I couldn't decide what I wanted to make with this stamp set, or what technique I wanted to use, so I made a whole selection of tags.  I did a black out technique, watercolour paints, ink on a versamat sprayed with water, ink blending, and colouring with markers and Shimmer Brushes, and paper piecing.


For this card, I coloured with the Spectrum Noir TriBlend Markers and I cut out the flowers and leaves and paper pieced them onto the tag.  Then I adhered it to this card base with is Smoothie Cardstock cut on the large rectangle frame die cut, and the medium in the White Daisy.  Gold Gems were added along with the White & Gold Ribbon.


This first selection of tags were cut from Watercolour paper and paints in a rainbow of colours.  I stamped the images after the paint was dry.


This set of tags was created using the ink blending technique and then splattering with water to add some distressing.


This final set shows the Dragonfly coloured in with Lagoon Shimmer Brush. The next one is coloured in using the Blackout Technique. The bottom left is just coloured in with the Spectrum Noir TriBlend Markers and the final tag is created by smearing ink onto my versamat and spraying with water, then I placed the tag onto of the ink to create the splotchy ink pattern.
