Spring Tag


I've just found a new challenge based on one of my favourite ever stamp collections so just had to join in at Stampotique Designers Challenge where this week the theme is "Spring".
I cut the tag on my cricut using the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge. I've then stamped flowers from the Winnefred Street stamp set from Heidi Grace using Versamark and clear embossing power and black Stazon.
The Stampotique stamp that I've used is called Girl with Heart Purse by Daniel Torrente. Other stamps used include a small bird from the Clear Art Stamps set Altered Art and a spring stamp from Stampendous.
After all the stamping and embossing was finished, I've inked the tag with mustard seed, peeled paint, fired brick and broken china distress inks.
Finally, I've added some green and pink raffia and an acetate dragonfly from my stash.
I'm also entering this in the Stamp Something Challenge for this week which has the theme "Distress Something"
