A Country Garden

Hi everyone!

    Welcome to a summery creation! I was having some fun with some Artistic Outpost stamps here and messing around with some Distress paints and inks....when I began this I didn't really have any ideas at all - I just was having some paint/ink/stamping fun.....

     First I covered the tag with bundled Sage DI. Then I stencilled some Tattered Rose DP through a harlequin stencil.

A brick stencil was used on the other side of the tag using Pumice stone DI. I also used a doily and honeycomb stencil...

Then I began stamping with a mix of archival and distress inks - I used Fern Green and Potting Soil Archival ink and Bundled Sage and Frayed Burlap Distress inks

   The quote was stamped with Potting Soil Archival ink onto card that was coloured with Tattered Rose and Bundled Sage Distress ink.

A die cut flower was attached having been inked with Frayed Burlap DI and had a bronze brad attached

    I used some butterfly tissue tape and added some crochet lace to the bottom of the tag

A rusty heart was added

 A piece of twine was used to make a loop for the top of the tag and a piece of crochet lace added for decoration

     Hope you like my 'Country Garden Tag'! Thanks so much for being here - hope to see you again soon!
