Wendy's latest flower creation

Wendy created a really cool piece of art using Art Parts and Clearly for Art on her blog the 29th.  I followed the directions for the flower - what fun and very cool!  I created a tag...am stingy with my Art Parts!  LOL 

First I clear embossed the watercolor paper tag (cut with Tim's new die!) with Wendy's text background stamp.  Butterscotch and Denim pigment inks were smeared all over, as well as some brown distress ink.  I salvaged some of Tim's tissue tape from an earlier colorwash spritz project - the color was perfect for this tag.  I made my flower just like Wendy's but I think mine is a bit darker.  I chose some of her larger leaves, stamped on grungepaper with olive archival ink, then added the black archival dots with another of her stamps.  Wendy's sentiment is at the top but I chose a game tile for the 'L'.  Naturally, it was distressed with sandpaper and inks and a Sepia Copic marker.  A piece of natural colored twine was knotted at the top - it just needed something there.  Felt ribbon and rickrack and a green brad (also distressed with sandpaper) help tie in the color combo.


  1. Susan, this is just stunning! I missed this earlier in my rush to check out Tim's first tag!!

  2. Love it Susan, and I have to try that technique on the flowers!
