Green floral tag

Hi, I had a few of these images stamped and embossed ready to make card panels.

When I saw the inspiration pic at The Card Concept
I was inspired by the pillows so
traced around a tag so that I could fit the image in, and cut it out.

I've coloured it with bundled sage, shabby shutters and crushed olive distress inks. It's the first time I've splashed water drops onto these inks and I think it breaks the green up, a little like the petals in the pic. My card is in the clean and layered category.

I'm also linking up to the anything goes challenge at

There's a snippet of hand dyed silk ribbon that a friend from work gave me to finish the tag off.
I think I have a reputation for wanting ribbon scraps as I've been lucky to get a few little bags lately!
Thanks girls!

I'm visiting the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop. All you need is to use 1 scrap or snippet on your project and you can join in the fun.

Materials used:
Penny Black Dreamy stamp; distress inks; sentiment sticker; foam dots.

Thanks for visiting,
Cathy x

Hi Cathy! What a fabulous tag! Beautiful stamp (which I daren't even go and look to see if it's available online) and such gorgeous greens. You're so right, adding the water droplets sort of mottles it - a lovely snippets card!

Sorry for the late visit - playing catch up here!

Hugs, Di xx
