Enjoy beautiful moments

This week’s theme at Sunday Stampers is to use the colour green. Here’s the tag I made:

P1080521

I opted for the subtle green of Shabby Shutters distress ink and combined it with Victorian Velvet. Have to say I love these too together. First I blended the inks over some card and then added more through the honeycomb stencil (from memory Box). I’ve added touches of script using a stamp and more Shabby Shutters.

I’ve stamped the flower, which is by Stampotique, using Stazon and then used a waterbrush to remove ink from the petals. Once dry I added some white watercolour pencil. The leaves and centre of the flower were coloured with distress ink.

P1080518

The bee and stitched border were stamped in black.

P1080519

The words were printed from my computer.

P1080521

 

I’ve mounted the tag on black and then white card and added some Victorian Velvet seam binding which was dyed using Distress Stain.

Thanks for buzzing by.

  1. Gorgeous tag, great colours and I love the stamps you have used. You have created the perfected ‘capsule’ of a summer afternoon in a cottage garden.

    • Aww thank you – I must admit I am in love with those colours. I think that stamp is called sunflower so I need to try it out with some yellow too.

I really appreciate it when people take time to leave a comment, thank you so much for doing so :)
