Soft Flower

Hello Friends

I got some new stamps a few weeks ago and have not yet inked them up. So I decided to break them out today. I absolutely love this flower stamp. It is called Donna Poppy Bkgrnd. It actually has 3 big flowers on it but I masked two of them off as I just wanted this single flower on my tag.

I used the embossing resist technique on this tag. I stamped the image and sentiment with VersaMark Ink. Then heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Next with a small brush I applied distress inks mixed with water to colour it. I love how the water reacts with the ink you always get a surprise background as it never dries the same way twice.

While the tag was drying I coloured some crinkle ribbon pink using the same Spun Sugar Distress Ink I used on the flower. Finally I added some pink rhinestones and tied the ribbon to finish .

I love the way this tag came out the colours are so soft. I think it is one of my favourites.

 Thanks so much for visiting
