Take time to smell the flowers

This tag is for the March 'Flowers' challenge at Tando Creative.

I have created a larger than usual tag for this project, using the template from the packaging of my Prima Mixed Media doll stamp.  First I stamped the tag with a number of images from my new JOFY stamp set before colouring with different green and blue Tim Holtz distress inks and edging with the black soot.  I spritzed water on the top half of the tag and then added water drops to the lower half and dried with my heat tool.  Next I used the Tim Holtz picket fence distress marker to add white highlights to the image and added a black and white lines to the edge of the tag.  I then covered the whole tag with Tim Holtz rock candy distress crackle paint.  Once dry I added additional stamped and inked layers to the leaves and flowers, again covered in rock candy.  To finish I backed the tag onto kraft card stock and added twine tied through the hole.
Thanks for looking!
