Hello again and welcome to my inspiration for our new challenge today over at That's Crafty Challenge Blog.
For the next fortnight we're going Red and Green although you nearly didn't get my inspiration as I misunderstood the theme! Happily for once I actually made something that came together really quickly which has to be a first from me as it's not clean and simple!
I used my Gelli plate to colour the MDF tag by swiping on Paper Artsy Fresco Finish acrylics and pressing the tag on to pick up the paint.
I then used an old credit card to swipe on more paint to make blades of grass. I stamped some stalks from the Tim Holtz Flower Garden stamp set with Archival ink and painted them the same green.
I stamped the poppy heads and painted them with Martha Stewart Satin Acrylics then cut them out and glued them to the tag.
I finished off by addding stencilled dots which I did with my current favourite Dinky Stencil. I tied some green crochet ribbon through the top.
