I love autumn, maybe because I was born in October :-)
The pumpkins stamp is from Impression Obsession, I coloured it with Winsor and Newton watercolours.
I created the background paper (it is not store bought patterned paper) with a wash of watercolours, when the paint was still wet, I splashed some drops of darker pigment to create the illusion of vintage paper.
The background stamp is from Cornished Heritage.

I made a watercolour wash on watercolour paper with Inktense pencils.
Then I stamped and coloured the orchids with watercolours.
I then used Glossy Accents and stickles on the flowers to give them some texture.
The orchid stamp and sentiment are from Flourishes stamps.
The oval frame is from Waltzingmouse stamps.

This is a tag I made to celebrate London, the host city that hosted the 2012 Olympic Games. Also, London is a city that I know very well, since I lived in there for 5 years.
I coloured a manila tag with Distress Inks. The Big Ben image was stamped with Archival Ink on glossy cardstock. I splashed alcohol ink with a compressed air can. The numbers were die cut from a Tim Holtz's alphabet and numbers die, I coloured the numbers with Distress Inks and I heat embossed them twice with Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel.
