The first three tags and a couple of freebies


I managed to finish the first three tags for the nature themed mini book (see post below this one, here)
In each case I decorated both sides. I am also posting two collage sheets with botanical images which I have collected over the years, many are from the Graphics Fairy. I print these on tissue paper by attaching them to a transparency sheet and then use the images to decorate the tags. Feel free to use them if you want to give this technique a try.

Sticky back canvas on board, texture paste, gesso, acrylic paints, glimmer mist. Images K and Co

7 Gypsies paper, stamping and image from collage sheet below

Prima Romantique paper, old bookpage, ribbon, die cut and butterfly from K and Co

Paper from stash (no idea where it came from) stamping and again butterfly from K and Co.

Stamping on inked background with images from sheet below

Stamping on inked background. Gold round edges
Stamps are mainly from Darkroom Door and Tim Holtz

Make sure to use your best printer setting to get good strong colours!

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
