There are always flowers
My mojo had left the building for this challenge until today; the deadline is tonight. What was she thinking???? I decided it was past time to use some of the items I've kept from previous projects because my container was getting quite full.
I started off with a #8 tag that had been colored with Pumice Stone DI over the entire tag, then layered with Bundled Sage and Tumbled Glass DIs. Sunflower Sparkle PP+water was misted over the entire tag. The chipboard letter had been gesso'd but void of color. I did add very small dots around the perimeter which you probably can't see except close-up. The flowers were made (textbook paper adhered to grungepaper) but not colored in any way.
I used the following stamp sets that Wendy designed: Residential Art (flourish), Flower Art (sentiment, background and Celestial Art (background on flowers). The leafy stem is a Sizzix die that was also distressed with inks and my fingers.
Ranger products: Olive, Sepia, Coffee and Black archival inks; Pumice Stone, Bundled Sage, Tumbled Glass, Faded Jeans, Walnut Stain, Vintage Photo distress inks; Sunflower Sparkle Perfect Pearls; Butterscotch and Lettuce pigment inks; Rock Candy crackle paint and the Craft Scrubbie for some very inky fingers.
