PAINTED FLOWER CARD/TAG

In between doing several loads of laundry today, I had a little play time and decided to enter a few challenges - something I haven't done in ages.  Every week I bookmark challenges but then never seem to do anything about it.  Have never entered Tag You're It challenge so used the design of their tag inspiration.  Love the colors and striped wallpaper in the Card Concept photo inspiration  - the category I'm entering is "Clean and Layered".   Lastly, Virginia's View Challenge this month is layering and dimensions.


I first stamped the flower outline from Altenew's Painted Flowers onto Canson watercolor paper and then colored with Ranger picked raspberry and peeled paint distress inks - when dry I fussy cut them. I die cut the tags using MFT's stitched tags in charcoal cs and PTI patterned velllum.  The sentiment from HA's Messages with a Flourish was stamped on vellum with Versamark and embossed with HA silver.  Added a little grey and white twine to my tag and then mounted it all on charcoal cs.  As a last minute thought, added a little Wink of Stella to the flower centers.

Thanks for stopping by today and always enjoy reading your kind comments.  Betty
