This is a tag ive also made for the March Tag swap im in.Just love these colours reminds me of spring.Mind we have had some lovely sunny blue sky days here in Norfolk of late even got washing dry outside!
Anyways onto my tag whihc ive cut with Tim Holtz tag die.I have used various distress inks .
Wild honey,dried Marigold,Spiced Marmalade,and Rusty hinge around the edges.I have then stamped the image off a beauitful stamp called"Mariposa"This was sent in a RAK from a friend in the USA.It has the name on the stamp and a label saying bought from Michaels nothing thats all i know.I embossed the image using Stamp in Up black embossing powder.Also inked the edges of the flowers whihc are from Wild Orchard Crafts.Then aded this lovely Glass embellishment from Prima to the centre of the fowers.
