colors I had for the background and the leaves. For the background I used several distress paints, perfect pearls mists, distress inks...The leaves I stamped with Tim Holtz stamps (Falling Leaves) and then I colored them with various distress inks. Some of them I cut from vellum and some from the manila cardstock. Also, I colored the seam binding with some distress stains and paints. The ink bottle I covered with distress crackle paint in Black Soot and then covered with distress crackle paint in Clear Rock Candy. For the bottom of the tag I used Springtime embossing folder.
I, also, used Tim Holtz Odds and Ends stamp set in black Archival ink and I stamped the Paris postal stamp in Sepia Archival ink.
