Today I'd like to share a tag I made out of shades of green with a smidge of yellow and blue.

*firstly I covered a Kraft cardstock tag in mowed lawn and peeled paint distress inks and blended them together, I then took my dots mask and used mowed lawn distress ink over the top.

*Next I took a swirl stamp from my Habico swirl set and stamped all over my tag in brown archival ink, in the bottom right I stamped a bar code.

* I stamped 6 different sized flowers in brown archival, and coloured using mowed lawn and shabby shutters distress inks, I used pinflair glue gel to attach each one overlaying them to give them some dimension. I punched some leaves and used peeled paint distress ink to colour them, I glued them down tucking them behind the flowers.
*Next I stamped a bird and used my distress inks to colour him in, I cut him out and stuck him behind the flowers, I then coloured some white card candy with peeled paint distress ink and stamped over with a dots stamp and stuck in centre of flowers.

* I stamped a lace border stamp in brown archival ink and coloured in peeled paint distress ink, I then cut it out and edged the whole tag and lace border with gold paint dabber, i then attached border cut out to the bottom of the tag.

*Lastly I took some green ribbon and threaded it through holes and tied a knot in each end to make a loop for hanging.

Thanks for visiting, I hope you enjoyed the tutorial, come back soon bye for now x x

  2. very pretty tag ! I was a bit intimidated by Mown Lawn - its such a "loud" green but it looks great how you have used it here ! Ali #47

    1. Thank you for your comment x it is a very loud green but I find if you use it over a coloured card instead of white it tones it down quite a lot xx
