Take Joy

tag 1

I did some serious cleaning up in my stamp room over the last few days, so I decided to reward myself last night and played with some more of the new Wendy Vecchi Studio 490 products I bought this weekend.  I used a Kraft tag here, embossing paste, and Red Geranium ink to put this dimensional flower on the tag using the 2 Fancy Flowers stencil.  It is SOOOO fun to use the embossing paste to make that flower just pop off the tag!  Check it out below…

There’s a big variety of other products I used here included a few more of the flowers just sponged onto the tag with Cornflower Blue and Pale Ochre inks.  I sponged a striped border on the bottom of the tag with Potting Soil ink and the Dots & Stripes Borders stencil.  The leaves were made using Fern Green ink and the From the Garden stencil.  On the top right and bottom left corners I sponged some Broken China ink with the Honeycomb stencil, and stamped over everything with the grid stamp in Tea Dye ink.  The sentiment is from Verses Rubber Stamps, and I embellished with some enamel dots (they match better in real life!), a flower button, twine and some hand-dyed seam binding.  I also spattered some Worn Lipstick ink onto the tag using my aqua painter brush.

Can ya’ tell I’m having some fun with these new things?  :) 

Thanks for stopping by!

Another stunning creation! This is the second time embossing paste came up in my internetwandering- it must be because I'm meant to get some.
