Blooming Great

Hello.  Welcome.  Over at PaperArtsy Clare Lloyd started this week with some tags.  I am always keen to make a tag and I loved the flowers so here's my version.

I started by cutting a couple of tags from a piece of card I had left from the last card.  They are about 20 x 7cm each.  Big skinny tags.  I used Pea Coat fresco finish paint through That Special Touch Of Butterfly mask.  Then I tried flipping the mask onto the second tag but the paint was mostly dry so I just did some dry brush stippling.

I forgot to take the photo before I stuck some of the flowers down!!  I used Rose FF paint and stamped the leaf from ELB04.  The flowers are from the same set stamped in black archival onto rose FF and fussy cut

I added some stamping using the small stamps from SM12 in black. 

The first tag I added some fluffy fibres for the tie and  a sentiment.  I also added a couple of metal butterflies from Korthobby attached with tiny pink flower brads.  The second tag I really like that as is so just the fluffy fibres there.
