I cut a large tag from watercolour paper and printed the image using Memento ink.
I used Inktense blocks to put small amounts of colour on the image.
Then, I took a damp brush to blend the colour and add more where needed.
I punched a fancy edge on the cardstock and mounted the tag on the front with some patterned paper.
I punched some flowers from the same paper and shaped the petals*, then I layered them with some sticky flat back gems.
I have also used a Lili of the Valley sentiment "Just to Say" from the postmark collection of stamps.
*Place the flower on a soft pad - I use a dishcloth or some folded kitchen paper and rub the petals with an embossing tool. This will make them curl.

I was lucky enough to go to a craft show this weekend. Sadly my budget was very small but I managed to get a good selection of new stamps. This one is "Stamps Away". I bought it so that I could make some male orientated cards, but I couldn't resist the purple shades when I inked this card.
The background is made using distress ink and a stencil from Creative Expressions.
Today I've spent the whole day playing with my new stash, so I'll be posting more of my creations soon.
Thanks for looking,

My main hobby is papercrafting, but I also dabble in crochet and photography and I HATE SEWING... however, I have recently started making these little felt flower decorations and I am hooked! The shapes are cut using my Sizzix Big Shot which is easy peasy, and then I have fun going through my button stash and layering everything up.
I am going to make some into a garland, and, I am on the lookout for some more dies (I need the owl!) so that I can vary the range.
