Clean and Simple Stamping site, as well as the challenge on Make My Monday - to make a floral tag, either on its own or as part of a card. Naturally all these ideas blended into one and this is what I came up with:
The background was made by masking off areas with post-it notes, sponging in colour and stamping over the top with this gorgeous leaf image from French foliage. There's a fabulous ink splodge image in this set too and I added a bit of that over the top.
The label was made with a piece of Whisper White card stock shaped at the top with a corner rounder. I stamped it with leaves using the stamping-off technique which gives a lovely faded look. The rose from Growing Green was stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink and then coloured with my dark red water colour pencil and a blender pen. I cut it out with my fab paper snips, pierced a hole through it and the tag, popped it up onto the tag and tied it on with a length of Baja Breeze seam binding.
All it needed was a sentiment and I thought this gorgeous birthday stamp from Perfect Punches was ideal. It was easy to colour just the bits I needed using markers.
