Hello everyone from a very wet, windy and dull Sussex with typical Bank Holiday weather! Perfect you might say for crafting and I'm here at last with my inspiration for the new challenge today over at Make My Monday with hostess Jacqueline's theme choice of TAGS AND TOPPERS.
I had a bit of mojo lacking the last few days and must have started this one about 5 times before finally managing to come up with something which I hope you like. It's a nature inspired creation made with some bargain Tim Holtz stamps I picked up when we went on our family holiday to Kent just before Easter (the weather was warmer and better then than it is now too!!!)
I made the background paper by inking up a piece of card with Shabby Shutters, Crushed Olive, Tumbled Glass and Stormy Sky Distress inks using an ink applicator. I then stamped on the wild flowers from CMS001 Nature's Moments with VersaFine Spanish Moss and Majestic Blue. I then stamped on the quote with the blue ink on the side.
I coloured my manila tag using Tim's Distress easy inking technique with Dried Marigold, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Wild Honey Distress inks. I stamped on the wild flowers using the green ink and some second generation stamping for an ethereal look in the background. I tied a scrap of chiffon ribbon through the hole at the top.
I stamped my favourite Kaisercraft butterfly with black ink and the painted it with Ripe Persimmon and Barn Door Distress inks using a damp brush. I cut the image out and added it to the card with my tag.
Have a great day whatever the weather wherever you are and see you again soon.
Hugs, Fliss xx
