Life is Art




It was my turn to pick the theme for our next Challenge at
Fashionable Stamping Challenges.  my choice   is 'TAGS', so we are asking you to Tag along with us for the next two weeks.
Please pop over for all the details, the generous prize from our regular sponsor Flonz crafts  and see what my design team sisters have been making.


The base of the tag has been random stamped,  using Archival inks, Potting Shed and Fern Green which was clear embossed. Then the whole area was shaded using distress inks,  Mustard Seed, Dried Marigold and a touch of Vintage Photo.
All the stamps I used were from Stampers Anonymous sets by Wendy Vecchi and Tim Holtz.
The flower was stamped and cut out, before painting  with water colours.   I then gave it a coat of clear embossing powder.  It only needed me to raid my scraps box for some trimmings to finish the Tag.

Thank you for stopping by, I do so appreciate you taking time to leave a comment for me..
